Udinese vs AC Milan Prediction & Match Preview

Steffen Schmidt - March 16, 2023

Udinese vs AC Milan
Italian Serie A
Date: 18 March 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Dacia Arena (Udine).

AC Milan made it to the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal by eliminating Tottenham 1-0 on aggregate over two legs.

However, they have not been as successful in the domestic league of late, claiming just one point in the previous two Serie A rounds.

This negative run dropped the reigning champions to the fourth position in the league table. The top-four finish is now in jeopardize for I Rossoneri who are only one point above fifth-placed Roma.

Stefano Pioli’s men disappointed their fans once again on Monday by playing only a 1-1 draw at home to the likes of Salernitana.

AC Milan will thus desperately want to return to winning ways on Saturday evening when they visit Udinese in one of the most exciting games of Matchday No 27 in Serie A.

Udinese have been very tough to break down of late and the visitors may struggle to create chances this weekend at Dacia Arena.

Andrea Sottil’s men kept their net untouched in each of the previous two league games against Atalanta and Empoli.

Rodrigo Becao made the difference in their favor seven days ago against Empoli on the road (a 1-0 win).

Also, it is worth mentioning that Udinese have only lost two of twelve league matches on the home patch since the beginning of the season. Will they cause problems to I Rossoneri on Saturday?

Udinese vs AC Milan Head-to-head

  • AC Milan have dominated this matchup historically but they just lead the H2H tie by 2 wins in clashes in Udine only.
  • We’ve seen a 1-1 draw in three successive head to head encounters between these rivals before this season’s 4-2 win for AC Milan in August last year at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
  • Both teams scored in each of the previous six head to head affairs.

Udinese vs AC Milan Prediction

Udinese have shown great defensive displays in the last couple of games. They have lost just two home outings since the start of the season.

We see merit in backing the hosts not to lose at the 1.66 odds. The Under 2.5 goals FT pick looks decent as well at the 1.80 odds knowing how poor AC Milan have been offensively in recent matches.

  • Udinese to Win or Draw @ 1.66 (4/6)
