Lazio v Udinese Preview, Serie A, Sunday 25th August 2013

Lazio had a good pre-season with winning both of their matches against Spezia 3-0 and Nice 1-0 away from home, but more recently had to face last years champions Juventus in the Super Cup in which Lazio took a heavy 4 – 0 loss much to manager Vladimir Petkovic’s disappointment. With that loss behind them they are looking forward to getting their Serie A campaign off to a good start come Sunday where whoever plays at home between these two sides usually ends up the winning side.

Udinese have had a busy summer so far with after their club friendlies, in which they won one and lost the other they have spent most of the summer preparing for the UEFA Europa League with having played 3 qualifying matches to date. Their more recent one ended badly with losing 3 – 1 at home against Czech Republic side Slovan Liberec. Only to have to win convincingly away from home at the end of this month or it could be the end of the Europe campaign already.

Lazio v Udinese Team News

Lazio Team News:

Vladimir Petkovic has been a busy manager this summer having 12 new faces sign for the club on permanent deals with the more notably being Lucas Biglia from Anderlecht for £6 mill and then Felipe Anderson from Brazilian side Santos for £7.2 million. It doesn’t stop there either with 11 new faces on loan and then 13 players leaving the club with on loan or permanent deals with the exclusion of Louis Saha who has chosen to retire ending an incredible career.

Udinese Team News:

I’m starting to think these Italian sides just buy and sell their whole team before the season starts, with Udinese a prime example with the addition 16 new faces on permanent deals and also 25 players joining and leaving on loan. 19 players have also left the club for an estimated total of £23 million.
