AC Milan vs Fiorentina
AC Milan to win 2-0 – 7/1
Preview of the match
As time goes on, it appears more and more likely that Napoli will win this league by a significant margin, despite the fact that the defending champions still have a chance to make a run at the title when the regular season resumes in January. A victory for Milan here and a loss for Napoli would bring the gap to five points, and with Lazio heading to the in-form Juventus this weekend as well, there is a great chance for the team captained by Stefano Pioli to get themselves back into second place at the very least.
Olivier Giroud will be able to play here despite missing Milan’s draw with Cremonese in the middle of the week due to suspension. Milan defeated Spezia by a narrow margin the previous weekend. The Frenchman will be required, as Milan’s lack of success against the 18th-place team without a win was clearly attributable to the absence of his presence up top.
As for Fiorentina, they are currently in 10th place, and as long as they achieve a result this weekend that is equal to or better than that of Salernitana, they will remain in the top half of the table until the month of January. Even better, the team from Florence has won their last five consecutive matches, including victories in the Europa Conference League over Istanbul Basaksehir and RFS, as well as Serie A victories over Spezia, Sampdoria, and Salernitana. This is an incredible run of success for the team from Florence.
Since their last match, three weeks ago, when they were defeated by Inter Milan, this is the first time they have competed against a team that is ranked higher than them in the league table.
