Inter Milan were not deserving of the 3-0 defeat suffered at the hands of Udinese according to the manager of the Milan club Andrea Stramaccioni. The manager has been able to revitalise Inter Milan in a number of ways, but he was unable to prevent from the team slipping to a 3-0 defeat against Udinese. This defeat almost ends any hope of Inter Milan winning the title this season because they have fallen main points behind the leaders Juventus, who have a game in hand. Hence, the gap could be potentially be as large as 12 points by the end of this weekend.

Even though the score reveals an extremely hard match for Inter Milan, they were certainly in with a chance of winning the match until the red card for Juan. The player was sent off after the 65st minute, while Udinese had taken the lead a few minutes earlier through Di Natale. Inter also conceded two goals in the space of 4 min to give the flattening scoreline for Udinese. Stramaccioni has blamed the refereeing decisions in the match by saying that it has once again cost them valuable points. As a result of this defeat, Inter Milan have fallen to the fifth position in the table.

“We had a good first half and the 3-0 result is unfair and does not reflect the real game. Up until the Juan Jesus red card, it was a totally different match. We certainly aren’t fortunate when it comes to refereeing decisions, as once again today there was an incident. Palacio is a very fair player and he should not have been booked for simulation. Maurizio Domizzi put his hand on his neck and unbalanced him, so for me that is a penalty and a red card,” said Stramaccioni after the Udinese match.
