Italian Serie A 2022-23 kicks off this Friday, with the reigning champions AC Milan playing hosts to Udinese Calcio at San Siro.
AC Milan was locked in a fierce battle for the Serie A title with neighbors Inter Milan. A terrific surge in the end, which saw the Rossoneri win the final 6 matches of the season, saw them over the finish line with a narrow margin of 2 points.
The win was Pioli's first ever trophy and the first Serie A title for AC Milan since the 2010-11 season. Jens Petter Hauge has been the biggest departure so far from the AC Milan camp. However, there have been plenty of new signings, including Charles de Ketelaere, the attacking midfielder from the Belgian Pro League.
Other prominent signings include Junior Messias and Alessandro Florenzi. Milan has won 4 of the 5 preseason friendlies it played, and will be pretty confident of making a winning start in front of the home crowd.
Udinese finished 12th at the end of the last season, its joint best performance in the last 9 seasons. The club has let go of the caretaker coach Gabriele Cioffi and has appointed Andrea Sottil as the new permanent coach.
This is the first time that he will be heading a top-flight team, and will be eager to prove himself.
While the pre-season friendlies were a mixed bag, Udinese did manage to get a winning start to the football season, winning the first round of the Coppa Italia, defeating FeralpiSalo 2-1. The management and the coach have been pretty active in the pre-season transfer market and brought in some fresh faces in the form of Beto, Adam Masina, and Jaka Bijol.
The biggest names to leave the camp so far are Nahuel Molina and Mamadou Coulibaly. Destiny Udogie has been signed by Tottenham but will be loaned back to Udinese for this season.
