Antonio Di Natale has warned Udinese that “against Fiorentina and Lazio we're gambling with nine months of hard work.”
The Friulani are in fifth place, but just one point adrift of the Champions League qualifying spots.
“This weekend in Florence will be a very important game for us. Against Fiorentina and Lazio we're gambling with nine months of hard work,” said the Capocannoniere.
“Roma are back in the race for fourth too now, so you'll see that from here to the end the Giallorossi will make very few mistakes.”
Udinese suffered a shock home defeat to Parma, but travel to the Stadio Franchi without the injured Alexis Sanchez and suspended Gokhan Inler and Pablo Armero.
“We're not looking for excuses, as it's not the first time we've had problems. We had even worse difficulties at Napoli, but we won that game.”
