Fiorentina vs AC MilanSerie A, KO: 19:45 Nov 20, 2021, Stadio Artemio Franchi
AC Milan will put their unbeaten record on the line when they face Fiorentina in an Italian Serie A clash on Saturday. Milan have done well in this fixture and with La Viola often inconsistent, they will fancy their chances of coming out on top.
After struggling throughout last season, Fiorentina have shown plenty of improvement this term and are comfortably in the top half of the table. However, they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Juventus in their previous Serie A fixture prior to the international break.
Vincenzo Italiano’s men have claimed just two wins in their last six Serie A matches, suffering four defeats in that run.
One positive for Fiorentina is the form of Dusan Vlahovic, who appears to be carrying on from his impressive showing last season. However, the striker’s exploits in attack are usually undone by a leaky defence that has kept just two clean sheets in the last six matches.
AC Milan are one of two unbeaten teams still left in Serie A this season, the other being Napoli. They have matched the Neapolitans every step of the way so far with both teams level at the top of the standings, seven points above their closest challengers.
The Rossoneri travel to Fiorentina off the back of a 1-1 draw with local rivals Inter Milan in their previous Serie A fixture. They fell behind early in the contest but benefitted from an unfortunate owngoal from Stefan De Vrij.
Stefano Pioli’s men have also been impressive on their travels this season, winning their last four away matches in Serie A. They have already won at Atalanta this term and also claimed a 2-1 victory over Roma in their previous away fixture.
