Udinese boss Francesco Guidolin will be playing against history when his side entertain Roma on Friday evening.
The two teams meet at the Stadio Friuli in Serie A tomorrow night and the Giallorossi don’t bring back great memories for the tactician.
“I haven’t looked at the statistics, but it seems to me that Roma are always a hard opponent for me to digest,” the former Parma and Palermo man stated on Thursday.
Guidolin is right. As a Coach, he’s faced Roma on 25 occasions at his various clubs and his record is pretty poor.
He’s lost the last six games against them. His overall record currently stands at five wins, four draws and 16 defeats.
“Roma are a side who are improving,” Guidolin continued. “They have a good style of play, a good mentality and some important players.
“Add in the fact that I think they are the opponent that I have collected the least points against in my career and we know it won’t be easy.”
