Buoyed by a thrilling 3-0 success over Napoli, Inter Milan will look to retain top position in the standings when they take on Udinese on Saturday. Our sportsbook offers the best markets and live betting in the Italian top-flight league.
Inter Firing on All Cylinders
Last year, Inter had a successful season only in cup competitions, winning Coppa Italia and reaching the Finals in the Champions League, where they lost in a close match against Manchester City.
However, they were not as successful in the domestic league, finishing third, 18 points behind the champions, Napoli. Inter has shown no signs of regression, losing just one of their 19 matches this term and they find themselves at the summit of Serie A.
They easily secured the Champions League knockout phase and they will now focus on keeping their leading spot in the domestic league.
Even though Juventus is keeping up the pace with them, with only two points behind, Inter undoubtedly looks like the best team in Italy after more than the third of the season, and we will continue to include them in our Serie A picks and parlays.
In the previous game versus Napoli, Stefan de Vrij and Denzel Dumfries had to leave the field due to injuries and will miss the Udinese game. Besides them, Benjamin Pavar, who already missed the previous few games, will remain sidelined.
Udinese Struggling on the Road
The visitors are 16th in Serie A and have not been great on their travels. Serie A betting fans shouldn’t expect them to pull off the upset on Saturday.
Their only road win came against AC Milan, which was impressive. However, 4-1 and 3-1 losses to Napoli and Roma in recent road games will not fill Udinese with much confidence as they head to San Siro.
In the previous decade, Udinese has been mostly in the lower or middle part of the league’s table. This year, the team had one of the worst starts in a while and they are also hit by injuries.
After the international break in October, the club tried to change its poor momentum by replacing Andrea Sottil. Although the new coach, Gabriele Cioffi, insists that they are getting better, nothing should change by Saturday.
A key central defender, Jaka Bijol, is the newest name on the injury list. The 24-year-old Slovenian missed the previous game vs. Verona with an ankle injury and will most likely remain sidelined for at least two more weeks.
Inter Deadly in Front of Their Fans
Inter Milan has won four of their last five matches against Udinese. The visitors have won only one of their last 18 Serie A fixtures, while Inter has lost just once in 19 matches. Four of the last five meetings between these sides have seen at least three goals on the scoresheet.
Inter won their last five home games against Udinese, keeping three clean sheets. The visitors have scored just five goals in seven road games this season.
