In that game, Udinese had 38% of the possession and 4 of their 14 attempts on goal were successful. Rodrigo Beco was the lone scorer for Udinese (54′). Empoli attempted 17 attempts on goal, three of which were successful.
Udinese has scored six goals in its last six games under Andrea Sottil. The total number of goals they have given up in those same contests is 8.
Udinese hasn’t defeated AC Milan in their last six league games, according to their past performances. They haven’t lost at home in their last three league games and haven’t won at home in the last eight league games. What a miserable stretch.

The AC Milan defense has put on a string of strong performances, leaving them with 3 goals total conceded from their previous 6 games.
Within the same time frame, their own attack squad has accrued six points. Putting aside previous outcomes, we’ll just have to wait and see if the pattern will hold in this game.

Udinese vs AC Milan – Betting Analysis
Reviewing their previous head-to-head encounters going back to January 19, 2020, we see that Udinese has won 0 of them, AC Milan has won 3, and there have been 3 draws.
The two teams combined for 20 goals during this time, with 12 from the Rossoneri and 8 from the Bianconeri Friuliani. 3.33 goals are scored on average during a contest.
For Udinese manager Andrea Sottil, there will be no playing time for Adam Masina (adductor issues), Ilija Nestorovski (adductor problems), Gerard Deulofeu (knee surgery), and Enzo Ebosse (cruciate ligament rupture).
The starting lineup for the Bianconeri Friuliani is likely to be Marco Silvestri, Rodrigo Beco, Jaka Bijol, Nehuén Pérez, Kingsley Ehizibue, Roberto Pereyra, Walace, Sandi Lovric, Destiny Udogie, Beto, and Isaac Success.
The majority of the players in the squad are accessible, so Stefano Pioli, the manager of AC Milan, only has to deal with one fitness issue. Due to a Biceps femoris muscle injury, Junior Messias will be sidelined.
With Mike Maignan, Pierre Kalulu, Malick Thiaw, Fikayo Tomori, Alexis Saelemaekers, Rade Krunic, Ismael Bennacer, Theo Hernandez, Brahim Dáz, Rafael Leo, and Divock Origi on the field, we believe the Rossoneri are most likely to start the game with a 3-4-2-1 formation.
All things considered, it will be difficult for Udinese to defeat this AC Milan squad, who we predict will score at least once to take the lead.
