The Serie A continues later today with three matches slated as defending champions Inter Milan, Fiorentina and Udinese in action.

Title-chasing Inter are away to Bologna while two Nigerians will be at the Stadio Artemio Franchi in Firenze where Fiorentina host Udinese in one of three matchday 34 matches.

The duo of Destiny Udogie and Isaac Success were on target the last time Udinese were in action in the league.

Udogie, who has his heart set on playing for Italy, opened the scoring, assisted by his compatriot, Success, who netted the second goal to give their club a 2-1 lead

However, they were eventually denied a win and three points by Bologna substitute Nicola Sansone in the entertaining 2-2 draw.

That performance from former Watford man, Success, saw him take his goal contributions to three (one goal and two assists) in the last two matches for Udinese.

The 12th-place team will be hoping that their Nigerian stars can help them return to winning ways after one loss and a draw in their last games.

Success, 26, seems to finally be enjoying his football again after finding his form again.

He has assisted seven and scored two goals in just nine starts, while Udogie has three goals and one assist in 30 games for Udinese in the Serie A.
