Inter winless in four: worst league run in 2012/13

Inter go into this fixture having not won in their last four championship outings, recording one draw and three defeats. It is the Nerazzurri's longest run without a Serie A victory this season. The last three points were secured against Parma in a 1-0 win at the Meazza on 21 April.

Seven wins on the bounce for Udinese: their best ever winning run in Serie A

Udinese have clocked up seven consecutive wins in the league, against ChievoVerona (3-1 at home), Parma (3-0 away), Lazio (1-0 at home), Cagliari (1-0 away), Sampdoria (3-1 at home), Palermo (3-2 away) and Atalanta (2-1 at home). The last time they bagged less then three points was on 30 March, when Bologna ground out a 0-0 draw at the Stadio Friuli. Guidolin's men have thus set a new club record for consecutive wins in Serie A. The previous record of six games was established between April and May 2009.

Di Natale Serie A's most decisive player this season; top Italian marksman for 4th year running

Antonio Di Natale is the most influential player of the 2012/13 Serie A campaign, his goals earning the Zebrette 31 of the 63 points they have accumulated so far. His brace against Atalanta in Udinese's last outing on 12 May took Di Natale's goal haul to 22 in the league this season, meaning he has surpassed the 20-goal mark in Serie A four years in a row, totalling 102 strikes from 139 appearances. The veteran hitman has also been the highest-scoring Italian for the last four years. In 2009/10 and 2010/11 he was Serie A's top scorer with 29 and 28 goals respectively. In 2011/12 he plundered 23 goals to finish joint third with Cavani (Napoli) behind Milito (24, Inter) and Ibrahimovic (28, AC Milan). This year Di Natale is second behind the tournament's top scorer Cavani, who has 28 to his name.

Guidolin hoping to clinch European spot with 300th league win

Francesco Guidolin is one step away from racking up his 300th career victory in professional league football in Italy. He has won 197 games in Serie A, 46 in Serie B, 38 in Serie C-1 and 18 in Serie C-2. He has also drawn 246 matches and lost 225, taking his total tally as a coach in Italian professional leagues to 770. Guidolin recorded his first win on 15 January 1989 when his Giorgione team beat Pergocrema 1-0 at home in Serie C-2. In Italy he has also coached Treviso, Fano, Empoli, Ravenna, Atalanta, Vicenza. Udinese, Bologna, Palermo and Parma.
