AC Milan were not very good in their return from the international break and lost on the road against Sampdoria. They will now look to avoid losing three in a row for the first time since 2017. AC Milan will play host to Udinese on Tuesday, who had the opposite luck. They returned from the break with a win but have not fared well on the road this season.

AC Milan (14-6-9) are coming off a really frustrating 0-1 loss on the road against Sampdoria over the weekend. Their opponents scored the only goal of the match at just the 1st minute and sat on the result. AC Milan created a few scoring chances but with just one shot on target they couldn’t have expected more. That was their second consecutive loss but prior to that they were undefeated in ten matches in all competitions (7-0-3). AC Milan are sitting at the 4th spot of the Serie A with 51 points, two behind Inter Milan. They are also three ahead of Lazio and Atalanta. AC Milan have been quite competitive at home (9-3-3), where they have won four of their last five.
On the other hand, Udinese (7-14-7) did a solid job in their home match against Genoa. They took the lead at the 14th minute and sealed the win at the 62nd minute for the final 0-2. Udinese are not having a great season but that was their third win in their last five (3-2-0). Udinese are currently sitting at the 16th spot of the league table with 28 points, just three ahead of the relegation zone. But they do have a match in hand so they can move even further up. But Udinese’s biggest flaw this season is their away performance. They have won just once (1-8-4) and have lost each of their last four.
AC Milan beat Udinese by a slim 1-0 on the road earlier in the season. But there has been balance in the last five matches between the two (2-2-1). AC Milan have been slightly better as hosts against Udinese in the past decade (5-3-3).
AC Milan will surely look to bounce back after two tough losses, and they should be able to win here. Udinese are in danger of relegating but have been tragic on the road. I expect AC Milan to win this match, one way or the other.
