Serie A title contenders Internazionale look to add another three points on Sunday at Dacia Arena as they travel to face Udinese, who are aiming to end the season on a high.

 

Internazionale suffered a 2-1 defeat against Bologna at Stadio Renato Dall'Ara in their last Serie A match to end an eight-match unbeaten streak, putting them in second place on 72 points. The Nerazzurri are two points behind first-placed Milan. The Nerazzurri lead fifth-placed Roma by 14 points for a spot in the Champions League.

 

Udinese sit in 12th place on 43 points, having scored 53 goals and conceded 52. Udinese won their last Serie A match 4-0 at Stadio Artemio Franchi against Fiorentina.

 

The previous Serie A fixture between the teams saw Inter win 2-0 at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in October. Joaquín Correa led the Nerazzurri with two goals, scoring in the 60th and 68th minute.

 

Inter have got the better of Udinese of late, unbeaten in their last eight Serie A matches (W6 D2 L0). Udinese are looking for their first league win in fixtures between the two clubs since December 2017. The Nerazzurri have outscored the Friulani 15-1 during their unbeaten streak.

 

Looking at players who have made a difference in 2021/2022, Internazionale's leading attacking threats have been Lautaro Martínez and Edin Dzeko, who have scored 16 and 13 times, respectively. Martínez is tied for third among the league's top scorers in 2021/2022, while Dzeko is tied for seventh.

 

Deulofeu has caught the eye for Udinese this season. He is the club's top scorer with 12 goals, seven of those having been the tone-setting first of the match.

 

At Dacia Arena this season, Udinese have six wins, seven draws, and four losses in 17 Serie A contests. In league matches on the road this season, Inter have earned 33 points from 51 available (W9 D6 L2).

 

In their last six league matches, Udinese have won four, drawn one and lost one. Inter, meanwhile, have won four, drawn one and lost one in their last six.

Among teams currently in Serie A, only against Fiorentina (5) has Inter’s Ivan Perisic has scored more goals than against Udinese (4 – also against Bologna), including his first brace in the competition in January 2017.

Udinese have scored the second-most goals in the last 15 minutes of play in Serie A this season (16 goals) with only Atalanta scoring more during this period (18); they have scored at least once in this period in three of their last five matches (5/12).
