Line-ups: Inter-Udinese

Inter can move to within a point of fourth place tonight, but first have to get past Udinese.

It kicks off at San Siro at 19.45 GMT, click here for a match preview.

This is the final game in Serie A Week 30 and gives the Nerazzurri a chance to consolidate fifth position and close to one point from Fiorentina in fourth.

Walter Mazzarri’s men also need a boost for their confidence following a 2-1 home defeat to Atalanta on Sunday.

Juan Jesus returns from his three-match ban to bolster the defence, while Walter Samuel is also picked after a couple of games on the bench.

Yuto Nagatomo has shaken off that injury to start on the left with Mauro Icardi and Rodrigo Palacio again partnered up front.

Samir Handanovic takes on his former club and his heir, 17-year-old Simone Scuffet.

Udinese make the trip without the suspended Dusan Basta, so Gabriel Silva and Roberto Pereyra both start with Emmanuel Badu in central midfield.

Bruno Fernandes is the support for Colombian international Luis Muriel, as Antonio Di Natale and Gianpiero Pinzi are rested for the first half.
