Udinese coach Francesco Guidolin will be without the services of striker Antonio Floro Flores and right-sided player Dusan Basta through injury.

Mehdi Benatia missed the 3-1 loss to Roma and will be sidelined for Saturday's encounter as well. Giampiero Pinzi is suspended and will likely be replaced by Michele Pazienza in midfield.

Meanwhile, Inter playmaker Wesley Sneijder is still nursing a groin injury and will not feature while Maicon has not yet recovered from his knee problem.

Luc Castaignos is dealing with a hamstring injury and will miss out on the festivities at the Friuli while Walter Samuel has been ruled out for three weeks due to a muscle problem.


  • Udinese has picked up only one win in its last seven encounters (W1, D3, L3).

  • The Zebrette have suffered only one loss in their 16 Serie A matches at the Stadio Friuli this season.

  • Guidolin's men have been held scoreless four times in the past nine games.

  • Inter is unbeaten (W2, D1) since Andrea Stramaccioni replaced Claudio Ranieri and have scored nine goals during that span.

  • The Nerazzurri have secured only one win in their last six league matches away from San Siro.

  • Inter has found the back of the net on just 16 occasions in 17 fixtures away from home.
