Although both sides are ranked within the top half of the league table, Udinese and Roma have stark differences to showcase. While the Udine team have had a roller coaster year-ender, the Roman players delivered stunning results. Fourteen points currently separate the two.


Udinese Calcio

Bianconeri ended 2014 with poor performances; they succumbed to Hellas Verona 1-2 at home before they forced a draw 2-2 with Sampdoria on the road. Two earlier matches, however, gave them stellar successes: a 4-2 (on extra time) win against Cesena in the Coppa Italia and a 1-2 away victory in the Italian top-tier league. With 22 points under their belt, Andrea Stramaccioni’s men have landed a place in the top nine but would still need to gain more triumphs in order for them to earn seeding in any of UEFA’s major tournaments.


A.S. Roma

I Giallorossi have consistently earned significant number of points since the season began, topping the rankings once and trailing behind Juventus for the period leading to the current standings. They ended 2014 with major accomplishments in Serie A: wins from Inter Milan 4-2 and Genoa 0-1 as well as stalemates with Sassuolo 2-2 and Milan 0-0. However, they underperformed at the Champions League whereby they scored zero goals and conceded two to English club Manchester City.


Sports betting tip: Roma will dominate this round, possibly inflicting a goalless defeat to Udinese.
