Inter Milan v Udinese Preview, Serie A, Thursday 27th March 2014

Inter Milan head into this Serie A clash in hopes of putting last weeks silly loss to Atalanta behind them as they continue to push towards those two Europa League finishing spots. Champions League football is very unlikely seeing as they are eleven points behind Napoli who are themselves a side unlikely to drop many points between now and the end of the Italian season.

Udinese have managed to shock a few teams as of late with the respectable win over AC Milan who seem to be struggling this year, not only that we also see them run Roma to the wire in a game that eventually ended  3 – 2 to the second placed side. Udinese haven’t won away from home since the beginning of February when they beat Bologna 2 goals to nil.

Inter Milan v Udinese Team News

Inter Milan Team News:

Twenty nine year old Slovenia International goalkeeper Samir Handanovic looks set to start his twenty ninth game on Thursday night with his being this years number one goalie. As for goals Inter Milan are relying heavily on veteran Rodrigo Palacio who has so far scored a respectable thirteen goals in twenty nine games and is currently the clubs top goalscorer ahead of defender Nagatomo who has scored five goals so far this season.

Udinese Team News:

So far this season Udinese have had to use three of their four goalkeepers more often than not with each of them hitting near ten appearances each. Brkic (11) or Kelava (10) are more likely to be starters for Thursday nights game over the youngster Scuffet who has played eight games so far. Udinese top scorer is the Italian veteran Anotonio Di Natale who has so far scored ten goals in twenty seven games.

Inter Milan are only in slightly better form if only taking the last 5 games into account, but overall they would take the advantage anyway as they are eight places above Udinese in the Serie A League.

Inter Milan v Udinese Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

This Thursday has on offer a great spectacle from the Serie A League on BT Sports 1 HD with Europa League challenging side Inter Milan taking on Udinese who are just ten points away from a relegation battle. You could predict that Udinese are safe from the drop now but with looking at their next five games I can only see a win predicted against bottom club Catania.

This game as well as their next against Catania would be seen as their two easiest games in their next five as they soon will face Fiorentina, top side Juventus and then Napoli who will all be favourites to win their games against Udinese even though the last two mentioned are away from home. Inter Milan themselves have an easier run with their hardest game being Parma who are on level points and in a Europa League finishing spot.

My predictions for this game do tend to favour the famous club of Internazionale as they look to fight their way up into a European competition finishing spot. Fighting for a Champions League spot however would be considered close to impossible so the Europa League would be their best bet for next year. My first prediction will be for Inter Milan to win with both teams scoring on the night. The other will be for a total goals scored of 3+ on the night which I think is a fair assumption considering that Udinese will unlikely sit back and take a beating without potentially scoring themselves.
