After failing to take advantage of the other Champions League qualification challengers dropping points last weekend, Udinese vs AC Milan on Matchday 27 of the 2022/23 Serie A campaign is another chance for the Rossoneri to save a faltering domestic season.
With Inter, AS Roma and Atalanta all losing, and Lazio picking up just one point against Bologna, the reigning Serie A champions threw away a 1-0 lead to draw against Salernitana at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Monday night, missing the chance to move ahead of the Biancocelesti into third.
Udinese vs AC Milan: Team news and predicted line-ups
Ex-Milan attacker Gerard Deulofeu remains on the Udinese sidelines and Enzo Ebosse is unlikely to return from a knee injury, but coach Andrea Sottil will have the rest of his squad to select from as they look to remain unbeaten for a fourth consecutive game.
Fans of ageing strikers will have a conflict of emotions ahead of the game in Udine, as the suspension of Olivier Giroud for an accumulation of yellow cards could cause Milan coach Stefano Pioli to hand a start to Zlatan Ibrahimovic. However, the Swede’s struggles from the bench against Salernitana, could mean Divock Origi gets the nod.
Udinese predicted XI vs AC Milan (3-5-2): Silvestri; Becao, Bijol, Perez; Ehizibue, Pereyra, Walace, Lovric, Udogie; Beto, Success.
AC Milan predicted XI vs Udinese (3-4-2-1): Maignan; Kalulu, Thiaw, Tomori; Saelemaekers, Tonali, Bennacer, Hernandez; Diaz, Leao; Ibrahimovic.
