Udinese – Milan
Is age finally catching up to Antonio Di Natale? For the first time since 2005, the striker has failed to score in any of Udinese’s first four games of a Serie A season.
He is, admittedly, playing fewer minutes than he once did – only starting two of the matches so far, and coming off the bench in the other two – but the bottom line for Udinese is that nobody else has picked up the slack in the meantime. Stefano Colantuono’s team have scraped together just two goals between them so far.
He is expected to go back into the first XI for this game against a Milan team that is yet to keep a clean sheet in the league under Sinisa Mihajlovic.
The Rossoneri, for their part, are expected to start Mario Balotelli for the first time since he returned from Liverpool.
With Carlos Bacca in form alongside him, there will certainly be an abundance of attacking talent on the pitch at the Friuli, and no shortage of motivation.
Tip: Over 2.5 goals – 2.08
