thumbnail Hello,

The Stadio Friuli outfit have impressed this season and currently sit in third place in the Serie A standings, but know they are in for a difficult game at the Giuseppe Meazza

Udinese coach Francesco Guidolin has stated that his side must play "the perfect game" if they are to win against Inter on Saturday, and admits that his team need to improve their away form.

The Stadio Friuli outfit are currently in third place in the Serie A standings, and are competing to finish in the Champions League places for the second season in succession.

Despite the fact that the Giuseppe Meazza team have had a below-par campaign so far, the 56-year-old is wary of the threat posed by Claudio Ranieri's men.

"It's a tough match against a team that are picking up and are made up of many champions," the ex-Parma boss told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"They have quality players who can score goals and change the face of the game at any moment.

"So we have to play the perfect game without making mistakes, since these incidents often decide games," he stated.

Despite excellent results in Udine, last year's fourth-placed finishers have struggled on the road, something that Guidolin is keen to address.

"We know we must do better away from home and try to be more sharp and cynical; we will try to work to ensure that our team is able to do well and improve," he continued.

"I hope that tomorrow will be better and that we can achieve a positive result, but we are playing a very difficult team."

Kick-off at San Siro is at 20.45CET.
