AC Milan begin the defence of their Serie A crown by welcoming Udinese to the Giuseppe Meazza on Saturday. Fresh from last season's success, the reigning champions look to begin the new season the same way they ended the previous one.

Udinese come visiting AC Milan, who finished last season in the Serie A as number one on 86 points. In contrast, the aforementioned visitors finished number 12 on 47 points.

Since both AC Milan and Udinese are looking to start their season on a good note, we are in for a tough fight over their first points of the season on Saturday.

AC Milan are relatively average in the art of goal-scoring these days. They claimed a steady 15 goals in their previous ten matches, for an average of 1.5 goals per game. They simultaneously allowed their opponents two goals, or an average of 0.2 goals a game. Furthermore, they fought their way to eight clean sheets in this run.

Ahead of their coming Serie A match, Udinese look in excellent goal-scoring shape. In their previous ten games, they hammered in an average of 2.5 goals a game. A highly respectable total of 25 goals, while also letting in 12 goals. The latter leaves an average of 1.2 per outing, in which they managed two clean sheets.

AC Milan vs Udinese Prediction

AC Milan swept all aside in their last three matches and started off by winning 1-3 against Verona. They went on to defeat Atalanta 2-0 and made it three on the spin against Sassuolo in a 0-3 victory.AC Milan put four wins on the board in their previous six Serie A matches at the Giuseppe Meazza. They drew twice while losing none, scored seven goals while conceding one.

AC Milan ran away with the title last season and naturally enter the new campaign as favourites to repeat the feat. A strong start to the season could lay the foundations.

Udinese managed a decent return of three wins in their last six Serie A away matches, in which they scored 14 while also conceding six times. They also experienced two draws and one defeat.

Finishing inside the top half is the bare minimum Udinese expect for this season, but the ideal target is a spot in Europe.

AC Milan are far too strong to let a home win slip against Udinese, but at the same time, we don't expect the visitors to get over-run. This makes us target the home win in a match with less than three goals.
