Milan vs. Udinese Tips, Preview and Predictions

Milan Udinese Eurotips New

AC Milan must bounce back from the disappointment of failing to beat Serie A’s bottom club when they host Udinese on Friday night. The Rossoneri could only draw with relegation favourites Salernitana on Saturday despite taking an early lead, although they weren’t fully punished for that slip-up. 

Where and when: San Siro – 25 February, kick-off 17:45

Last time: Milan needed an injury time equaliser from Zlatan Ibrahimovic to snatch a 1-1 draw at the Dacia Arena in December. 

Milan v Udinese Predictions and Preview

Udinese may be struggling down in 16th place in the Serie A table, but the Bianconeri won’t be a pushover for Milan this weekend. The Friulani have come within moments of beating the Rossoneri in each of the last two meetings between the clubs, after Franck Kessie’s 97th-minute penalty salvaged a last-gasp 1-1 draw for Stefano Pioli’s side in last season’s corresponding fixture at San Siro. 

The Serie A leaders should’ve banked three points with ease against Salernitana at the weekend, but again had to come from behind to rescue a draw. Thankfully for them, title rivals Inter went down 2-0 at home to Sassuolo the following day, limiting the damage of that frustrating result. 

Despite that disappointment, the hosts enter this Milan v Udinese preview unbeaten in five and with five wins from their last eight in the league. Udinese, on the other hand, have only won one of their last six Serie A fixtures. The Bianconeri have lost three of those games to Atalanta, Juventus and Verona, conceding 12 goals in the process. This could be a long afternoon for the visitors. 

Milan vs. Udinese full time result odds

There’s no chance of Ibrahimovic being the hero once again this weekend, as the Swedish striker remains sidelined with an Achilles injury. He should be back early next month. Interim Udinese coach Gabriele Cioffi, meanwhile, has a fully-fit squad to choose from heading into this tough trip to Lombardy. 

Milan vs. Udinese both teams to score odds

Eleven of the last 14 meetings between these clubs have seen both teams score, including each of the last four. Milan have won two of those four, making a home win and BTTS bet promising at 9/4. Both of those Rossoneri victories were by a single goal, with the same outcome this weekend priced at 13/5

Milan vs. Udinese correct score odds

As we’re backing the Diavolo to win by one goal with both teams scoring, there are two scorelines that immediately jump out. Milan beat Udinese 3-2 at San Siro the season before last, with the same result here available at 28/1. The Rossoneri followed that up with a 2-1 triumph at the Dacia Arena in the reverse fixture, and a repeat of that scoreline on Friday is 8/1

Milan vs. Udinese first goalscorer odds

With Ibrahimovic still unavailable, derby hero Olivier Giroud will lead the Rossoneri line once again this weekend. The Frenchman is the favourite to open the scoring in these Milan v Udinese tips, while he is 30/1 to strike first in a 2-1 home win. If you go with a 3-2 Giroud scorecast, those odds rise to 93/1
