Match Result: 1:1 WIN!!!
|Udinese welcome AC Milan to the Dacia Arena for this round 23 Serie A (SA) game in a vitally important clash for both clubs if they want to challenge for a European place. Just two points separate the sides in the table.|
|Hosts Udinese have had a decent season so far in SA and find themselves in ninth ahead of the round after last week’s 1-0 win at Genoa, with just one loss from their last nine league games (W6, D2, L1).|
|Bianconeri Friuliani have had mixed fortunes at home, winning five and losing five while drawing one. Against Milan at home they have won four of the last five!|
|Milan coach Gennaro Gattuso’s very individual man-management style is finally starting to pay off for the Rossoneri, exemplified by the gutsy 2-1 win over an in-form Lazio last weekend.|
|That win marked Milan’s third straight SA victory, a run that has seen them rise to seventh in the table in what has been a disappointing season so far.|
|Players to watch: With no prolific striker up front, Milan have relied on midfielder Suso to chip in with goals (five) and assists (three). Will he come to the fore in this one?|
|Czech duo Antonin Barak (six goals, two assists) and Jakub Jankto (three goals, four assists) represent two of Udinese’s most dangerous assets. Could it be a case of Czech mate for Udinese?|
|Stat attack: This will be the 86th meeting between the sides, with Milan victorious in 37 to Udinese’s 16. The last two games between the sides ended 2-1 to the home side, including the reverse fixture this season.|
|It’s been 40 games since Udinese last registered a 0-0 draw in all competitions.|
|Just under 73% of Milan’s away SA games this season have ended with over 2.5 goals and five of the last six at Udinese between the sides have also seen the mark achieved.|
