Milan still without a win

serie a live bettingMilan drew 1-1 with Udinese in the match of the 4th round in Serie A and thus continues to be no victory of the season in Italy.

The champions have won only a point from their previous matches against Lazio and Napoli, so now hoped to complete success against "friulans".

Gabriel Torje's cross did not appear to pose too great a danger to Christian Abbiati in the Milan goal but he somehow fumbled the ball to the feet of Di Natale, who accepted the gift for a tap-in at one of his happiest hunting grounds.

Milan almost levelled just before the break when Danilo gave away a needless free-kick on the edge of the penalty area with a foul on Antonio Cassano and Clarence Seedorf sent his shot inside the wall and against the left-hand upright.

Milan increased the pressure in the second half, with Udinese resorting to a more defensive approach.

Cassano missed a chance in the 59th minute when he beat the offside trap, but was denied by Samir Handanovic's alertness.

The Italy international then turned provider for El Shaarawy to mark his home debut with a goal, shooting low across Handanovic and in off the base of the far post.

The woodwork was rattling at the other end in the 75th minute when Giampiero Pinzi's shot struck the inside of the post and rolled agonisingly along the goal line as Udinese looked for their chances on the counter-attack.

And Udinese had the best chances to win the game as Ahmed Benatia forced Abbiati into a save at full stretch with just three minutes left and the keeper made a one-handed stop to deny Di Natale a minute later.

In the other matches of 4th round in Serie A:

Genoa strolled to a 3-0 win over Catania to send them top of Serie A.

Napoli were stopped in their tracks as they were beaten 1-0 at Chievo.

Palermo survived a late Cagliari comeback to win 3-2.

Lazio came from behind to beat Cesena 2-1 for their first Serie A win of the season.

Unbeaten Atalanta put themselves in the black with a 2-1 win at 10-man Lecce thanks to a double from German Denis.

Two goals from Stevan Jovetic saw Fiorentina claim their second win of the season with a 3-0 victory over Parma. After a goalless first half, Jovetic scored in the 46th and and 80th minutes sandwiching a strike from Alessio Cerci.
