Maurizio Domizzi is still targeting European qualification with Udinese this season, but he knows it will be tough.
The Stadio Friuli outfit are ninth in the table and seven points behind the last remaining Europa League spot.
“Getting into Europe is going to be difficult this year,” the defender noted. “There are teams ahead of us who are to be feared for real.
“However, everything is still possible. Our goal has to be to take one Sunday at a time and try to climb up as many positions as we can.”
Udinese, who drew 0-0 with Napoli on Monday, are next in action at Pescara where they will be looking for only their third away win of the season.
