Udinese 2 Milan 1

There was hope that qualification for Europe could be settled with a result at Udinese, but that will have to wait... Beckham did not figure in this game as he is suspended, and speculation about Ancelloti replacing Guus Hiddink as Chelsea manager next season is growing.
On a more positive note, this was the 900th match that Maldini has played for Milan, it's just a pity that they didn't take the opportunity to consolidate their position in Serie A - instead Maldini had a penalty awarded against him in the 30th minute giving Udinese the lead. Milan failed to respond effectively and went into half-time 1-0 down.

The second half saw Udinese extend their lead in just the 4th minute leaving Milan staring at the possibility of breaking their unbeaten run that has lasted since the beginning of March. Inzaghi came on and had the ball in the net, but once again the veteran striker was ruled offside. Ronaldhino came on to add to the attack and after chances at either end, Ambrosini scored with his head offering Milan a lifeline. Despite Milan's best efforts to go all-out for the equaliser, it all came too late and the game ended 2-1.
