AC Milan vs Fiorentina
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 22 December 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (Milan)
Milan have seen another goalless draw as they took on a trip to Bologna last week and now host Fiorentina for their Matchday 17 clash on Saturday looking to end a three-game winless streak, after crashing out of Europa League and earning just two points in two league outings.
Rossoneri still sit in the top 4, though, and we’ll now surely see Gennaro Gattuso’s men very motivated to impress at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza! We have seen them in a good shape here through most part of the campaign and retaining consistency here will surely be crucial for their ambitions to build on the top 4 spot and hold off the chasers – which are many.
Fiorentina have, on the other end, ended an eight-game winless streak in a 3-1 win over Empoli last week and they now sit five points behind them rivals, hoping to use many slip-ups from the big guns and catch up almost midway through the campaign. However, snatching the spoils will be a tough task as the visitors have obvious troubles turning clashes their way.
AC Milan vs Fiorentina: Head-to-head
- Milan haven’t suffered a loss to Fiorentina since August 2015.
- Rossoneri have earned three wins at this ground and two draws on the road since then.
- Fiorentina have found the net in both of the two last term’s clashes too!
AC Milan vs Fiorentina Prediction
We do believe Milan will now be able to turn the clash their way and bag the important points in front of the home crowd despite their struggles in the final third. We’ll thus go for a Home win at 2.30, which does seem a solid approach to the fixture despite an exciting contest in the making.
We do expect goals once again and with that in mind, we’ll now also back Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.90 in hope we’ll see both sides motivated to secure the points and moving forward with confidence. We have seen three or more goals in both of their last two matchups at Giuseppe Meazza and now should be in for more of the same.
