AC Milan vs Udinese Best Prediction and Preview
Prediction for AC Milan
On this side of the front line, AC Milan seems to have changed under the guidance of veteran coach Stefano Pioli. Last season, they entered the group competing for the Serie A title and finished in first place on the final day of the season before the pursuit of the same city team - Inter Milan. Compared to last season, the force of this year's San Siro team is equally strong.
This past summer, they have been strengthened by a number of quality signings such as Alessandro Florenzi (from AS Roma), Divock Origi (from Liverpool) or Junior Messias (from Crotone). AC Milan's form before this match is also quite good. Except for the 2-3 loss to ZalaegerzsegTE, the Lombardy team was unbeaten in all four previous matches and of which were 4 victories. Along with a good head-to-head record against Udinese, coach Stefano Pioli's teachers and students are likely to have 3 full points in the opening round.
Prediction for Udinese
Udinese is just an average team in the Italian league. Last season, they only finished in 12th place. More importantly, the Friuli stadium team often performed poorly against AC Milan. In the last 5 times the two teams have competed against each other, the Udine team has not once enjoyed the joy of winning and losing exactly 2 matches and if counted in 3 trips to San Siro alone, they have drawn 2 and lost. first.
Not only that, more than a week ago, coach Andrea Sottil's army had just received a 0-2 defeat against Chelsea and that loss had more or less impact on the psychology of Isaac Success and his teammates. Besides, the absence of Mamadou Coulibaly - who switched to Salernitana last summer also significantly affected the strength of Udinese's midfield.

AC Milan Team News
Zlatan Ibrahimovic went under the knife in May and is expected to be out until 2023, with Sandro Tonali also in a race against the clock to be fit for this one. New recruit Divock Origi may be parachuted straight into the starting line-up, while fans will be itching to see precociuos Belgian sensation Charles De Ketelaere get some minutes on the pitch.
Udinese Team News
If reports are to be believed then Destiny Udogie is nearing a move to Tottenham that will see the young attacking full-back return to the Stadio Friuli on loan. That bodes well for Andrea Sottil, at least in the short term, as the teenage talent has scored the most goals in 2022 across Europe’s top five leagues (five goals). On top of that, he has also been directly involved in six goals in his last six Serie A games (three goals, three assists).
Expected lineups between AC Milan vs Udinese
AC Milan: Maignan, Calabria, Kalulu, Tomori, Hernandez, Bennacer, Tonali, Messias, Diaz, Leao, Rebic.
Udinese: Padelli, Abankwah, Benkovic, Guessand, Ebosele, Pereyra, Jajalo, Bijol, Masina, Success, Beto.
AC Milan vs Udinese: Latest Odds and Betting Tips
AC Milan won six straight games at the end of the last campaign to claim their first Serie A league title in 11 years. Holding off city rivals Inter was an impressive feat but now there is the need to prove the club’s credentials.
It has been a largely successful pre-season for Pioli’s side, winning all but one of their fixtures against the usual mix of opponents. Although there is undoubtedly more business to be done, Milan have also been busy on the transfer market, bringing in some interesting additions to the squad.
Udinese have done well to keep hold of Destiny Udogie, who has been sold to Tottenham Hotspur but will play in Udine this season on loan. The Italy U21 defender impressed a lot of people last year and Udinese fans had feared that he would move to another Serie A club in the summer.
Both games ended in 1-1 draws last season but Le Zebrette would probably be quite happy with a repeat performance on Saturday to kick off the new season. There hasn’t been an away win in this fixture since 2016 – a season when Udinese won both games and Milan only just scraped into the European places.
1 – Under 2.5 total goals scored – 11/10
2 – Milan under 1.5 total goals – 6/4
3 – Draw after 90 minutes – 7/2
4 – Both teams to score – 1/1
5 – A 1-1 draw – 8/1
Udinese barely went past lower-division FeralpiSalo at the start of their Coppa Italia campaign last weekend, beating the rivals 2-1 while registering only three shots on target (seven in total) in the 90 minutes of play.
We have plenty of reasons to back the hosts here. You can go with AC Milan to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the odds of 2.10. Also, Ante Rebic is well worth backing to score anytime after netting two goals in the last weekend’s final pre-season test against Vicenza.
