Maurizio Domizzi reveals how Francesco Guidolin prepared Udinese for tonight's Champions League decider against Milan.
The Friulani need only a point to be sure of a fourth-place finish, although Lazio are still in the race.
“This has felt like a very long week and the fact we're playing on Sunday night just makes it seem even longer,” said Udinese defender Domizzi.
“We can't wait to get out there. Are we afraid? Only to the right degree, as you need a little healthy concern in decisive moments. There is a great deal at stake and this is our only chance. There won't be any more time after this to make up for mistakes.”
Milan have already won the Scudetto and have nothing more to play for, but have pledged not to make it easy.
“The club may be looking to the future, but not the players. They are experienced and always want to win every game,” continued Domizzi.
“Guidolin told us to have faith in ourselves, our work and what he have always done. Many of my teammates have probably had the most important season of their careers, but experience counts more in the long-term than in a one-off match.
“We are fortunate to have recovered from injuries and do not have any bans, so our conditions for this game are ideal.”
