Udinese Preview – Will the change in manager lead to a change in fortunes for Udinese?

Defeat to Empoli last weekend means it’s now four games within a win for Udinese who are beginning to slip down the table. It also spelled the end for head coach Luca Gotti who had two years in charge of the club. His assistant Gabriele Cioffi will take charge for this game as the club search for a new permanent manager. They prepare to face the champions in 14th spot but do have a six point cushion between themselves and the bottom three. Incidentally, they finished in 14th place last season and would probably accept a similar campaign once again.

One of the issues for the previous manager was the number of draws his team were involved in. Seven draws from 16 games means just three wins all season. At home that translates to two wins in eight attempts but they are unbeaten in their last four which does give them something to build on heading into this match.


Our betting prediction
Under 2.5 goals
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Tuesday 7 December)

Keeping clean sheets has been a major issue for Udinese so far this season. They have managed only three all season and just one at home since the opening weekend.

At the other end of the pitch it’s a combination of Beto and Gerard Deulofeu who are providing most of the goals. The duo have six and four goals respectively and with Deulofeu having spent some time on loan at Milan he will be desperate to add to that tally.

AC Milan Preview – Can Milan maintain their lead at the top with another away win?

Milan may have exited the Champions League this week but you have always felt that the domestic titles were more important than progress in Europe this season. A top four finish would guarantee them a seat at the top table again next season but they will now sense that they can actually win a first title in a decade with their last success being in 2010/11.

They went top last week with a 2-0 win over Salernitana, giving them a second consecutive win having lost back to back matches to Sassuolo and Fiorentina. Those are their only losses of the league campaign thus far and they will now hope to put a run of wins together.

Milan have been strong on the road, as you would expect from a team sitting top of the table. The defeat in Florence aside, they have won six and drawn the other. They’re also the joint highest away scorers in the division – along with rivals Inter who are only a point below them.

What has been impressive about this group of players is how they share the goals between them. They have had 14 different scorers already in the league with Zlatan leading the way on six goals.

Udinese vs AC Milan Betting Advice

It could barely be a more difficult challenge for Cioffi’s first game in charge, and it’s not what you want when you are taking a team who have not won on their last four. For Milan it’s all about continuing their winning form and attempting to ensure they remain top of the table come the end of this round of fixtures.

Recently this has been a game which has not featured many goals. Five of the last seven games have went under 2.5 goals.


Key Facts – Udinese vs AC Milan Betting Tip

  • This will be the first match in charge for caretaker boss Gabriele Cioffi
  • AC Milan have lost just one of their last 11 away matches in Serie A (winning nine of them)
  • Five of the last seven meetings between the two have had two or fewer goals

Milan have to dust themselves down after the disappointment in midweek and I’m banking on them doing that and continuing their excellent away form domestically.
