Inter Milan predicted lineup vs Udinese: Match Preview

Inter defeated arch-rivals Juventus 2-0 in the Serie A in their most recent match. Ex-Juventus player Arturo Vidal rose the highest to meet an inch-perfect cross from Nicolo Barella, putting the Nerazzuri on the lead, against a team managed by his former partner in midfield. In the second half, young center-back Alessandro Bastoni showed great skill in finding Barella with a through ball, who then latched on to it and smashed one against the roof of the net, doubling Inter’s lead with less than 20 minutes left on the clock.

Even Cristiano Ronaldo could not inspire Juventus to mount a comeback effort from there on and Conte’s side won all 3 points, fair and square. The win takes Inter to 2nd place, 3 points behind rivals AC Milan, who won 2-0 against Cagliari later through a Zlatan Ibrahimovic brace.

On the other hand, Udinese are on a poor run of form, with their last win in a competitive fixture coming against Torino on 12 December. Udinese are 15th in the Serie A league table, with a low return of 16 points from 17 games. They will be playing against the odds when they host Inter, and a positive result here against the Nerazzuri will provide a much-needed morale boost for Udinese.
