    Time:90'
    • Udinese
    • Internazionale
    • 90+3' The final whistle goes, and Udinese claim their first win over inter in 14 matches! Leonardo's 100% record as Inter boss comes to an end.
    • 90+1' Inter substitution: Davide Santon replaces Chivu.
    • 89' Three minutes of injury time are signalled. That gives the home crowd at the Friuli three minutes to pogo in unison in the stands!
    • 87' Udinese substitution: Huge applause for Di Natale as he is replaced by German Denis.
    • 85' Allt he action is in the inter half now. Not much sign of a late rally from the champions.
    • 84' From potentially going second, Inter could drop back to sixth if Juve win at Sampdoria in the match which follows this one.
    • 81' Castellazzi is called into action to save Sanchez's strike and Di Natale pounces on to the rebound... his touch is heavy and the ball runs out of play.
    • 80' Inter are struggling to make any headway into the Udinese half right now. They look bereft of ideas.
    • 78' If Udinese hang on and wiin they won't actually move up any higher than their current eighth place, but they will close the gap on Juve and Palermo (who played yesterday) to just one point. Serie A table
    • 77' Remember, coming up right after this match is coverage of Sampdoria v Juventus at 14:00, plus at 19:45 leaders Milan travel to Cesena.
    • 75' Biabany with a late challenge on Asamoah that catches the Udinese man on the shin. The substitute is fortunate not to go into the book just after coming on for that challenge.
    • 74' Sanchex fires a low square ball across for Di Natale to hit on the volley, but he can't get his boot around the ball well enough to trouble Castellazzi.
    • 72' Chivu is the second Inter player to go into the referee's book for a foul on Sanchez.
    • 71' Inter substitution: Biabany replaces Motta.
    • 69' GOAL!! Di Natale's initail delivery is cleared but Asamoah heads it right back into the box. One Inter defender is too slow in stepping out and plays Domizzi onside, and the defender turns the ball past Castellazzi to give Udinese a two-goal cushion!
    • 68' Stankovic brings down Inler with a cheeky clip of the heels, but the referee is having none of it. Free-kick to Udinese...
    • 67' Inter send all the big men forward for a free-kick, but its another poor delivery from Maicon. He's not having the best of days today.
    • 65' A strat pass from Isla sparks an Inter break. Eto'o tries to get past Mehdi Benatia down the left but the Moroccan defneder does a great job of halting his progress.
    • 64' Cordoba brings down fellow Colombian Zapata as Udinese begin to put the pressure on once more.
    • 62' Play is going from end to end now, but not much in the way of chances being created. Whoever comes out of this patch on top will be in control of the result.
    • 60' Asamoah lifts in a high ball that Di Natale fails to connect with on the volley, but the flag was again up against him.
    • 59' Grweat link-up between Asamoah and Armero down the left and Udinese win a corner. Inter can clear but Udinese retain possession.
    • 58' The referee takes a minute or two to calm everything down, and finally we can continue.
    • 57' Motta fouls Sanchez and gets a booking, sparking a bit of a melee between the two teams.
    • 56' The corner comes in, Cambiasso goes down, Motta shields the ball but eentually Udinese clear.
    • 55' Maicon lifts in a free-kick that is headed behind for a corner.
    • 54' Maicon goes on a penetrative run into the Udinese box, but heads down a blind alley and his eventual cross is poor.
    • 52' Cracking start tot he half from Udinese. Coach Guidolin must have told them at half-time that Inter are there for the taking. Can the champions weather this storm and find a way back into this game?
    • 51' It will be Maurizio Domizzi to strike this left-footed... clipped off the top of the bar! Castellazzi must have got a touch, because a corner has been given.
    • 50' Pinzi is played through and Castellazzi has to rush off his line to block the shot! Inter's back line all at sea here, and now u8dinese have a free-kick...
    • 48' Cordoba makes a poor attempt at clearing Isla's cross and the ball falls for Di Natale... fired wide of the near post! The Udinese captain had to react quickly there, but he could have extended his side's lead.
    • 47' Zapata's ball over the top is volleyed clinically by Di Natale... but he was offside when the pass was made.
    • 46' The second half is underway!
    • 45+1' The half-time whistle blows, and this match has certainly lived up to its billing so far. Expect more goals in the second half.
    • 45' Pandev knock Maicon's ball past Zapata and is caught by a high boot from the defender. Pandev did make a meal of what was only a slight touch, and the referee waves away the appeals. Well, in fact, he wags his finger at the Inter players appealing for a free-kick. Nice touch.
    • 44' Silky skills from Sanchez by the byline, but Cordoba makes a firm challenge on him.
    • 43' Zanetti and Maicon both go down in the Udinese box, but they'll have to make do with a corner kick, which comes to little except a goal kick.
    • 42' Swift break from Udinese, although a rare poor first touch from Di Natale loses some of the momentum. Inler slips the ball through to Pinzi, who is offside.
    • 40' Neat, incisive play through the Udinese back line from Inter, before Maicon's cross is too long for Eto'o to get a shot in.
    • 38' Sanchez is ambushed by three Inter players and wins a set piece in a similar position to Stankovic's. Di Natale goes for the curling pass to the far post where Asamoah is charging towards, but he can't reach it. Goal kick to Inter.
    • 37' It's stankovic who strikes... drilled hard and low under the wall and Handanovic gets down to turn it round the foot of the post! Great strike, great save.
    • 36' Inter have a free-kick, central and some 25 yards from goal. Eto'o looks as though he fancies taking this on though...
    • 35' Plenty forward for an Udinese free-kick, but Di Natale's delivery doesn't beat the first man.
    • 34' Lovely interplay between Di Natale and Armero on the edge of the box. Udinese looking more likely to get the next goal, but it's a fun, open encounter.
    • 32' Stankovic tries a chipped finish that swerves through the air as it heads for goal, but lands on the roof of the net.
    • 31' Sanchez holds the ball and waits for Isla's run. He plays it into his fellow Chilean's path perfectly but Isla's low ball across to Di Natale is easily intercepted.
    • 30' Eto'o tries a strike from 20 yards out, but it rolls along the turf to Handanovic for an easy stop.
    • 28' Chivu lifts an inviting ball over the Udinese back line for Cambiasso, who heads over the bar. A difficult chance for the Argentine to steer on target.
    • 27' Di Natale has now scored four goals in his career against Inter, including the two games he played against them last season. (Opta)
    • 26' That is Di Natale's 15th league goal of the season. He is also the player who has had more shots, 67, than anyone else in Serie A this term. (Opta)
    • 25' GOAL!! Di Natale curls a dipping strike over the wall and into the bottom corner out of Castellazzi's reach! Lovely free-kick from the Udinese skipper.
    • 24' Udinese have got their tails up now. Gokhan Inler is brought down on the edge of the box by Stankovic. This is a great chance for a dead ball strike here...
    • 23' Before kick off today, Udinese had not scored in four of their last five matches played at the Friuli against the Nerazzurri. (Opta)
    • 22' Zapata's first league goal since may 2009 has got his time back on level terms.
    • 21' GOAL!! Udinese are level! Inter fail to fully clear from the corner and the ball comes to Cristian Zapata on the edge of the box. The Colombian defender has time to line up his strike and fire past Castellazzi into the near top corner!
    • 20' This time Udinese clear the corner fully and can attack. Isla wins a corner...
    • 19' Zanetti wins Inter a corner. Maicon's delivery is headed back and Stankovic strikes a thunderous volley... tipped over the bar by Handanovic! What a wonderful save! The Slovenian keeper was at full stretch there!
    • 18' This is the third meeting between Francisco Guidolin and Leonardo as managers. They have both won one match each. (Opta)
    • 17' That's Stankovic's fifth goal of the season, and second in his last three games.
    • 16' GOAL!! Inter take the lead! Possession is gifted to Thiago Motta on the edge of the Udinese box. The Brazilian pulls the ball back for Dejan Stankovic who fires past Handanovic the put the champions ahead!
    • 14' Inter have plenty of men forward as they build patiently in the final third, but Cristian Chivu's cross is too high and long for anyone to make use of in the Udinese box.
    • 12' Great tussle in midfield as Zanetti is robbed of the ball and then Sanchez is brought down.
    • 11' Plenty more pressure from Udinese. Sanchez has a bad time of it as he gets bundled over by Lucio and then berates the referee for not giving him a corner.
    • 10' Di Natale tries to play in Kwadwo Asamoah at the byline, but Lucio stays strong and sees the ball out for a goal kick.
    • 9' The visitors manage to survive the corner comfortably. Udinese look the most threatening in these early stages.
    • 8' Inter send plenty of men forward in anticipation of Maicon's free-kick from deep on the right... the delivery is very poor and Udinese can break. Pinzi's cross is hacked into the air by Maicon, and Castelazzi has to tip it on to his own bar to stop it sneaking into the net! Corner to Udinese.
    • 7' The conrer is played short to Giampiero Pinzi who crosses. He picks out Sanchez at the far post... headed wide! First real chance of the game falls to Udinese.
    • 6' Udinese win the game's first corner thanks to Di Natale's persistence.
    • 4' First foray forward from Inter. Samuel Eto'o can't dig the ball out from under his feet and is tackled, and Esteban Cambiasso's snapshot is a simple stop for Samir Handanovic.
    • 3' Alexis Sanchez has scored in each of the last four days of championship. The Chilean is the player who has carried out the most successful dribbles in the league up to now, with 58. (Opta)
    • 2' Alexis Sanchez races after a ball over the top of the Inter defence, but Ivan Cordoba is on hand to clear for a throw.
    • 1' The match is underway!
    • 11:28 The players are coming out on tot he pitch now. Inter are led by Javier Zanetti, who recently broke Beppe Bergomi's club appearance record. We'll be underway shortly...
    • 11:25 Hard to know which way this will go. Inter have won the last five league matches against Udinese, and are unbeaten in their last 13 meetings. However, the Bianconeri have won six and drawn the other in their last seven homes games in the league, and have scored at least twice in each of their last five games. (Opta)
    • 11:20 We have two of Serie A's sharpest shooters on display today: Samuel Eto'o has already hit 12 league goals this season (plus another seven in Europe) while Udinese's Antoni di Natale has struck 14 times in Serie A this term. Another player looking out for is Chilean winger Alexis Sanchez, who has attracted plenty of attention from top clubs across the continent.
    • 11:15 Internazionale striker Diego Milito, who looked back to top form after a series of niggles, misses out after yet another thigh strain. A club statement also said injured duo Julio Cesar and Wesley Sneijder were still working away from the squad in training so their return to action looks some way off.
    • 11:10 UDINESE (3-5-2) - Handanovic; Benatia, Zapata, Domizzi; Isla, Pinzi, Inler, Asamoah, Armero; Sanchez, Di Natale /// INTER (4-3-1-2) Castellazzi; Maicon, Lucio, Cordoba, Chivu; Cambiasso, Thiago Motta, Zanetti; Stankovic; Pandev, Eto'o.
    • 11:05 Since Leonardo took over at Inter the ailing champions haven't looked back, winning all five games since the Brazilian arrived. Incredibly, a sixth straight win will see them go second in the able, above Roma on goal difference, although Lazio, Napoli and Milan are all set to play later on Sunday. Udinese are no slouches though, and a win for them would keep them in the hunt for a Europa League spot. Serie A table
