Udinese vs. Milan Predictions and Preview
This is a clash between two sides whose recent league form could hardly be more contrasting.
In the last five Serie A matchdays, Udinese have collected just one point while Milan have won 12 – with a derby day defeat at Inter the only blotch.
It’s a concerning run of form for the home team, who have conceded two or more goals in each of their last five games and will be vulnerable to the attacking threats of the Rossoneri.
The Milanese giants have netted a total of 12 goals in their four most recent victories in an impressive display of firepower.
It is not surprising that it is the away side who are favourites to win this encounter at odds of 10/11, with Udinese priced at 16/5 and the draw available at 5/2.
These fixtures tend to produce few goals with only 11 going in across the last five meetings, so under 2.5 goals at 4/5 appears to be a solid bet with under 1.5 at 5/2.
A ‘double chance’ on Udinese to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 17/20 while a Milan win/draw outcome is at 2/9.
If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 9/4.
One to watch for Udinese: Kevin Lasagna is the dangerman for the hosts in this clash. The 26-year-old will be keen to add to the two league goals he has accumulated this season and is priced at 3/1 to find the net for the second game in succession.
One to watch for Milan: Gonzalo Higuain has netted 116 Serie A goals since joining Napoli in 2013, and is now at Milan – six goals this season– following a spell at Juventus. Odds of him to make it goal number seven in Udine are at 11/8.
Long shot: These two sides have not shared a goalless encounter since May 2011 but the hosts have failed to find the back of the net in two of their last three games. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are available at 9/1.
