A struggling AC Milan welcome a rejuvenated Fiorentina to the San Siro on Sunday and one can be sure that both teams will be desperate to earn all three points from the encounter.
AC Milan Match Betting News
AC Milan made a very encouraging start to their Serie A campaign under Vincenzo Montella and it looked for a while that the Rossoneri could well be on their way to reclaiming their lost glory days under the young manager.
However, it is back to square one for Milan once again as a run of only a single victory in their last six Serie A matches has seen the fallen giants of Italian football drop down to 7th place in the table.
While Milan are not a million miles away from one of the European places, their recent slide is certainly very alarming and Montella will surely want his team to get back to winning ways when they square off against his former side Fiorentina on Sunday.
Riccardo Montolivo, Giacomo Bonaventura, Mattia De Sciglio, Luca Antonelli and Alessio Romagnoli are the players who look set to miss out on the night due to injury.
Fiorentina Match Betting News
In direct contrast to Milan, Fiorentina endured a tough start to the season but have managed to recover very well in recent weeks and a run of only one defeat in the last seven matches means that Viola have managed to put themselves back in contention for a European spot.
There is admittedly a lot of work still left to be done before Fiorentina are able to catch up on the teams above them but Paulo Sousa’s men will surely be motivated by the prospect of leapfrogging rivals Milan when they travel to the San Siro this weekend.
AC Milan vs Fiorentina Match Prediction
Matches between Milan and Fiorentina have historically tended to be close affairs and the clash on Sunday should be no different as well.
The main concern for Milan is that they are on an undeniable dip while Fiorentina are gaining momentum and though the two teams are very closely matched, the away side might just have the higher level of confidence to be able to claim all three points on the night.
