Fiorentina and AC Milan will lock horns with each other in Serie A this weekend. The match at Stadio Artemio Franchi in Florence is slated to kick off at 5pm UK time on Sunday and promises to be an exciting game of football.

Fiorentina

Fiorentina are 13th in the Serie A table at the moment with 29 points from 27 matches. Cesare Prandelli’s side are having a bad season and are only seven points above the relegation zone. It is very unlikely that Fiorentina will go down to Serie B at the end of the campaign, but whatever happens in the final weeks, it is not going to be considered a good season.

La Viola will head into the match against Milan on Sunday on the back of a 4-1 victory over Benevento away from home in Serie A. It followed a 3-3 draw with Parma at Stadio Artemio Franchi in the league, and the Florence outfit will be hoping to make it three league games without a defeat.

Team News:

Dusan Vlahovic scored a hat-trick against Benevento and will start against Milan.

AC Milan

AC Milan are having a wonderful season and are very much in the running for the Scudetto. The Rossoneri are second in the Serie A table at the moment with 56 points from 27 matches, nine points behind leaders and city rivals Inter Milan. While Inter have pulled away from the chasing pack in recent games, there are still enough games for Milan to close the gap.

Stefano Pioli’s side suffered a 1-0 defeat to Napoli at San Siro in Serie A last weekend. It followed a 1-1 draw with Manchester United away from home at Old Trafford in the Round of 16 of the Europa League and a 2-0 victory over Hellas Verona in the league. Milan are back in action on Thursday evening when they take on United at home in the second leg of the tie.

Team News:

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has recovered from his thigh injury and could start against Fiorentina. Ismael Bennacer is fit as well.

Key Factors to Consider

  • AC Milan have scored 50 goals and conceded 31 goals in Serie A this season.
  • Fiorentina have scored 33 goals and conceded 42 goals in Serie A this season.
  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored 14 goals in Serie A this campaign.
  • Dusan Vlahovic has scored 12 goals in Serie A this campaign.
  • AC Milan won 2-0 against Fiorentina at San Siro in November 2020.

Conclusion

Fiorentina are not going to make it easy for Milan, but the Rossoneri should be able to pick up all three points from the encounter and maintain their challenge  for the Scudetto.

Prediction: AC Milan to win 2-1
