Udinese striker Isaac Success will be fit for tomorrow evening’s Serie A match against Inter Milan.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews.
Former Watford and Granada striker Success has been out on the sidelines for about a week with a bruise.
It has not been a serious injury.
But the Nigerian international has not been able to train as normal due to the painful contusion.
Thus, there has been some doubt regarding whether Success would be able to play in tomorrow evening’s match.
But according to Tuttosport, the 27-year-old will be able to play. He has made a return to training and is fit enough to play at least as a substitute during the match.
However, the newspaper anticipate, Success will not start the match.
Udinese Striker Isaac Success Fit For Inter Clash – But Lucca & Thuavin Will Start
According to Tuttosport, Lorenzo Lucca and Florian Thuavin will be the two starting forwards for Udinese tomorrow evening.
Former Ajax and Pisa striker Lucca joined the Friulani during the summer transfer window.
The 23-year-old was brought in as a replacement for Beto following the Portuguese striker’s big money move to Premier League side Everton.
Meanwhile, Thauvin arrived last January.
The 30-year-old Frenchman came in following a long-term knee injury to Gerard Deulofeu.
Thauvin was a part of the French squad that won the World Cup in 2018. He has had stints with the likes of Marseille, Newcastle United, and Tigres during the past decade.
Deulofeu, on the other hand, is still out with his injury.
The Spaniard has been on the sidelines for nearly a full year.
Udinese are still fighting to give themselves a buffer from the relegation zone in the Serie A table.
The Friulani are not currently in the bottom three. But last Sunday’s 3-3 draw against Hellas Verona kept them closer than comfort would allow.
