AC Milan's results may not have improved a great deal of late, but their performances certainly have. The Seedorf Effect is now really beginning to show, with the rossoneri adapting to a possession-based high-pressing game which saw them give league leaders Juventus a run for their money last weekend. They eventually succumbed to a 2-0 defeat, though on another day the scoreline could've been very different.
They should be able to make amends with three points away at Udinese on Saturday, with the sorry zebrette having been hugely underwhelming so far this season. They're down in 15th place, and while their seven point buffer should be enough to stop them being sucked into the relegation zone, it might not be enough to save their long-serving coach Francesco Guidolin.
For this match, they'll be without Andrea Lazzari and Igor Bubnjić through injury, while Danilo is unavailable through suspension. AC Milan still have Stephan El Shaarawy and Bryan Cristante sidelined, with Andrea Poli and Andrea Petagna also out.
