Udinese travel to San Siro in an attempt to overcome AC Milan for the possibility of getting closer to one of the European places. Both teams come from identical 1-1 draws, AC Milan against Inter and Udinese against Chievo Verona. Last year Udinese won both matches against Milan, but Inzaghi will hope to turn his team around and get them to win.
Pippo Inzaghi must do something to motivate his players and start building Milan’s attack around Honda not players that make fans take it to social media and beg for his substitution. Against Inter, Milan took the lead, but were unable to hold onto it, and ended up conceding the equalizer, with their defense being all over the place towards the end of the match. De Jong should be available for selection, while El Shaarawy is one of the players the coach will hope for in the goalscorer market.
Udinese have been making headlines and earning positive buzz due to the fact of getting positive results since the beginning of the season. Many attribute this to the fact that Toto Di Natale decided not to retire at the end of last season, which allowed him to score his 200th Serie A goal. The 37 year old striker is Udinese’s hero, who keeps getting better and better with the year, which prompted Udinese’s president to say “He’s an exceptional player who has become an even better player as the years go on; he’s still improving technically and has been scoring more and more incredible goals.”
Both teams have their fair share of problems, which is why the match promises to be a really close one. Many tip individualities to decide the match considering both teams have the same number of points, and are only separated by the goal difference. Should Inzaghi leave an under-performing striker on the bench, AC Milan’s chances to finally start scoring could get resolved.
