Venue: Stadio Friuli; Udine, Italy
During the first seasonal match against them we played probably one of the best games of the season: 90 minutes of territorial supremacy with 61% of ball possession and a lot of good plays. And it wasn't accidental. For the first time since the beginning of the season Inzaghi sent on the field a "quality" (the world is relative, thanks Albert Einstein) midfield made by Bonaventura, Essien and Van Ginkel and that choice paid off.
Here we have some statistics about November 30, 2014 match.
Jeremy Menez didn't shine during last week game against FC Internazionale, but he was brilliant against Udinese (he scored twice) in November and he's expected to be the key player for this game too. Another important thing for Saturday afternoon match will be our defense. Alex and Mexes played decently Sunday against Inter, but they mad a lot of mistakes that should have been avoided though; Antonelli was awful and looked like he wasn't in a good physical condition, but fortunately on the other side Abate played a great game - at least during the first half - when we tried to play some football.
Here we have the highlights from November 30, 2014 game against Udinese!
Some additional curiosity about the head to head matches against Udinese: 36 AC Milan wins, 30 draws, 13 losses, scoring 139 and allowing only 75 goals.
