In an epic showdown at Stadio Olimpico, AS Roma took on Udinese Calcio in the 30th round of Italy’s Serie A league. This game was a critical opportunity for the “Giallorossich” to solidify their position on the league table, after losing points to AC Milan and Inter. According to the online bookmaker Vulkanbet, Roma was the favourite to win the match (1.90 for the win).

The match was intense from start to finish, with both teams playing with high levels of energy and determination. Despite this, neither team was able to create any significant threat in the early minutes of the game.

However, in the 21st minute, Mancini had a golden opportunity to put Roma in the lead. After a series of crosses and a brief commotion in Udinese’s penalty area, he headed the ball towards the goal. But unfortunately, Marco Silvestri was able to make the save with ease.

In the 34th minute, Roberto Pereyra played the ball with his hand in Udinese’s penalty area, resulting in a penalty kick for Roma after a video review. Although Cristante missed the penalty by hitting the post, 20-year-old Edoardo Bove quickly seized the opportunity and sent the ball into the back of the net, securing his first goal of the season.

In the second half, Roma continued their relentless pursuit of victory, and it was Andrea Belotti who made the breakthrough in the 55th minute. Belotti received the ball and ran with it for nearly half the length of the field before passing it to Lorenzo Pellegrini, who capitalized on the opportunity and scored a goal.

Despite Udinese’s best efforts to come back, Rui Patricio denied Roberto Pereyra’s penalty kick in the 67th minute, keeping Roma in the lead. From that point on, Udinese struggled to keep up with the pace of the game and failed to find the back of the net.

In the final moments of the game, Tammy Abraham sealed Roma’s victory with an incredible goal, thanks to a well-executed pass from Lorenzo Spinazzoli. Nicola Zalewski also made an appearance in the game in the 74th minute.

With this decisive victory, Roma now sits comfortably in 3rd place on the league table with 56 points, leading AC Milan by three points and Inter by five.
