AC Milan’s recent form has allowed Napoli to open up an advantage at the top of the standings. However, they will be looking to chip away at their rival’s advantage this weekend by claiming a vital home win against the in-form Fiorentina.
Serie A Preview
AC Milan’s grip on the Serie A title looks to be weakening, as they come into this final fixture before the break in play trailing Napoli by eight points. Milan’s recent form has been detrimental to their chances, as they have picked up just one victory from their previous three fixtures. However, they still sit three points clear of fifth-placed Atalanta at this stage of the campaign.
Milan weren’t able to get back to their best in midweek, as they played out a very disappointing 0-0 draw against Cremonese. The reigning Italian champions dominated the possession in that fixture, but they could only register five shots on target. They will need to be more productive in the final third this weekend.
Fiorentina may have started the season very slowly, but they are looking a much more progressive unit at this stage of the season. The Italian giants currently sit tenth in the standings, but they have been in their best form this season over the past month. Fiorentina has won their previous three fixtures, and will be looking for a fourth straight win this weekend.
The Italian side edged to another win in midweek, as they landed a 2-1 home victory against Salernitana. Giacomo Bonaventura opened the scoring after 15 minutes, but the winning goal was netted by Luka Jovic with just nine minutes of the 90 remaining.
AC Milan vs Fiorentina Head to Head
Milan won this exact fixture 1-0 last season. However, Fiorentina won the other meeting between the sides last term. But, that 4-3 victory last season was their only victory in the previous five meetings between the sides in the league. Milan has won three of the previous five.
AC Milan vs Fiorentina Prediction
This will be a difficult challenge for AC Milan in Serie A this weekend. Fiorentina’s recent form has been exceptionally strong, and we fancy their chances of scoring this weekend. However, a score draw could be the most likely outcome.
