AC Milan v Fiorentina
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 29 November 2020
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Giuseppe Meazza Stadium, Milan.
AC Milan impressed in their 1-3 win at Napoli in what’s been a real thriller at San Paolo Stadium, hosting Fiorentina as Serie A pace-setters with Sassuolo and Roma breathing down their necks. They now hope to keep it up and we expect them very motivated to impress despite a tough schedule on their hands.
Rossoneri travel to Lille for their Europa League clash just days beforehand and have seen the French rivals end a lengthy unbeaten streak in early November. They have been conceding goals too but impressed in the final third, which will make it important to see how they bode without Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the ranks.
Fiorentina have seen quite a contrasting run and only ended a three-match winless streak as they beat Udinese (0-1) in Coppa Italia midway through the week. Viola have struggled to score goals and failed to make it on the scoresheet in losses to Roma (2-0) and Benevento (0-1) as well as a goalless draw at Parma in November. We could now be in for a narrow occasion not conventional for AC Milan under Stefano Pioli but the home side still feel like overwhelming favourites.
AC Milan v Fiorentina Head-to-head
- Fiorentina denied Milan twice last term, beating them at this ground 1-3 and holding on to a 1-1 draw at home.
- AC Milan last beat Viola in May 2019, with a 0-1 win at Artemio Franchi Stadium.
- Fiorentina’s win on their last trip to this ground was also their only in nine head-to-head clashes against Rossoneri.
AC Milan v Fiorentina Prediction
We will now back AC Milan to bag all three points and we feel they’ll capitalize on a much better mood they’ve enjoyed early on. We feel that going for a Home win at 1.70 comes as a generous pick as Fiorentina could indeed have trouble finding the net once again.
Still, AC Milan will be without Ibrahimovic in the final third and this could shift the focus elsewhere. Others will feel the pressure and we now feel we’re not in for many goals at San Siro. With that in mind, we’re also backing Under 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at 2.20 and has caught the eye of many in the know.
