The draw wasn’t exactly what AC Milan needed after putting together three wins in a row, particularly coming into this match with a lot of enthusiasm, but this time the Rossoneri allowed some crucial mistakes that saw Udinese equalize. It was a hard-fought game so let’s see what the numbers tell us about this one.

One - The red card that forced Davide Calabria to leave the match and make it a 11 vs 10 contest. The young fullback committed a dire error in the middle of the second half and had to leave the game early. It’s clear that he does not like to play on the left side of the field, but he could surely do better. Also, Milan have struggled to control the match in the second half all season long and this definitely wasn't what they needed to earn three points.

25% - The Rossoneri are one of the worst team of the league in terms of scoring percentage and this game was not an exception. The team managed by Gennaro Gattuso played extremely well in the first half and deserved the lead, but one goal was not enough. André Silva, who surprisingly returned to the starting XI, missed a couple of good chances and continued to struggle in Serie A, while Suso proved he’s the man for AC Milan thanks to an absolute gem from outside.

6 - Suso’s goal tally this season. The Spanish right wing/attacking midfielder is Milan’s best scorer, which shows how hard it is for this team to score in 2017/2018. Other clubs which have their best scorer at 6: SPAL and Bologna. Not the best company, is it?
