Milan: Udinese became provisional leaders of Serie A on Sunday after beating Inter Milan 3-1 to claim their fifth win in a row.

Andrea Sottil’s surprise package continued their impressive start to the season after Milan Skriniar’s 22nd-minute own goal and late headers from Jaka Bijol and Tolgay Arslan earned them the three points.

Udinese are two points ahead of Napoli, Atalanta, and AC Milan after bouncing back from Nicolo Barella’s superb early free-kick opener for Inter.

Champions Milan host Napoli at the San Siro in the weekend’s headline match, while Atalanta head to fifth-placed Roma hoping to maintain their unbeaten record.

Inter sit four points off the pace in sixth after their third league defeat of what has been a difficult opening few weeks of the season.
