Serie A Preview | Roma vs. Udinese: will the Giallorossi respond immediately?

by | Sep 22, 2021 11:11

Roma aim to bounce back immediately against Udinese, who arrive from a negative experience against Napoli last time.

The Giallorossi suffered their first defeat since Jose Mourinho took over, leaving the Bentegodi with a 3-2 loss to Hellas Verona last weekend.

Udinese, who started the season in great fashion, suffered a heavy 4-0 defeat to league leaders Napoli last time and must respond against La Lupa at the Olimpico.

Mourinho and Roma might have one eye on the Derby della Capitale against Lazio this weekend but have a tough test against Luca Gotti’s men.

Matias Vina should be recovered, but Riccardo Calafiori is still expected to start at left-back. Jens Stryger Larsen limped off against Napoli and is uncertain ahead of the game in the Italian capital.
