AC Milan beat Udinese to earn a precious win

Oct 19 2013, 8:28pm CDT | by IANS

Milan, Oct 20 (IANS) AC Milan beat Udinese 1-0 at home Saturday to earn a precious win in preparation for their Champions League match against Barcelona, Xinhua reported.

Milan, Oct 20 — AC Milan beat Udinese 1-0 at home Saturday to earn a precious win in preparation for their Champions League match against Barcelona, Xinhua reported.

Valter Birsa scored the winner in the 22nd minute to award Milan the win which they needed in earnest. This is the second win for the Milan side in their recent six games.

Udinese struggled to create any clear goalscoring opportunities, the closest they went being Antonio Di Natale's 25-yard free-kick that was tipped onto the crossbar by Gabriel in the 64th minute.

With the win, Milan leapfrogged Udinese to the eighth place in the Serie A table.

AC Milan head coach Massimiliano Allegri praised his midfielders in helping improve the team's defence.

"The midfielders worked well, as did Robinho and Valter Birsa, while Riccardo Montolivo won back possession several times with smart interceptions," he said.

"Nigel De Jong has also learned how to play in front of the defence, whereas Montolivo played there in extraordinary fashion last season when Massimo Ambrosini was injured," he said.

"We played well in the first half but wasted a few too many counter-attack chances, but then we created more chances after the break and it was a deserved victory," he said.

The Milan boss hinted that this win could boost his team's morale prior to their Champions League match against Barcelona Tuesday. "The important thing was to win tonight. We'll need a perfect performance on Tuesday to get a result."

Udinese head coach Francesco Guidolin said he saw improvements in his side despite their loss at Milan.

"I believe we are a team who absolutely need to improve the quality of our away performances, as those have always been bad this season," he said.

"Having said that, in terms of determination, courage, going forward and confidence I think there were steps forward. Even if it wasn't sufficient to get a result, it was an improvement," he said.

"Milan are a strong side, certainly stronger than Udinese, although they had a few difficulties at the moment and will face Barcelona next week. An Udinese in good shape could' ve won here. As we are not as sharp as last season, we lost," he said.

Why Mario Balotelli Is Under Most Pressure for Italy at the World Cup

Cagliari Calcio v Juventus - Serie A
While Italy’s prospects of success at the 2014 World Cup remain difficult to assess, there are a number of men who can undoubtedly carry them further than many expect. Without the injured Giuseppe Rossi, Cesare Prandelli will lean on the brilliance of veteran stars Gigi Buffon and Andrea Pirlo more than ever before. Yet for the Azzurri, it always seems that the performances of another name will most likely determine just how long Italy remains in Brazil ...

Germany v Argentina: 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil Final
The result made headlines around the world.

Gazzetta dello Sport’s front page borrowed a line from the Italian national anthem, demanding: "Dov'e la vittoria?” (“Where is the victory?”) Cesare Prandelli’s team have not won a game since September last year. Italians, though, are used to seeing their team underp ...
