    Time:90'
    • Udinese
    • Sampdoria
    • 90+4' Denis's shot is deflected over the bar by Martinez, but it doesn't matter. All over. Udinese have picked up three points. A deserved success.
    • 89' Di Natale well wrapped up on the touchline. Freezing night, but he has obviously warmed the home fans this evening.
    • 88' Going to be four minutes added to this match.
    • 87' Macheda and Koman can't combine in the Sampdoria box and Udinese can break at speed.
    • 86' Udinese will be just a point behind fourth-placed Lazio with this win. Really are making a charge for a Champions League spot.
    • 85' Sanchez is guilty of a bit of foul play as he juggles the ball with his hands. Free-kick to Sampdoria.
    • 84' Armero leaves the action to be replaced by Maurizio Domizzi.
    • 83' Ziegler forced to do a bit of defending as the match approaches its conclusion. Going to be another change for the home team.
    • 82' Sanchez fires in a shot. Not enough power on it as Curci dives to make the save.
    • 81' Udinese have had 11 shots at goal compared to 10 by Sampdoria. Nothing in the stats, but the home side have those two goals.
    • 79' Udinese keeping the ball at the back. Guberti has his pocket picked as he tries to engineer a path to goal.
    • 78' Mannini so unlucky to see a shot crack back off the bar. That was a terrific effort from 25 yards out! How did that stay out.
    • 76' Macheda's header is wide of the goal from Guberti's cross. Time really running out for the visiting side.
    • 75' Curci is out of his area to whack the ball away with Sanchez lurking.
    • 74' Off goes Abdi and on comes Giampiero Pinzi.
    • 73' Another change coming here for Udinese.
    • 72' Biabiany is tackled by Zapata as he tries to race clear. The home side side have enough bodies back.
    • 71' Palombo with the ball, but Udinese break up the attack. Armero and Asamoah keep the ball. Sanchez tries a little pass through the middle, but Lucchini holds firm for the visitors.
    • 70' Dessena is hooked. On comes Mannini.
    • 69' Sanchez showing some terrific skill. He is caught by Ziegler. A free-kick to Udinese, but Abdi's shot is wide of the goal.
    • 68' Macheda tries a little pass through the heart of the home defence, but Zapata is quick to intercept.
    • 67' Maccarone is going to depart here to be replaced by Federico Macheda.
    • 66' Great stop by Belardi as he dives to his left to keep out a shot by Guberti. Fine agile stop.
    • 65' Asamoah to Sanchez, but his chip into the box is taken by Curci.
    • 64' Denis takes over from Di Natale, who is given a standing ovation as he heads for the bench.
    • 63' Palombo's shot from distance is blocked from Koman's pass. The visitors really require a response. Their need is pressing.
    • 62' Going to be another change coming here. This time for Udinese.
    • 61' Some more positive attacking play by the visiting side. They continue to cut loose through Di Natale and Sanchez. A third goal would surely bury Sampdoria.

    • 59' Benatia is brought down by Maccarone as Udinese search for a third goal.
    • 58' Stefano Guberti replaces Fernando Tissone for the visiting side.
    • 57' Abdi has been booked for a late foul on Koman. Can have no complaints about that.
    • 56' Lucchini is fouled by Armero in the visiting half, and Sampdoria can build again from the back.
    • 55' Koman just fails to connect with a long ball into the Udinese box. Belardi grateful to collect that ball.
    • 54' Armero seemed to bring down Dessena there, but the referee said no penalty. That looked a clear penalty.
    • 53' Really bright play from Sampdoria. Biabiany is back on the park, but there is a change coming here.
    • 52' Ziegler has a go from distance. Fine swerving shot from distance, but Belardi throws himself at the ball. Palms that shot over the bar.
    • 51' Palombo is lining up this free-kick from 25 yards out.
    • 50' The medics are are only to have a look at the Sampdoria striker after that foul by Coda.
    • 49' Ziegler earns a free-kick after he is fouled by Sanchez. Meanwhile, Biabiany is in a spot of bother here.
    • 48' Di Natale misplaces a pass at the outset of the second period. He's not being doing much of that this evening. He and Sanchez have been a real handful.
    • 47' Di Natale whacks wide of goal at one end while Koman hits over at the other. Bright start to the second period.
    • 46' So off we go for the second half. Long way back for Sampdoria.
    • 45+2' Great chance to make it three on the break! Di Natale slips in Isla, but he hammers a shot over the bar before Di Natale chips over seconds later. There goes the whistle! Fine first half for the home team.

    • 43' Going to be two minutes added to the half.
    • 42' Volta has been booked for a late challenge. All a bit frustrating for Sampdoria at the moment.
    • 41' Maccarone is decked by Benatia. Late foul, but Sampdoria can't take advantage.
    • 40' Di Natale has been booked for celebrating. He lost his top after the goal and the referee is not happy with that. Sampdoria looking dazed at the moment.
    • 39' Udinese fans with massive placards of their idol Di Natale around the stadium. They are in party mood.
    • 37' That is his 100th goal in Serie A. Lovely throughball from Sanchez. Terrific finish.
    • 36' GOAL FOR UDINESE! A second goal of the day for Di Natale as he races through the middle to send the ball under Curci. The home side hold a 2-0 lead.
    • 35' Palombo hammers in the free-kick from distance. Easy enough stop for Belardi in the home goal as he collects at the second attempt.
    • 34' Isla fouls Biabiany. Free-kick to the visitors.
    • 33' Biabiany is grounded by Isla, but Volta just fails to connect with the header from the free-kick as Udinese survive.
    • 32' Adbi is deprived space by Maccarone, who races back to pressurise the ball. Sampdoria have the ball.
    • 31' Tissone guilty of foul play on Asamoah. Free-kick taken by Di Natale, but no takers.
    • 30' Palombo throws a testing high ball towards goal that Belardi studies as it lands on top of his net.
    • 29' Heading for the first half-hour mark. Sampdoria enjoying a bright spell of possession in the last few moments.
    • 28' Zapata sticking to Maccarone like glue at the other end. Dangerous moments for Udinese, but they see it out. Goalkick to the home side.
    • 27' Offside decision goes against Di Natale.
    • 26' Super play by Di Natale! He accepts the pass from Armero. Ball across goal but no takers. Udinese good for this 1-0 lead.
    • 25' Ziegler comes up to take a corner for Sampdoria. In comes the corner. Maccarone tries to connect before Vola hooks the ball over.
    • 24' Armero slides a cross into the area. Too much pace on that cross. The ball evades the black and white shirts.
    • 22' Abdi making a dash down a flank. Whacks a cross over, but the ball was always spinning wide of his right foot.
    • 21' Di Natale is down and needing a bit of treatment.
    • 20' Asamoah delivers a cross into the heart of the area. Curci comes out to collect. Sampdoria living dangerously.
    • 19' Sanchez at the heart of all Udinese's attacking move. Really is giving Sampdoria a tough evening so far.
    • 18' Think Sampdoria are arguing that the goak was offside. Not too sure about that. Udinese now with a massive 68% of possession.
    • 17' Lucchini joining the attack. Throws over a cross from out wide, but an easy take for Belardi.
    • 16' That was awful marking from Sampdoria, who continue to protest about something. Not sure what they are upset about. Looked a legitimate goal.
    • 15' GOAL FOR UDINESE! Lovely goal. Di Natale with the free-kick and Sanchez nods unmarked beyond Curci in the visiting goal.
    • 13' Lucchini is booked for a crude late tackle on Sanchez. Deservedly so.
    • 12' Some lovely skills being displaed by Sanchez. Just crowded out there as he tried to open up the visitors.
    • 10' Great defending by Volta as he dashed back to make a timely tackle on Di Natale. Superb tackle.
    • 9' Asamoah takes a tumble out wide. Free-kick to the home team, but comes to nothing as Curci comes out to collect the cross with some ease.
    • 8' Biabiany shows his skills as he cuts in from the flank. Fine shot at goal, but just into the side netting. That contained some power.
    • 7' Dessena has a go from distance, but straight at Belardi in the home goal.
    • 6' Udinese enjoying 68% of possession. Really eager to pile bodies forward.
    • 5' Great shot by Armero! That contained some power but a decent stop by Curci in the visiting goal.
    • 4' Udinese aiming to move into fifth spot in the table with a win here, a point behind Lazio. Samp with plenty of bodies behind the ball.
    • 3' Aremero throws a lovely cross into the area, but Sampdoria scramble the ball clear.
    • 2' Sampdoria on the attack early on. Strong play by the home player Asamoah to protect the ball outside his own box. Here come Udinese.
    • 1' So we are off and running in this match.
