Fiorentina vs AC Milan Preview: A battle for European contention

Fiorentina and AC Milan will clash in a crucial Serie A match this weekend, with both teams vying for a spot in the top five and a chance to compete in Europe next season.

Fiorentina are unbeaten in their last six matches across all competitions (2W, 4D), but they will be looking to avoid late comebacks that have cost them points in their previous two outings. The Viola are strong at home, having lost just one of their last 13 matches at the Stadio Artemio Franchi (9W, 3D), and they will be hoping to capitalize on their home advantage.

AC Milan, on the other hand, are in fine form, having won their last five matches in all competitions, including three away from home. This resurgence has seen them overtake Juventus into second place, although the 14-point gap to league leaders Inter Milan means they are more likely to be competing for the “best of the rest” spot.

Both teams have a knack for scoring goals, with Milan being one of only two Serie A teams to have scored in all of their away league matches this season. Six of their last seven away trips have produced four goals or more, suggesting that an entertaining encounter is on the cards.

Key players to watch:

  • Rolando Mandragora (Fiorentina): The midfielder has scored in Fiorentina’s last home league match and in Europe earlier this month. All four of his goals this season have come in the second half.

  • Christian Pulisic (AC Milan): The American has scored in four consecutive matches and has helped his team win 11 of the 12 matches in which he has scored for Milan.

Hot stat: Milan have scored two or more goals in nine of their last ten away Serie A matches.
