Fiorentina – Milan

Fiorentina hosts Milan in a match from the 19th round of the Italian Serie A.

Fiorentina are currently 8th in the Serie A with 26 points won so far. La Viola’s record at the moment is 7 wins, 5 draws and 6 defeats. We can say that right now Fiorentina are in a good shape, being unbeaten in their last five matches. In them Stefano Pioli’s team won twice and made three draws. In the last round of the league Fiorentina enjoyed a 1-0 win over Cagliari away from home.

Milan on the other hand continue to suffer, even after Gennaro Gattuso replaced the sacked Vincenzo Montella. Right now The Rossoneri are 11th in the Serie A standings, having won 24 points so far. Their record is 7 wins, 3 draws and 8 defeats, which is really not good.

Before the start of the season Milan had huge ambitions, especially after the club made some expensive signings. But something went wrong once again and now Milan are destined to have another mediocre season in the Serie A.

And if Champions League football looks impossible for both Fiorentina and Milan, both teams are close to the 6th Sampdoria and a possible Europa League qualification. If they manage to improve their performances, especially Milan, they would have some good chances of qualifying for the European competitions.

Fiorentina could be without Bruno Gaspar and Petko Hristov for this game. Both players are recovering from injuries.

Meanwhile Milan could be without Ignazio Abate, Nikola Kalinic and Gabriel Paletta, who are all recovering from injuries.

This is a very interesting game between two teams in a different shape. Will Fiorentina keep their positive performance? Or maybe Milan will find a way to escape from this difficult situation? We shall wait and see what’s going to happen.
