Serie A / AC Milan vs AC Fiorentina – Despite having European ambitions both teams have played badly and occupy places in the bottom half of the table. Milan is a large disappointment as they already lost three times and have won two matches by the minimal result. Fiorentina won for the first time right in the previous round and they have on points fewer than their hosts. Fiorentina won last year in Milan by 1-0, but Milan defeated them in Florence by the same result.

The first away defeat by Udinese is now almost forgotten since Milan won two times after that, but then came two more defeats and the situation become alarming. The two victories were achieved by minimal 1-0 and they won new member of the Serie A Brescia and Verona. Milan was greatly helped against Verona with a red card showed to a Verona’s player early on, and then came the city derby with Inter where all weaknesses of the Rossoneri came under spotlight. They were defeated by 2-0 being nominal hosts and it was a rather modest match.
Last Thursday they went to Turin where they tried to take the make-up exam. They started well as they take a lead after Piatek scored from penalty and had large number of good chances in the first half. At the same time they didn’t allow virtually anything to their opponent and it seemed that victory is around the corner. Instead, Milan totally felt apart in the second half and two goals scored in just four minutes were enough for another defeat. The pressure is growing now, and Rebic could get a chance alongside Piatek in the top of the attack from the first minute.
Probable lineups AC Milan: G. Donnarumma – Calabria, Musacchio, Romagnoli, T. Hernandez – Kessie, Bennacer, Calhanoglu – Suso – Rebic, Piatek
Fiorentina also had significant problems at the beginning but atmosphere in the team is better after they finally won on Wednesday. Besides winning no one in first four rounds it sounds a bit surreal that Fiorentina hasn’t won in the Serie A since mid-February. After that they played 14 matches last season, which means a total of 18 league games without a win for Fiorentina but then they finally won Sampdoria 2-1. It could be seen that their form is getting better as after two first defeats they were able to draw with two participants of the Champions League.
They drew 0-0 with Juventus, and they dropped advantage of two goals against Atalanta and had to settle for 2-2 draw. Fiorentina received the second goal deep in the stoppage time and definitely didn’t have luck. They took the lead 2-0 against Sampdoria after Pezzelle and Chiese scored and the rival had a player less on the pitch but nevertheless they received a goal and played in fear till the end of match. Manager Montella has found the winning combination with the team and he made no changes in two previous rounds, so he won't now.
Probable lineups AC Fiorentina: Dragowski – Pezzella, Caceres, Milenkovic – Lirola, Pulgar, Badelj, Castrovilli, Dalbert – Chiesa, Ribery
Betting Pick: AC Milan vs AC Fiorentina
Milan has great imperative to win and that can be a problem but they simply have to be good in attack and we don’t doubt that will score a goal or two. Their defence is vulnerable and Fiorentina is not under huge pressure after the first victory and we expect to be dangerous and fight back on equal footing.
Pick: Both teams to score
