After going out of the Champions League in midweek, Inter Milan will return back to the San Siro as they take on an Udinese side that has just a single victory in their 7 away matches in the season so far.

The Nerazzurri failed to once again qualify to the knockout stages of the Champions League since the 2011-12 season, as they were held to a one all draw at home by PSV Eindhoven, allowing Tottenham Hotspur to qualify to the knockout stages with a better head to head record. The Milan side also has managed to win just a single match from their previous 5 games.

The Bianconeri Friuliani has managed to garner just 4 points from their last 5 matches, with a victory over AS Roma the only match they managed 3 points. The team from Udine sits precariously in 17th position with 13 points, just 2 points ahead of Bologna.
