Udinese vs Inter: Line-ups



Udinese Will Make it Tough for Inter


Having witnessed an abrupt end to his side’s 11-game unbeaten run on the road in Serie A, Simone Inzaghi will now attempt to rally his troops – including a tearful Radu – and avoid sinking to a second successive away loss for the first time in over two years.


The Nerazzurri had won each of their five previous outings prior to that setback – including victory over Milan to seal a place in the Coppa Italia final – and they will also arrive in Udine with precedent clearly on their side.


In the process of winning six of their last eight games against Sunday’s opponents in Serie A, Inter have not conceded on seven occasions; and the Bianconeri’s last win in this fixture came back in December 2017.


A team transformed under Cioffi, Udinese have also netted the second-highest tally of goals in the last 15 minutes of play this season (16 so far); scoring at least once after the 75th minute in three of their last five outings.


They now sit closer to the European places than the relegation zone, which was uncomfortably close when Cioffi took charge – and have already bettered last season’s points tally. Therefore, confidence is sky-high in the camp, and another upset may even be possible on Sunday.

DPP Verdict

Having lost just four times at home all season, Udinese are a force to be reckoned with at the Dacia Arena, but Inter arrive with the bit between their teeth and are sure to leave nothing in reserve following Wednesday’s events. The hosts are set to score at least once, given their front-line fluency of late, but the champions will not make the same mistakes again and should be able to grind out a precious victory.
