AC MILAN TEAM ON A ROLL ahead of Udinese, Serie A Week 24


A positive result this weekend will set the team’s longest unbeaten run of the season.

MILAN – The Rossoneri welcome Udinese this Sunday on the back of a 5 match unbeaten run in Serie A consisting of 3 wins and 2 draws. From round 8 through to round 12, Milan also went five matches without loss and so another positive result at the San Siro this weekend would set a new record for the season.

Milan have kept three successive clean sheets in all competitions, Alessandria (TIM Cup), Inter (Serie A) and Palermo (Serie A), while at the other end of the pitch, and by getting his name on the score-sheet on Wednesday away at Palermo, Carlos Bacca scored his 12th league goal of the season. This now makes him the highest scorer from Colombia in a single Serie A season. The previous record belonged to Muriel (2012/13) and Cuadrado (2013/14) who both managed to find the back of the net 11 times with Udinese and Fiorentina respectively.

The month of February has often proved itself to be a testing one for Udinese coach Stefano Colantuono and his teams with a points average of 1.25: 14 wins, 17 draws and 16 defeats from 47 matches in the professional leagues. While Milan are enjoying a positive run of form, the opposite could be said about Udinese who are winless in their past 5 Serie A games following 2 draws and 3 defeats.
