Match Preview

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.
