'Di Natale to net against Arsenal'

Antonio Di Natale will score for Udinese in tonight's Champions League qualifier at Arsenal, says Andrea Sottil.

The former Bianconero defender made the prediction during an interview with Radio Sportiva on Tuesday.

"Di Natale is an extraordinary player," he noted. "He has decided to end his career in Udine and he has nothing to envy from Alexis Sanchez.

"He'll ripple the net again this evening."

Udinese will of course be without Sanchez after he joined Barcelona, the same club who netted Cesc Fabregas from the London outfit yesterday.

"Both sides have lost important pieces," the ex-stopper continued. "Udinese will be very motivated, but Arsenal will be favourites.

"Tonight's game is the reward for all the serious work undertaken by this club.

"To take a club from a city of 120,000 people into the Champions League against Arsenal is an enormous achievement."
