Preview – Udinese vs Inter: Last Chance Saloon To Retain Scudetto

Inter’s title aspirations were dealt a huge blow having lost their game in hand agasint Bologna midweek, now an away win against Udinese is a must. Match today Sunday at 18:00CET.

Gabriele Cioffi has done some solid work with Udinese since taking over the reins at the club last December. The Zebretti have been relegation battlers for a few years now but currently find themselves sitting comfortably in twelfth place having just beaten high-flying Fiorentina in Florence.

Despite missing star striker Beto, the hosts will have wily Serie A veteran and top scorer Gerard Deulofeu raring to go in an effort to help his previous employers AC Milan win the league title.

Cioffi will probably present a very defensive and counter-attack heavy approach to the match. He will hope that hiss side frustrate the visitors for the longest time possible, looking to find weaknesses on the break as tensions mount.

There’s no doubt that Simone Inzaghi and his men were dealt a huge blow with the midweek loss to Bologna. Not only did the Nerazzurri cede mathematical advantage to their rivals Milan, they did so with just four matches left to play.

Inzghi’s keys to unlocking this game will almost solely lie in his ability to manage the psychological pressure and load facing his team.

Inter cannot afford to allow impatience or frustration to enter their lexicon the coming few matches. The Nerazzurri must play like ruthless champions, calm, collected and decisive when necessary.

Tense times await Interisti the wold over.

Team News

With Hakan Calhanoglu suspended and Alessandro Bastoni injured, Inter will be missing two vital components that make the well-oiled machine run smoothly. In slightly better news, it appears that Samir Handanovic has recovered from his minor injury and will be starting the match.

Probable Inter line-up (3-5-2): Handanovic (C); D’Ambrosio, Skriniar, D’Vrij; Dumfries, Barella, Brozovic, Vidal, Perisic; Dzeko, Lautaro.

Stats

Last Season: Udinese 0 – 0 Inter

Last 10 Head to Head: Inter have dominated the encounters with Udinese in recent memory. Inter hold seven victories to just one win for the hosts all the way back in December of 2017.

Keep An Eye On

Lautaro Martinez: Inter must score more goals, there’s just no two ways around that. Inter’s top striker must find the form, the serenity and the lethality to finish any chance presented to him. Expect El Toro to play an important role here.

Officials:

Referee: Daniele Chiffi.
Assistant referees: Tolfo and Pagliardini.
Fourth Official: Baroni.
VAR: Banti and Vopli.

Prediction & Concluding Remarks

Prediction & scorers: Udinese 0 – 3 Inter; Lautaro brace and a Barella goal to keep the league hopes alive for the defending champions.

Concluding remarks: Much like the Bologna game, expect Udinese to want little more than to rain on Inter’s parade; expect Inzaghi to approach this match with a tad more wisdom and experience.
