The mood in the two camps could scarcely be more different going into this match, and Al Hain-Cole expects the Zebrette to book their European place with victory at the San SiroInter say goodbye to a miserable season on Sunday, when they play host to an Udinese side looking to secure a top five finish and Europa League football.
Such is their poor form, the hosts are outsiders at 12/5 (3.40) with William Hill to pick up just their third win in 11 Serie A matches, having lost seven games in that period.
In contrast, Franceso Guidolin's men are currently enjoying a seven-match winning streak, and are available at 19/20 (1.95) to extend that run to eight at the San Siro.
There have been no draws between these sides in their last nine encounters, but you can get odds of 5/2 (3.50) on them sharing the spoils for the first time in five years in this one.
After such a promising start to his managerial career, Andrea Stramaccioni's days seem to be numbered with the Nerazzurri thanks to a run of nine defeats in 13 games that saw the team crash out of the Europa League and slip into mid-table.
The mood will be sombre at San Siro on Sunday, and it is hard to see the hosts offering much resistance against a rampant visiting team who have the bit between their teeth in their bid to secure European football for next season.
The Zebrette ran out convincing 3-0 winners when these sides met at the Stadio Friuli in January, and offer decent value at 19/20 (1.95) to complete the double in Milan.
One shining light in Inter's dire end to the season has been Ricky Alvarez, who finally seems to be fulfilling his potential since snubbing a loan move back to his native Argentina in January.
The skilful playmaker has scored five goals in his last eight games, and his role as designated penalty taker makes him a potentially lucrative selection at 11/4 (3.75) to score anytime against Udinese.
