Inter Milan were having a fantastic time throughout the Derby d’Italia last weekend, until their bitter rivals Juventus struck twice late on to escape with three points from the San Siro. Meanwhile, Udinese spent last weekend trading blows with bottom side Benevento, who are already relegated to Serie B. Despite the Witches of the South already being out of the survival race and lagging behind in terms of quality, the Zebrette still couldn’t control that game, as they played out a really entertaining 3-3 draw.



While that thriller was great for the neutral, it wasn’t so great for Udinese. They are now 13 games without a win, and they’re hanging ominously above the drop zone thanks to that terrible run. There’s just three points keeping them clear of danger as things stand, and given how the Zebrette are playing, there’s plenty of reason to panic at the Dacia Arena this weekend. Will that motivate them to a victory against Champions League chasing Inter?



The visitors are aiming to take advantage of a side who have a single point from 12 matches, as they lost 11 straight games before their poor display at Benevento. Meanwhile, Inter won their last away trip, and they should have taken something from their clash with champions Juventus on Saturday night. However, that loss has left them four points shy of the top four, so they can’t afford any kind of slip in the next few games as they try to climb back into the Champions League spots.

Udinese are out to end an awful run of form against Inter, having lost 12 of their last 17 meetings with the Nerazzurri. The hosts have also lost each of their last four home Serie A meetings against Inter, conceding at least two goals in each game. Having lost five home matches on the spin, conceding exactly two goals in all of those, we fully expect another defeat for the hosts on Sunday.

However, Udinese have lost 2-1 in three of their last four home games, while their last five Serie A games have seen both teams score. Inter aren’t exactly the most solid side on the road, while the Zebrette have scored in 77% of their home matches this term. With both teams scoring in five of their last six encounters, we’re going with Inter to win and both teams to score. On top of that, we’re backing a 2-1 away win, which has landed in almost a quarter of Udinese’s home matches.
