AC Milan will face Udinese tonight in the late match in Serie A clash. All of us know that it will be a spectacular match to watch as new signing Mario Balotelli can also start for his new team today onwards. Here are some reasons why Milan would clinch an easy victory.
1. New signing Mario Balotelli
January transfer window was of no use for Italian giants until the one and only big spending signing of Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli took place for a sum of £17.600.000. This move can prove effective for Milan as they were without one striker after Alexandre Pato left San Siro for his native club Sao Paulo.
2. A weapon named El Shaarawy
A new talent Stephan El Shaarawy has proved that Milan can rely on him for long. The Italian maestro has scored 15 league goals for the club and 18 goals in all competitions. He is giving tough competition to Napoli striker Edinson Cavani at the moment, who has scored 18 league goals and is three goals ahead of Shaarawy. No doubt, if given a chance, he can give more to his club.
3. Bouncing back for title
After so many defeats at the starting of the season, Milan are now looking to bounce back in the game for the title. Milan are currently at the 6th position. Who can forget the period when Milan were continuously losing their matches and were on 15th-16th position. But now, we can expect a win from Milan and if Milan do get a win, they will get three points and will reach to 40 points.
4. Total support in San Siro
Yes, it is a fact for every football club that they get support and love in their home ground. Milan is also expected to get the same in San Siro. Spectators cheering for this club, motivating players and chantings all over the atmosphere will definitely fill sparks in the AC Milan squad and they can surely get the better of the visitors Udinese.
5. Di Natale chasing El Shaarawy
Udinese forward Antonio Di Natale is just one goal behind Stephan El Shaarawy, so it will be fun to watch whether Di Natale can equalise his goal tally with that of El Shaarawy or whether El Shaarawy will increase the gap. Milan will definitely try not to concede goals and especially not any by Di Natale.
