Lazio predicted lineup analysis vs Udinese: Can Lazio get back to winning after Champions League loss?

We have analyzed a Lazio predicted lineup for their upcoming clash against Udinese at Stadio Olimpico on Monday. In their recent Champions League fixture, Lazio faced a disappointing defeat against Bayern Munich in the second leg of the round of 16, resulting in their elimination from the tournament.

Following this setback, Lazio's aspirations for silverware this season have been dashed, given their current ninth-place standing in Serie A. However, Maurizio Sarri's squad remains determined to secure a European spot for the next campaign. With a two-game unbeaten streak against Udinese, Lazio aims to capitalize on their recent form to climb back into contention for European qualification.

Goalkeeper/Defenders

Lazio's goalkeeper, Provedel, has played a crucial role in their defensive solidity, contributing to the team's nine clean sheets in Serie A this season. Alongside defenders Hysaj, Romagnoli, Gila, and Lazzari, they have formed a resilient backline, conceding goals at an average rate of just 1.1 per game. Those four players might start against Udinese as their two key defenders Marusisc and Pellegrini are suspended.

Despite their overall defensive stability, Lazio faced a setback in their last league game, with two defenders receiving red cards. However, their collective defensive efforts throughout the season have been commendable, and they will look to maintain their defensive discipline and bounce back from the recent disciplinary issues in the upcoming matches.

Midfielders

Lazio's midfield trio of Alberto, Cataldi, and Vecino are poised to play key roles in their upcoming match against Udinese. With Mattéo Guendouzi suspended following a red card against AC Milan, the team will need to adjust its lineup accordingly.

Alberto, serving as the captain and leader, will be pivotal in orchestrating Lazio's midfield play, leveraging his experience and creativity to drive the team forward. Having contributed four assists and scored four goals so far this season, Alberto's influence extends beyond his on-field contributions, providing inspiration and guidance to his teammates as they strive for success.

Attackers

In Lazio's attacking line against Udinese, Zaccagni, Immobile, and Anderson are expected to lead the charge. While Zaccagni and Anderson featured in the last game against AC Milan, Immobile remains the linchpin of the attack.

Despite being 34 years old, Immobile continues to showcase his prowess in front of goal, having already netted six goals and provided one assist this season. He is likely to be the first goalscorer vs Udinese and give his team a valuable lead. With Lazio averaging 1.2 goals per game and mustering 10.7 total shots per game, Immobile's goal-scoring ability will be crucial as they seek to secure a positive result against Udinese.
