Tip Reasoning

AC Milan have made a major change in the dugout heading into the new season, with Marco Giampaolo a very different boss from Gennaro Gattuso. While the former Milan boss couldn’t settle on a formation – despite desperately trying – Giampaolo is flexible enough to challenge the best managers week to week. However, he spent last season with Sampdoria getting his side to play with a swagger. Can he transfer that to Milan’s top-four chase?

Udinese are in a different position, as the hosts are likely to be fighting against the drop once again this season. The hosts finished last year on a bit of a high, but only after a terrible stretch of form left them in danger in the first place. With a mixed home record overall, they are likely to struggle against a Milan side who could turn a few heads this season.

Milan’s summer moves almost bring a sense of growth to a few hapless years for the Rossoneri. They’ve breezed through players, managers and even owners to this point, but things are finally starting to take shape. They finished a point off the top three last season, while they have a proven scorer in place along with a side packed full of potential. They finished last season on a low note despite some good form, but they could be all the better for it in the 2019/20 season.

Milan won their final four games last season, while games like this weren’t a problem for them. They were unbeaten away to bottom-half sides, with their last trip to Udine bringing a 1-0 win. Udinese lost to four of the top five at home last season, while their 20 clashes with the top 10 brought only 12 points, with a total of 14 defeats. We see them having a tough time against quality opposition once again on Sunday evening.

As a result, we think Milan are the side to go with here. The Rossoneri are a strong bet to finally return to the Champions League, while they head to a ground where top sides tended to do well last term. As a result, we see value in backing the visitors to claim a result in their opener, while we’re going with a 2-0 victory for the Rossoneri as our correct score prediction at the Dacia Arena. The last three meetings between these two have seen fewer than three goals, while we don’t expect that trend to change here.
