AC Milan Make Poor Start in Serie A with Udinese Loss

AC Milan stumbled at the first hurdle with a 1-0 loss at Udinese in their opening game of the Serie A season on Sunday as the hosts’ new Brazilian signing Rodrigo Becao scored a second-half winner.

AC Milan finished fifth last season, missing out on Champions League qualification, but have changed coaches with former Sampdoria boss Marco Giampaolo taking over from Gennaro Gattuso.

The seven-time European champions were lacking inspiration in Udine, though, without a single shot on target against an Udinese side who finished 12th last term after fighting to avoid relegation.

The breakthrough came on 72 minutes when 23-year-old Becao connected with a Rodrigo De Paul corner to head past Gianluigi Donnarumma in the Milan goal.

Donnarumma got his fingers to the ball to prevent a second from Kevin Lasagna just minutes later. (SuperSport)
