European football is looking a likely prospect for victorious Udinese.
Udinese gave their chances of European football for next season an almighty boost with a 3-1 victory over struggling Sampdoria in Serie A.
A brace from Antonio Di Natale and a late goal for Luis Muriel helped seal the points for the home side.
The hosts are now just four points behind fourth placed Fiorentina after they lost to Roma on Saturday, who themselves are only one point ahead of Udinese.
For Sampdoria there were glimmers of hope after going in 1-1 at half-time when Eder cancelled out Di Natale’s first goal.
Yet it was not to be and with just three games left the away team could get dragged into a relegation battle.
