Udinese defender Maurizio Domizzi believes that Antonio Di Natale will return to scoring ways very soon.
The striker has been without a goal in his last nine appearances, having missed a penalty in the Zebrette's 0-0 draw with Bologna last Sunday.
But the 32-year-old centre-back has insisted that the Italy international will regain form before the end of the campaign, whilst also commenting on their quest for a Europa League place next term.
“Toto's form is only temporary,” he told a Press conference. “If he had scored that penalty, we would have forgotten this period.
“This year he will be very close to another 20-goal season. And I am ready to bet that he will probably reach the landmark.
“Europe has always been special for us. Our schedule is quite good, but it will be difficult.
“The strength and organization of our team means that it's not impossible.”
Udinese currently sit in ninth position, eight points off of Inter in fifth. They face Chievo this Sunday.
