Udinese vs Roma Prediction

Udinese finished 12th in the league last time around. Having sold right-backs Nahuel Molina and Brandon Soppy to Atletico Madrid and Atalanta in the summer, but have managed to sign Portuguese striker Beto on a permanent deal. The 24-year old scored 11 league goals last season for the Italian side.

Roma, on the other hand, have been considered by many to be the dark horses in Serie A this season. Having acquired established Serie A stars like Paulo Dybala and Andrea Belotti on free transfers, Roma will hope to build on their UEFA Europa Conference League success and combine it with Jose Mourinho's renowned second season syndrome.

Belotti: “I know there are great players here already – like Tammy Abraham – but I think that’s only going to be an additional motivation for me. "At the big clubs all the players are great and so that will only drive me to keep on improving and pushing myself.”#ASRoma

We expect Roma to win this game.

Prediction: Udinese 0-1 Roma
