AC Milan vs Udinese
Italy – Serie A
Date: Tuesday, 2nd April 2019
Kick-off at 18.00 UK/ 19.00 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (San Siro) (Milan).
AC Milan is slowly trying to obtain the throne they once enjoyed in Italian as well as European football. Under inspirational coach Gennaro Gattuso, they have climbed to the top-tier of the league, and are furiously trying to lock down a Champions League spot. The fact that archrivals Inter is higher in the table might be bothering them, but for now, they have to deal with the challenge of Lazio, Atalanta, and Roma from below.
Udinese is trying to run from the relegation line fast catching up to them. They hold just a three-point surplus as of now, and Bologna really is threatening to jump above them with three league wins in a row. Milan will try to take advantage of this pressure Udinese is under right now.

AC Milan vs Udinese Prediction
Milan won four of the last five home ties and was unbeaten in 20 of their last 24 such fixtures. They were also unvanquished in 12 of their last 15 overall ties. Importantly, they are trying to ensure a top-four spot, and thus a Champions League spot, while furiously being pursued by in-form Lazio, Roma, Atalanta, etc. Milan simply doesn’t have the luxury to relax and will have to take advantage of their home status.
Udinese is winless in their last ten away ties and was winless in 14 of their last 15 as well. Their lone win came against the worst team in the league, Chievo. Moreover, they are under massive pressure due to the relegation battle and are on the road against AC Milan. Expect a comfortable home win.
The reverse fixture for this tie saw Milan keeping a clean sheet, and they were away from home then. Also, Milan kept their nets clean of goals in five of their last six home ties, while Udinese failed to score in five of their last seven road trips. Expect AC Milan to keep a clean sheet.
