Mehdi Benatia admits he's enjoying Udinese's push for Champions League qualification this season.

Udinese are unbeaten in 13 games and have surged into the Champions League spots.

He said: "We have many quality players, then I look at the fixture list and think we can achieve great things together.

"This weekend we face Lecce, so it will be important to make the most of the pace and quality of our front line.

"We haven't conceded in seven games and, if we managed to defend Samir Handanovic's net for another 90 minutes, I think our chances of victory would improve massively."
