May 4 (Reuters) - Inter Milan risk being dragged into a six-way battle for Champions League qualification after being held to their third consecutive Serie A draw with a 0-0 stalemate at relegation-threatened Udinese on Saturday.
Luciano Spalletti’s side occupy third place but a tight-knit group of five teams below them could narrow the gap by the end of the weekend.
The Milanese club are on 63 points with three rounds remaining but Atalanta (59), AS Roma (58), AC Milan (56) and Lazio (55) are yet to play this weekend while Torino are also lingering on 57 points after their draw with Juventus on Friday.
Udinese remain in 17th place on 34 points, five clear of Empoli below them, who face Fiorentina in a Tuscan derby on Sunday. (Reporting by Alasdair Mackenzie Editing by Christian Radnedge)
