Inter Milan will be looking to get their Serie A challenge back up and running when they visit Udinese on Sunday evening.

Antonio Conte’s men have dropped six points across their last three league matches, enabling defending champions Juventus to open up a three-point lead atop of the championship going into gameweek 22.

Udinese, meanwhile, are determined to return to winning ways themselves as they are currently on a two-match losing streak.

Ones to watch

Udinese: Rodrigo de Paul

Udinese enter matchday 22 sitting in mid-table, but more importantly nine points above the danger zone. It’s not been the most productive of seasons. The Little Zebras have managed 19 goals to date, which is the joint worst in the league after relegation-threatened Spal (15 goals).

Key to their chances of staving off an immediate future spent participating in Serie B is 17-cap Argentina international (and their top-scorer) Rodrigo de Paul, an attacking midfielder not long ago linked with Inter Milan.

Key stat: No Udinese player has been involved in more Serie A goals this season than Rodrigo de Paul (5).

Inter Milan: Christian Eriksen

Christian Eriksen ended a near seven-year stay at Tottenham this month and will be looking to rejuvenate his career under Conte, who is prone to bettering players.

The 27-year-old Danish international has been a shell of his former self of late, consequently resulting in a decline in value on Football Index to £2.40. But a change in scenery – and playing in a more technical league – could see him return to being one of Europe’s premier playmakers.

Having made a 24-minute cameo in Inter’s 2-1 Coppa Italia win over Fiorentina, his first appearance in the club’s fabled black-and-blue jersey, he’s expected to start in this weekend’s Serie A outing at Udinese.

Key stat: Christian Eriksen created 62 goals across 226 Premier League appearances.

Confirmed Inter line-up:

Squawka prediction

Inter have been rocky of late but should fancy themselves against a Udinese side that is struggling in front of goal, as well as keeping them out at the other end. The absence of Martínez should be a factor, but we can see Conte’s men having enough to grab all three points.

Scoreline prediction: Udinese 1-3 Inter Milan
