Serie A: Udinese vs. AC Milan
Tonight AC Milan takes on Udinese Calcio and its Serie A scoring leader, Antonio Di Natale at Stadio Friuli.
The Rossoneri face a tough test, but coach Leonardo Araujo is positive that his players will get the result he wants.
Meanwhile Ronaldinho has denied speculation he is considering retiring from football at the end of the season.
“I have never considered retiring,” a statement on his official website reads. “The source of my happiness has always been to play football. I am happy at Milan and I will remain here until the end of my contract.”
The transfer of Kaka to Madrid has given the 29-year-old attacking midfielder the chance to take center stage at the San Siro this season but apart from the opening day victory at Siena, he has failed to impress.
‘Dinho’ has not featured in Rossoneri’s last two games but tonight, the two-time FIFA World Player of the Year winner has been given the responsibility of leading Milan’s charge for points against Bianconeri.
Game time is 8:45 p.m. CET (2:45 p.m. ET).
UPDATE: Antonio Di Natale scored a goal in the first half as Udinese defeated Milan 1-0.
