Serie A Preview: AC Milan-Udinese

Massimiliano Allegri's side at last appears to have put its early season struggles behind it and heads into the game on a run of three wins from its last four outings.

  PROBABLE LINE-UPS

AC MILAN

Abbiati
Abate, Bonera, Zapata, Constant
Flamini, Montolivo, Boateng
Niang, Pazzini, El Shaarawy
UDINESE

Padelli
Benatia, Danilo, Domizzi, Pasquale
Basta, Pinzi, Allan, Lazzari
Muriel
Di Natale

Regardless of the result on Sunday, in years to come the last seven days will always be remembered for the signing of Mario Balotelli.

The arrival of the former Inter man was a timely and symbolic reminder that AC Milan still has the ambition and allure to attract players of the highest quality to San Siro, at a time when many supporters feared quite the opposite.

Balotelli is likely to start on the bench for the Rossoneri, which means Giampaolo Pazzini will be handed the opportunity to continue his run of three goals in his last three Serie A appearances.

Udinese welcomes back Mehdi Benatia from AFCON duty, with the defender set to go straight into the starting XI. Luis Muriel should partner Antonio Di Natale upfront.
