AC Milan put their recent patchy form in Serie A to one side with a defiant win over Roma at the weekend, and Stefano Pioli will now be looking to follow up with another convincing display against Udinese on Wednesday at 7.45pm (UK time).
The Rossoneri entered Sunday’s showdown in the capital against Roma on a concerning run of back-to-back defeats, but Pioli stemmed the tide and got Milan’s title charge back on track with a 2-1 win, keeping the club to within four points of current leaders Inter.

AC Milan vs Udinese build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
If the 2-0 defeat to Spezia last month was just a mere blip on a otherwise impressive season for Milan, their 3-0 loss in the recent installation of the Derby della Madonnina highlighted a wider concern for Pioli’s men and their true capabilities of challenging for the Scudetto.
The Italian coach weathered the storm and masterminded a superb win in the Eternal City last time out, rejuvenating a semblance of impetus at the San Siro, but he must not get complacent this week, as Udinese have hit a recent hot streak, suffering just one defeat in their last seven Serie A games.
- AC Milan (vs Roma): Donnarumma; Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Hernandez; Kessie, Tonali, Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu*, Rebic*; Ibrahimovic*.
- Udinese (vs Fiorentina): Musso; Becao, Bonifazi, Nuytinck; Molina, De Paul, Walace, Makengo, Larsen; Nestorovski, Llorente.
Milan got the job done against Roma at the weekend, but the trio of Hakan Calhanoglu, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ante Rebic all went off injured, with the former forced to withdraw at half time, making them all doubtful for Wednesday’s tie. Pioli could welcome back Ismael Bennacer and Mario Mandzukic, though.
For the visitors, Fernando Forestieri, Mato Jajalo and Ignacio Pussetto are all out of action. Gerard Deulofeu, meanwhile, faces a late fitness test and could return here, having missed the last two league games with a slight knee issue.

Players to watch:
- AC Milan: Fikayo Tomori has been a pillar of defensive excellence since trading a cushy sinecure on the Chelsea bench for a prominent berth in the heart of Milan’s backline. Under Pioli the England international has really stepped up to the challenge and acclimatised quite brilliantly to the hustle and bustle of Italian football, marshalling Milan’s rearguard with a maturity beyond his years, while subsequently firing his name back into the crosshairs of Gareth Southgate. There is now talk of a permanent move taking place in the summer, owing to a clause in his loan deal, and the 23-year-old has thus far been worthy of generating such interest.
- Udinese: Rodrigo De Paul looked destined to leave the Stadio Friuli in the summer, with Leeds United among those most interested with the Argentine’s signature. The 26-year-old ultimately stayed on for another year in Italy but those rumours are unlikely to abate this summer with the No. 10 enjoying another impressive campaign. The club captain is Udinese’s most productive player with a league-high five goals, and three assists to boot, and he will be looking to follow on from a positive showing against Milan in the reverse fixture, during which time he netted against Pioli’s side in a tense 2-1 reversal.
