Udinese take on Inter at the Dacia Arena on Sunday evening, May 1, in round 35 of the Italian Serie A. The visitors have already lost this week and now have no right to lose points. Full statistics and all current odds for the match can be viewed at how to register with 1xbet.
“Zebras” are tucked in the middle of the championship standings and have no tournament goals for the rest of the season as such. They are 12th on the table, with a total of 43 points from 34 games played. They have scored 53 goals and conceded 52. In their last three matches there was only one win, but what a victory it was – last Wednesday the hosts thrashed Fiorentina 0-4 away (1, Italian), with the goals coming from Deulofeu, Mary, Wallace and Udogie.
The aforementioned Spanish winger is the team’s top scorer this season (12 goals). Another striking force in the sideline is forward Betu, goalkeeper Antonio Santurro and the suspended Jean-Victor Makengo.
Simone Inzaghi’s side led Serie A for a long time but suffered a slump in February. There was only one win in a month (2-0 against Roma) in seven games. The result sees Milan find themselves just ahead of the Nerazzurri. Now, the Bianconeri have amassed 72 points from 34 games played. They have scored 72 goals (the most in the league) and conceded 27 (the fewest in the league). The home side are in good form, having won five games in their last six, conceding only four goals. The Nerazzurri got a 3-1 win over Roma at the Giuseppe Meazza last Saturday.
The away game against Bologna was supposed to be a happy one, but they unexpectedly came to blows last Wednesday in a 2-1 defeat at the hands of an unmotivated mid-table side. That result was neither deserved – Milan missed plenty of chances before a nasty error by reserve keeper Radu. The visitors’ attacking duo of Jacko and Lautaro Martinez have now scored 29 goals in the current league season. Only centre-back Alessandro Bastoni is sidelined.
The teams have already met each other in the first round of the current national championship, and that time “Inter” got the upper hand with a score of 2-0. In the last 5 face-to-face matches, the Zebras have only once failed to lose – a 0-0 draw in January last year.
Udinese vs Inter
There’s a big difference in motivation: While the visitors are fighting for the league title, for the home team the season is essentially over. The Milanese need to rehabilitate themselves in front of their fans after the defeat in Bologna and continue to chase the Rossonerri. Any loss of points now amounts to the end of the race for the Scudetto. Inzaghi had to have a serious talk with the players and shake up the team. Our prediction is a confident Inter win.
