Udinese v AC Milan Preview, Serie A, Saturday 8th March 2014

Udinese have had a great start to the month of February with three wins on the trot, but that run soon ended as they then lost and drew their last three games of the month. The start to March has also reflected on their run of bad form with a 3 – 0 loss to Cagliari who are now on joint points. This will no doubt be a tough game for Udinese as although AC Milan are not playing that great, they have seen a new spark under manager Clarence Seedorf.

AC Milan will want to get back to winning ways now the challenging game to the Serie A leaders Juventus is over. They did loss the game 2 – 0 which was expected seeing as the Italian Champions are in exceptional form this season. Saturdays game against Udinese will be a must win for manager Seedorf who has so far experienced a mix run of results since taking over recently. A win will see them face Atletico Madrid away from home in better confidence after losing 1 – 0 at home the other week.

Udinese v AC Milan Team News

Udinese Team News:

Udinese will be hoping the clubs top scorer Antonio di Natale will be in top form when facing AC Milan this Saturday, with the Italian veteran currently on 8 goals out of 24 games played this season. Youngster Muriel should be set to start along side him and has so far scored 4 times himself in 16 games played.

AC Milan Team News:

AC Milan’s loan signing Adel Taarabt seems to of made an impact since joining from QPR until the end of the season and the Moroccan has so far scored twice in four games played. As stated a few times in the past it only seems like Mario Balotelli is scoring out of AC Milan’s strike force having scored 10 goals in 18 games in all competitions. The closest striker to him is Brazilian legend Kaka who has 5.

Udinese: L D D D L

AC Milan: L W L W L

AC Milan only slightly have the best form here with two wins and three loses in their last five matches, yet should really be performing a lot better with the current team they have. Udinese are struggling themselves and getting closer to the relegation battle happening just seven points below them.

Udinese v AC Milan Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Saturdays Serie A game with AC Milan verses Udinese is not set up to be a huge spectacle with both sides playing very below par. Milan themselves are under new management seeing Clarence Seedorf come in and try his best. AC Milan you would come to expect to be mounting a serious challenge for the Serie A title yet this year they sit mid table and struggling to put any decent runs together.

Udinese lost at the weekend to Cagliari who are now set on joint points close to the bottom of the table and although Udinese do not need to panic just yet, they should think about how quickly those seven points between them and a relegation battle could creep up on them. With a game against Roma soon to follow Milan I feel it will be the game afterwards against Sassuolo that this side will earn any much needed points.

As for predictions for this game, I personally feel we will see the away side Milan come out victors on the day with a possible Adel Taarabt goal anytime during the game. The other I am going for is a score draw which could prove to be a good choice come Saturday.
