ROME (AP) -Italy forward Antonio Di Natale scored twice and Udinese beat 10-man Inter Milan 3-0 Sunday to damage the Nerazzurri's waning chances of catching Serie A leader Juventus, as the Italian league got back to full gear after the holiday break.

Di Natale put Udinese ahead in the 63rd minute at Udinese's Stadio Friuli by finishing off a swift counterattack as Inter's defense struggled to keep up.

Two minutes later, Inter defender Juan picked up his second yellow card, and Colombia forward Luis Muriel doubled the lead in the 75th with a similar score.

Di Natale added another in the 79th from the center of the area - his 12th of the season - as defenders Walter Samuel and Esteban Cambiasso again couldn't intervene.

Inter remained nine points behind Juventus.
