Fiorentina vs AC Milan
Italian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 11 May 2019
Kick-Off 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi (Florence).
Neither Fiorentina nor Milan are pulling up any trees coming into their Saturday’s Serie A clash at Stadio Artemio Franchi.
Whilst the hosts have nothing but pride to play for, Rossoneri desperately need points here in order to stay in the race for the fourth-place finish and a spot in the Champions League next season, though.
Milan managed to bring a negative streak of two losses and a draw to an end on Monday when they saw off Bologna 2-1 at Stadio San Siro.
Gennaro Gattuso’s men are now three points short of Atalanta in fourth place and they can’t afford a slip-up in remaining outings against Fiorentina, Frosinone and SPAL.
The trip to Florence is obviously the toughest of three remaining tests for Milan. Cam they survive it and return to Milano with three precious points?
Fiorentina vs AC Milan: Head-to-head
Milan were the more successful side in the history of head to head encounters with Viola.
However, Fiorentina stole a 0-1 victory at Stadio San Siro when these two likes met each other in the first part of the season in late-December last year.
Rossoneri were previously on a streak of three wins and two draws against Fiorentina.
Viola won two and drew two of past four home clashes with Milan.
Fiorentina vs AC Milan: Prediction
Fiorentina saw a massive slide in form in recent months. They made a managerial change in April, but the appointment of Vincenzo Montella as the new head coach did not shift team’s fortunes around.
Viola lost five and drew one of past six games across competitions. They found goals very hard to come by as the team scored only one in past five league outings.
The horrendous run includes two separate 0-1 defeats to the likes of Sassuolo and Empoli in past two rounds.
This is definitely not the kind of form you want to have coming face to face with highly-motivated Milan side.
