Inter Milan will look to keep their title defence alive when they visit Udinese later today.
After a disastrous 2-1 defeat against Bologna in midweek, the Nerazzurri have fallen a point behind cross-city rivals AC Milan in the standings. With just four games left in the season, every point will count for Simeone Inzaghi’s side as just another loss may cost them the Scudetto.
Udinese are currently 12th in Serie A and are coming off an impressive 4-0 win against Fiorentina. I Friulani are closer to a spot in Europe than the relegation zone and have already bettered their points tally from last season. Thus, the home side will have confidence coming into this match and may very well be able to create another upset for the visitors.
The match will kick off at 17:00 UK time at the Stadio Friuli.
Joaquin Correa scored a brace in the reverse fixture last year, which helped Inter to a 2-0 victory.
Roberto Pereyra will return from a muscular injury to replace the suspended Jean-Victor Makengo. There are doubts about Portuguese striker Beto’s fitness, but Gabriele Cioffi is expected to have a fully fit squad at his disposal.
Inzaghi will be without Hakan Calhanoglu, who is suspended after collecting his 10th yellow card of the season, and there are doubts surrounding the fitness of Robin Gosens, Arturo Vidal, Alessandro Bastoni, Felipe Caicedo.
Udinese Probable Line-up (3-5-2):
Silvestri; Becao, Mari, Perez; Molina, Arslan, Walace, Pereyra, Udogie; Deulofeu, Success.
Inter Milan Probable Line-up (3-5-2):
Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, D’Ambrosio; Darmian, Barella, Brozovic, Vidal, Perisic; Martinez, Dzeko.
