The Friulians dominate the challenge with the Giallorossi, reached 10 points
Udinese overwhelms Roma 4-0 in the match of the fifth day of Serie A. The Friulians go up to 10 points and hook the Giallorossi, at a distance from the Milan-Napoli duo that commands the table at 11.
The success of the bianconeri is very clear and takes shape right from the start. Udinese broke the deadlock in the 5 ‘with Udogie. On a cross from the right, Karsdorp thinks of placing the ball towards Rui Patricio: the touch of the chest becomes an assist for Udogie, who swoops on the ball and anticipates the Roma goalkeeper by bagging for the 1-0. The hosts dictate the pace and tangono in hand the ball of the game.
Roma tries to react but only lights up with Dybala’s initiatives: too little to straighten the situation. At the start of the second half, Roma claimed a penalty in vain for a contact on Celik: the referee Maresca let it go. Udinese continues to grind the game and finds the deserved doubling. Samardzic shoots left from 20 meters, Rui Patricio is fooled by the rebound: 2-0 in the 56th minute. Roma strikes a shot in the 60th minute: corner from the right, Matic hits his head and presses the ball on the post.
The bianconeri are not frightened and do not retreat. The umpteenth restart produces the three of a kind in the 75th minute. The ‘4×100’ Friulian starts, Pereyra inspires and concludes with the left diagonal: Rui Patricio is late, 3-0 and game over. Udinese does not stop, it continues to sink when it can and poker falls. It’s up to Lovric to finish another perfect action: 4-0.
