Milan – Udinese
Milan hosts Udinese in a game from the 4th round of the Italian Serie A. The match is going to be played at the legendary Stadio San Siro in Milan.
After spending many, many millions in the summer, Milan started the new season with two wins against Crotone and Cagliari. This made the fans dreaming that the club’s glory days are about to return, but then the team suffered a heavy 1-4 defeat against Lazio in Rome.
Can Milan bounce back from this defeat? Winning against Udinese at San Siro would be a good start.
Udinese started the campaign with two losses and one win. They suffered defeats against Chievo and SPAL, while their only win came against Genoa in the last round.
Milan have a lot of new players in their team and it’s going to be needed some time before seeing them gel and start functioning as a unit. Most probably we are going to see a transition season for Milan, before start witnessing the true strenght of this team. The game against Lazio showed us exactly this – the Rossoneri have potential, but they need time to build a team.
Let’s have a look at the team news before the game.
Milan’s manager Vincenzo Montella can’t use the injured Andrea Conti, while the defender Gabriel Paletta is doubtful for the match. All other players of Milan are healthy and ready to play.
Udinese can’t use the suspended Giuseppe Pezzella, while Silvan Widmer is still injured until the end of the month. Assane Gnoukouri remains sidelined with heart problems, so nobody knows when he’s going to return on the pitch. The good news come from the recovery of Stipe Perica, who is once again ready to play.
Will Milan get back on the winning ways or Udinese is going to prove that they are a tough team to play against? Let’s see!
