AC Milan vs Udinese predictions and betting tips for the Serie A fixture on Tuesday 2nd April 2019. Udinese have had a shocking season and are still not away from the relegation zone, while AC Milan are battling for a Champions League place.
This season has been nothing short of a disaster for Udinese, and we’re predicting another loss for them in Milan.
AC Milan need to get back to winning ways after two straight defeats, but prior to defeat in the Milan derby, they had kept clean sheets in their last five home games.
A 2-0 home win is the score prediction for this Serie A clash on Tuesday – Udinese haven’t won away since September.
Defeat in the Milan derby and then a 1-0 loss to Sampdoria has left AC Milan clinging on to fourth spot in Serie A, Lazio and Atalanta are just three points behind and Lazio have a game in hand, so a win against Udinese is vital if they are to keep things in their own hands.
Udinese have had a season to forget but gave themselves a three point cushion from the relegation zone with a win against Genoa last time out.
They are now three points above the drop zone but still have work to do to to stay in the top flight. Their really poor away record is a lot to do with the position they’re in having failed to score in 46% of away matches this season.
Gennaro Gattuso’s man need to bounce back to winning ways and quickly if they are to hold onto their top four place, and that is exactly what we are predicting they will do against Udinese, given that the Rossoneri kept clean sheets in five home matches in a row before defeat to their rivals, a bet on AC Milan to win to nil looks a good selection for our AC Milan vs Udinese tips.
AC Milan to win – 1/2
Draw – 3/1
Udinese to win – 6/1
When signing from Genoa, striker Krzysztof Piatek couldn’t stop scoring for AC Milan, firing in seven in his first six matches. Things have slowed down a bit since then and he’s only got one in his last four Serie A games, so his odds are a little bit short for an anytime goalscorer tip at 19/20.
We’re not expecting Udinese to score in this match so the focus is on the other AC Milan players and in truth, no player stands out. Suso has only got five goals this season but he’s not scored for a number of months in Serie A, and Higuain has moved on to Chelsea, where he is struggling for goals.
With that in mind, it may be worth taking a chance one of the players who don’t score many goals to get on the scoresheet here. Samu Castillejo has only found the net three times this season but he did score a few home matches ago against Empoli. At 7/2, he’s the selection to round off this week’s betting tips.
We’re expecting the home side to get back to winning ways here and put a bit of room between themselves and the chasing pack in the race for fourth.
A good run between now and the end of the season will see AC Milan back in the Champions League.
Udinese are still looking over their shoulders and their poor away record probably won’t get any better in this match – they’ve conceded 13 goals in their last four on the road and that should mean AC Milan can secure a comfortable victory in this match.

🎙 #Tudor: "@Samiircaetanoo has trained very well over the last couple of weeks – he’s not played for quite a while and we’ll bring him back step by step. #Teodorczyk is available again and will be on the bench.”
