Udinese moved into a tie for eighth in Serie A with a 2-0 win at Sampdoria on Monday.

Brazilian defender Danilo put Udinese ahead in the 17th minute with a header, and captain Antonio Di Natale doubled the lead in the 28th after dribbling by the goalkeeper and shooting into an empty net.

Udinese goalkeeper Zeljko Brkic blocked a questionable penalty from Sampdoria forward Nicola Pozzi in the 64th.

Udinese and Catania are each 16 points behind Italian league leader Juventus. Sampdoria is only three points above the relegation zone in 13th.

Later, Lazio had a chance to move within a point of the Champions League places with a win at Bologna.
