15:00 Milan – Udinese Calcio

Team News

AC Milan

  • Daniele Bonera is available after serving a suspension, but he is not likely to start after a number of disappointing performances.
  • Nigel de Jong has not recovered from an injury that kept him out of the derby, so Michael Essien is expected to start.

Udinese

  • Silivan Widmer is unavailable, so Ivan Piris should start on the right flank, with Maurizio Domizzi deployed at left-back.
  • Panagiotis Kone should take his place behind the two strikers after serving a one-match ban.
  • After drawing 1-1 in the derby, Milan have now gone 5 matches without a victory, but they are still only 4 points off 3rd, with some unlikely contenders – Genoa and Sampdoria – sitting between them and Napoli.
  • Udinese sit level on points with Milan. The visitors' recent form has been disappointing. The Bianconeri will not go all out for victory at the San Siro, but they are unlikely to play a defensive game.
  • This match will hand either team the chance to end their respective winless streaks. With Inter and Fiorentina breathing down their necks, Milan can't afford to drop more points, while Udinese would be happy with a draw.
