Saturday 21st April Udinese v Chievo Since their departure from the Europa League in early March, Francesco Guidolin’s side have experienced a dip in form that has seen them lose their grip on the last Champions League spot.

Recklessness and defensive mistakes cost Lazio dearly and allowed Mattia Destro and Emanuele Calaio to grab two goals each. Andre Dias and Mobido Diakité will be welcomed back with open arms after last [...]
