AC Milan Vs. Udinese Live, 2011 Serie A: Halftime, Zebrette Up 1-0

The first half of the Serie A match between AC Milan and Udinese at the San Siro has been a fairly predictable one. AC Milan have more of the possession and have created a couple of chances, but the pace and ability to get wide that Udinese possess have burned them, and the Zebrette have a 1-0 lead at halftime.

Though Milan have had much more of the ball, they can hardly say that they deserve more than they're getting at the moment. They've been slow in their build-up, and since Pato was forced off with an injury, they struggle to counter with speed. Predictably, Udinese's 3-5-1-1 matches up well with Milan's narrow 4-4-2 diamond.

The goal was created by Gabriel Torje, who has had absolutely no problem filling in for the departed Alexis Sanchez. He provided a great assist to Antonio Di Natale, who scored his third goal of the Serie A season with an equally impressive finish from inside of the penalty area.
