Udinese are still in fourth place and Francesco Guidolin sees Roma, Lazio and Juventus as threats for the Champions League.
“I am convinced that Roma are the side in Italy with the most quality, purely in terms of technique,” said the Coach ahead of Saturday's head-to-head.
“We need to be wary of them in the race for the Champions League spots, but also of Lazio and Juventus.
“The way I see it, the Bianconeri are not out of the battle for fourth place.”
Udinese have retained the top four position despite last week's 2-0 defeat at Lecce, which ended a 13-match unbeaten run.
“After so many good results, a setback like the one we had in Lecce is entirely possible,” shrugged Guidolin on LaRoma24.it.
