This weekend sees the return of Serie A action with Udinese playing an important match at the San Siro stadium on Saturday against Stefano Pioli‘s AC Milan team. Udinese has not played at its greatest level this campaign and is now in 17th spot in the Serie A table. The away team will need to put in a lot of effort to win this game after suffering a crushing 2-1 loss to Cagliari during the Coppa Italia earlier in the week. On the other side, AC Milan has been playing well so far and is now in 3rd position in the league standings. After being thwarted to a 2-2 tie by Napoli in their previous encounter, the Rossoneri will want to step it up this coming weekend.
Milan’s 2-2 draw with Napoli may have felt like 2 points lost in the wake of two depressing losses the week before, as Olivier Giroud‘s first-half double placed them ahead at Stadio Maradona last Sunday. After Pierre Kalulu left the game due to injury and was replaced by the unproven Marco Pellegrino, Stefano Pioli’s already thin lineup was further weakened. In the second half, Napoli came charging back to steal a point from a thrilling match between the previous two Scudetto champions.
Although Udinese defeated Milan 3-1 earlier this year to earn the inaugural Serie A victory over the Milanese team in 7 meetings, it appears that the Fruili team will have a difficult task this weekend to duplicate that victory. The Bianconeri have proven unable to improve under new management, and despite Gabriele Cioffi‘s latest comeback to the team after Andrea Sottil‘s dismissal, they are still without their initial league win of the 2023–24 season after a 1-1 tie against Monza last week. After that outcome, Udinese became just one of three clubs in history to draw 7 or more of their opening ten Serie A games this century. Prior to traveling to Milan on Saturday, they had already drawn 4 of their previous 5 away games this year.
