The hosts will be eager to steady the ship following two defeats in a row for the  I Rossoneri.

Defeats to rivals Inter Milan as well as a disappointing loss to Sampdoria has seen Milan's ten-game unbeaten run come to a crashing end.

Gennaro Gattuso's side currently sit in fourth spot in Serie A as they look to strengthen their spot in the top-four with a win.

Udinese, on the other hand, sit just three points ahead of the relegation zone in 16th spot.

However, three wins in their last five games has seen the Serie A outfit drift away from the drop zone as they look to climb up to a mid-table finish.

A 2-0 win against Genoa last time out saw Udinese win arguably against the run of play, but Igor Tudor knows his side will have to grind out wins if they are to stay in Italy's top-flight.

Team News

The hosts only have the one injury worry with Giacamo Bonaventura being the only player sidelined.

Udinese, on the other hand, have a whole host of injury worries with Valon Behrami, Antonin Barak, Emmanuel Badu, Emil Halfredsson and Marco D'Alessandro all being forced to miss out.

Potential AC Milan Starting XI: Donnarumma, Calabria, Romagnoli, Musacchio, Rodriguez, Bakayoko, Biglia, Paqueta, Suso, Calhanoglu, Piatek. ​

Potential Udinese Starting XI: ​Musso, Larsen, Troost-Ekong, De Maio, Zeegelaar, Sandro, Fofana, Mandragora, Pussetto, De Paul, Okaka

Head To Head

  • AC Milan 8, Draws 5, Udinese 6
  • AC Milan won the reverse fixture 1-0.

Key Stats & Facts

  • AC Milan have only tasted defeat in three of their 15 home league games this season.
  • Udinese have managed one win on their travels in Serie A this season.
  • The visitors have only scored 11 away goals in the league this season.

Betting Odds

  • AC Milan 1/2
  • Draw 17/5
  • Udinese 15/2

The Verdict

Despite Udinese fighting for their lives and having some decent results in recent weeks, Milan should be confident of all three points as they look to establish themselves in the top-four.

Krzysztof Piatek will be looking to add to his tally of 27 goals in all competitions this season and he will be keen to exploit a weak defence.

However, Udinese knows that they need to carry on their good form in order to stay up and a win here would be massive for their survival hopes.
