With just four games to go Udinese welcome Inter at the Dacia Arena on Sunday in a crucial clash for the Scudetto race. Simone Inzaghi’s men suffered a shocking 2-1 defeat away to Bologna last week and must win at all costs, but this would be far from easy, as Udinese have been playing some great football in recent weeks.

Last time: Joaquin Correa announced himself at Inter in the first game between those teams, as the Argentinian scored a second-half brace coming off the bench to grant the Nerazzurri a 2-0 victory back in October.
Udinese v Inter Predictions and Preview
Inter’s 2-1 defeat away to Bologna last time means that now the defending champions must hope for a Milan slip up until the end of the season in order to lift the Scudetto once again. The Nerazzurri had a game in hand, but their loss against Rossoblu leaves them in second place with 72 points, two less than Stefano Pioli’s side.
The ironic part of the Bologna defeat was that ex-Inter forward Marko Arnautovic equalized for Bologna shortly after Ivan Perisic had opened the score, while a horrific error by back-up goalkeeper Ionut Radu gifted Nicola Sansone the winner. Samir Handanovic’s injury during the match warm-up proved to be costly and the Nerazzurri must now hope that Radu’s horror show will not prove to be decisive in the Scudetto race.
With just four rounds to go Inter must go through another tricky away game now, as they travel to Friuli to face Udinese, but La Beneamata have won only one of their last three visits at the Dacia Arena. Gabriele Cioffi’s men are proving to be a tough nut to crack, as their physical counter-attacking style troubled many of the top teams this term.
Udinese had one of their best performances on Wednesday, as they soaked up pressure and punished Fiorentina at Artemio Franchi to eventually earn a remarkable 4-0 win. The Bianconeri lost only two of their last 16 home games in Serie A, although they suffered a surprising 1-0 defeat against Salernitana last time.
Udinese vs. Inter full time result odds
Star striker Beto is still out for the hosts, but the Isaac Success and Gerard Deulofeu have formed a solid partnership in recent weeks. Despite this, it’s only logical that Udinese are 11/2 underdogs to get the three points on Sunday.
The visitors meanwhile will hope to have Samir Handanovic back, while Robin Gosens, Alessandro Bastoni and Arturo Vidal are also doubts due to minor problems. On paper Inter have enough quality and are 4/7 to earn a vital victory in the Scudetto race. However, Simone Inzaghi’s men will face a very good and confident Udinese team, so surprises can’t be written off.
Udinese vs. Inter over/under odds
Six of the last seven games between those teams saw under 2.5 goals, while the same applies for five of Inter’s last seven games on the road. Both sides don’t like to take risks at the back, which could lead to a cagey affair, so our suggestion is to go with under 2.5 goals available at 7/10 in these Udinese vs Inter tips.
Udinese vs. Inter correct score odds
The last game between those sides ended in a 2-0 win for Simone Inzaghi’s men, while Inter’s last victory at Dacia Arena was by the same scoreline back in 2020. The Nerazurri have both the best defence and attack on the league, so going for a 2-0 victory in favour of the visitors at 8/1 might be a good choice ahead of this clash.
Udinese vs. Inter first goalscorer odds
Edin Dzeko was rested against Bologna, as Joaquin Correa and Lautaro Martinez paired up front for the Nerazzurri, with the Bosnian striker starting on the bench. The 36-year-old is expected to return to Inter’s starting XI on Sunday and is 9/2 to break the deadlock, while the odds raise to 49/1 if he does so and the Nerazzurri end up winning 2-0.
