Leader AC Milan leaves expensive points against Udinese, Alexis Saelemaekers gets half an hour
AC Milan did not get past Udinese on Friday night. The Milanese were stuck at home on a 1-1 draw. Alexis Saelemaekers (22) started on the bench and came in after 65 minutes.
After half an hour, AC Milan took the lead via Rafael Leão, Alexis Saelemaekers’ competitor on the wing. However, the Milanese did not have much ascendancy and in minute 66 Udinese more than deservedly equalized via Iyenoma Udogie.
Alexis Saelemaekers had only been on the field for a minute when the equalizer fell. Our compatriot could no longer provide for a turnaround. After the game, the frustration with the home team was great. The referee was the head of Jut, although Milan mainly owed the loss of points.

Saelemakers started the season as a basic player, but has now had to make peace with a substitute role for a while. Saelemaekers’ last base place dates back to January 17. In total, the youth product of Anderlecht has already played in 35 official matches this season. He scored twice and provided three assists. Those statistics need to be increased, although he will realize that himself.
AC Milan are leading the Serie A with three points ahead of Inter, who are still in action on Friday evening.
