Rejuvenated Inter Milan face Udinese in Serie A this Saturday, hoping to continue their recent run of form at the Stadio Friuli.

After dropping points in back-to-back games to Sampdoria and AS Roma, the Nerazzurri hit back by driving out Fiorentina from the Coppa Italia. They then bested the reigning champions Juventus in a dominant 2-0 league victory.

They're now second in the standings again, just three behind leaders AC Milan, whom they face in the Coppa Italia next week.

Antonio Conte's side will definitely have one eye on that derby, and Udinese will be looking to make the most of their distraction.

With just four wins from 18 games, and none in the last seven, Le Zebrette are in free-fall right now, and inching ever closer to the drop zone.

However, they managed to hold an out-of-sorts Atalanta side to a 1-1 draw in their last outing, despite their obvious struggles.


Udinese vs Inter Milan Head-To-Head

In 49 meetings between the sides, Inter Milan boast a vastly superior record with 24 wins to Udinese's 13. Udinese's last win came back in December 2017.

Last season, the Nerazzurri comfortably did the domestic double over the team from Udine, winning 3-0 on aggregate over two legs.
