Serie A Preview: AC Milan v. Udinese

Date: Sunday, February 3 2013

Kickoff: 2:45 PM ET (USA) / 20:45 CET (ITA)

League Position: Milan (5), Udinese (9)

Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan, Italy

Milanisti have spent much of this week fixated on the Balotelli transfer, and rightfully so. But lost in Balotelli fever is the fact that a dangerous Udinese side, in solid form of late, are set to visit the San Siro on Sunday. The Rossoneri themselves are of course on the upswing as well, unbeaten in the new year and now just 3 points back of city rivals Inter and 6 behind Lazio in 3rd.

Serie A Preview: Atalanta v. AC Milan

Date: Sunday, January 27 2013

Kickoff: 9:00 AM ET (USA) / 15:00 CET (ITA)

League Position: Milan (6) – Atalanta (13)

Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia, Bergamo, Italy

Though the scoreline doesn’t properly tell the tale it was a solid Milan performance last time out against Bologna.

Atalanta make up in aggression what they lack in attack, and Allegri must have the team prepared for a real scrap in Bergamo this Sunday.

Serie A Preview: AC Milan v. Bologna

Date: Sunday, January 20 2013

Kickoff: 9:00 AM ET (USA) / 15:00 CET (ITA)

League position: Milan (7) – Bologna (14)

Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan, Italy

The return half of Serie A began better than the first with Milan picking up a point over a Sampdoria side that snatched all three all the way back in round 1. At this point in the season (and in the “new Milan” adventure) a draw in a game that could have gone either way is satisfying enough, although the Rossoneri did miss out on the chance to leapfrog listless Roma. Bologna is a squad Milan easily handled away in September, but the Rossoblu have found an offense and the victory might not be as easy to come by this time around.
