Milan will play away against Udinese in the 17th round of the Italian championship. The match will take place on December 11 in Udine.
Udinese are in 14th place in the standings after 16 matches played, in which they scored 16 points.
The club fired head coach Luca Gotti this week. And this did not come as a surprise – in the last 13 matches, “Udinese” won only one victory. Gabriele Cioffi was appointed as interim coach.
December Udinese started with an incredible match against Lazio, which ended in a 4-4 draw.
In the last round, the Udine club lost to Empoli (1: 3), after which the Udinese management decided to change the coach.
Udinese have suffered only two defeats in eight home games.
Milan, meanwhile, lead the Serie A standings with 38 points in 16 previous matches.
The Rossoneri moved up to first place after a 2-0 home win over Salernitana last round. At the same time, the gap from competitors could have been much more significant if Stefano Pioli’s team had not lost to Fiorentina and Sassuolo at the end of November.
Earlier this week , AC Milan lost at home to Liverpool (1-2) and were eliminated from European competition. Against the background of one of the best clubs in the Premier League, Milan did not look very confident, to put it mildly.
AC Milan have won six victories in eight away matches of the Italian championship.
