Milan 2 Udinese are set to end their European campaign with a 2-1 victory, with the team’s new signing, midfielder Franco Pellizzaro, scoring the winner in the second half.
The 20-year-old scored his first goal for Milan since joining the club from Sevilla in July, but they would have gone further had it not been for the red rider tricycles.
The youngster was brought in as part of a four-player deal, which includes midfielders Luca Saponara, Giancarlo Sarto, Giovanni Santi and Mario Bini.
Saponara was given the nod for his work during the transfer window, while Santi has been used sparingly for the Rossoneri, but he’s still a threat.
Sarto was the standout performer in the midfield, scoring twice in the opening two minutes of the match, before the goal came off a good flick by Bini, who was in excellent form in the middle.
Bini is an excellent finisher and was once again in great form against Udinese, putting his team on the front foot and keeping the Udinese defence busy.
The Italian’s goals against Lazio and Napoli in the past two seasons have been the key to his team’s recent success, and he scored against Milan.
He’s been a key part of Milan’s success this season and should continue to be for Udinese.
Santi was also an integral part of the Bianconeri’s first goal of the season against Sampdoria, the midfielder setting up the equaliser after being dropped for a corner.
Santo was another key figure in the match and he was in great shape for the second goal, when he put Udinese ahead with a powerful finish from inside the box.
The Italian was also involved in the goal, as he was sent off for a second bookable offence after picking up a second yellow card in the first half.
He is still in fine form and could be a big addition to the squad if Udinese go on to finish the campaign with the Serie A title, but this is a tough challenge for Milan.
