Francesco Guidolin assures Antonio Di Natale’s goal drought “is not a problem,” as Udinese take on Torino.
The veteran hitman has not found the net since a 3-1 win over Udinese on January 13.
“It is not a problem,” said the Coach. “I can only imagine he’d be a little irritable about it, because he has accustomed himself and all of us to scoring so regularly.
“I think the stomach bug he suffered from a few weeks ago debilitated him a bit. Nowadays three weeks fly by.
“Torino are in a positive period of form, especially away from home, so there are all the ingredients for it to be a difficult game for us.
“We need to be concentrated in every game and add points to our tally.”
Udinese squad for Torino: Padelli, Pawlowski, Scuffet; Angella, Basta, Benatia, Domizzi, Heurtaux, Gabriel Silva, Pasquale; Allan, Campos Toro, Faraoni, Merkel, Pereyra, Pinzi, Rodriguez; Di Natale, Maicosuel, Muriel, Ranegie, Zielinski
