Impressive Kessie and a rare draw: All the key stats from Milan’s draw with Udinese

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan were unable to make it back-to-back wins in Serie A as they were forced to settle for a point against Udinese on Wednesday night.

The Rossoneri were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw by Udinese, one that was only earned thanks to a last-minute penalty from Franck Kessie as the team struggled again to break down a team playing a three-man defence and deploying a low block.

Below are the six best post-match stats from the game at San Siro, courtesy of the official website

➤ Franck Kessié scored his 25th Serie A goal for Milan this evening, equalling Robinho’s top-flight goal haul in Rossoneri colours.

➤ Kessie’s goal (96:20) is the latest that Milan have scored in Serie A since April 2017, when Zapata found the net against Inter (96:39).

➤ The Ivorian is the first Milan player to have scored at least eight penalties in a single Serie A campaign since Jérémy Ménez in 2014-15.

➤ Milan have played out a Serie A stalemate for the first time in 13 games: prior to this evening’s match, they last drew against Genoa in December.

➤ With Napoli having conceded twice in the opening period today, Milan have shipped the fewest first-half goals in Serie A this season (nine).

➤ Theo Hernández touched the ball 112 times tonight, his joint-best tally in a single Serie A game.
