The Milan side also has managed to win just a single match from their previous 5 games.
The Bianconeri Friuliani has managed to garner just 4 points from their last 5 matches, with a victory over AS Roma the only match they managed 3 points. The team from Udine sits precariously in 17th position with 13 points, just 2 points ahead of Bologna.
