Maurito is chasing new records

Mauro Icardi, Serie A's leading scorer with 14 goals, is chasing new records. After becoming the youngest player in history to reach 70 goals in Serie A, his 15th strike of the campaign would see him join the likes of Vieri and Ibrahimovic, the only players to score at least 15 goals in Italy's top flight for three seasons running since 1994/95.

Eder & Brozovic

Eder has scored more goals against the team from Friuli than any other side (six, one of which came for Inter), while Marcelo Brozovic has discovered a new lease of life since Pioli took over. He's scored four goals - three in Serie A and one in the Europa League - under the new coach.

Former nerazzurri

Samir Handanovic enjoyed a lengthy spell at Udinese, whereas the hosts' Felipe and Faraoni are both ex-Inter.

history so far

The sides meet for the 87th time in Serie A. Inter lead by 41 wins to 20. The Nerazzurri have emerged victorious in six of their last eight trips to the Stadio Friuli, including the last three. Udinese have, however, beaten Inter in their last two lunchtime meetings.

wins(20) draws(14) defeats(11)

UDINE - Ivan Perisic was the hero at the Stadio Friuli as Inter extended their winning run to four games with a 2-1 win over Udinese.

The Croatian winger turned in Mauro Icardi's pass on the stroke of half time to level the scores after Jakub Jankto had broken the deadlock for the hosts.

He then climbed highest at the far post to head in Joao Mario's free kick with just three minutes left on the clock, handing Inter the perfect start to the new year.
