Our match prediction:
Inter’s unexpected defeat to Genoa coupled with AS Roma’s last gasp victory effectively ended team’s Champions League hopes, with the Nerazzurri now sitting seven points behind their top 3 rivals. The defeat came after back to back wins over Frosinone and Napoli, where Roberto Mancini’s side hadn’t conceded a single goal, and while their back line again looked good, the attacking performance left a lot to be desired. The Nerazzurri now take on in-form Udinese, who defeated both Napoli and Fiorentina at Friuli of late, although team’s shocking away form cannot give them plenty of reason for optimism at the moment. Namely, Udinese have now failed to win any of last eight away fixtures in Serie A (D3 L5), although it has to be noted that they managed to score in six of those matches. And with Inter Milan struggling at the moment, we predict the Friulani will play out a fourth 1-1 draw in last seven away games.
