AC Milan face Udinese at San Siro on Wednesday night in this Coppa Italia clash, with both clubs aware that this is their best chance of silverware this season.
Clarence Seedorf had a winning start to life on the Milan bench following the 1-0 victory against Hellas Verona on Sunday, and the Dutchman will be eager to follow it up with progress in the cup which arguably represents the Rossoneri’s best chance of qualifying for Europe next season.
Milan continue to languish in the bottom half of the Serie A table and are still seven points adrift of a place in Europe, and 18 points behind third placed Napoli.
Massimiliano Allegri paid the price for their poor domestic form, with Seedorf introducing a new progressive and high-tempo style of play in his debut as coach which received mixed reviews.
Meanwhile, Udinese have been on a terrible run of form in recent weeks which has seen them fall to 15th place in Serie A and leaves them just three points above the relegation zone.
With Antonio Di Natale set to retire at the end of the season, the talismanic club captain will be determined to secure silverware for the club before he leaves, and so this encounter promises to be a thrilling clash.
Mario Balotelli will likely spearhead the Milan attack, with the likes of Keisuke Honda, Kaka and Riccardo Montolivo expected to play some part, with Ignazio Abate also ready to return from injury.
