The defeat at home to rookie Benevento, the Fiorentina players marked a hugely tight period in Serie A this season. In contrast, AC Milan are presenting an extremely bright face and are a good candidate for the title this season. Along with his steady form, it is not difficult for coach Stefano Pioli to cut a weak Fiorentina.

After years of investing but not yielding impressive results on the pitch, perhaps this could not be better time for AC Milan to reap the trophies. After eight rounds in Serie A this season, coach Stefano Pioli won six and drew two. Thus, with 20 points in hand, AC Milan are firmly at the top of the standings and 2 points more than the second-placed team. To this point, AC Milan along with Sassuolo and Juventus are three names that have not suffered any defeat since the beginning of the season. In fact, AC Milan’s impressive form has lasted since last season. As evidenced by the last 30 appearances in all competitions, AC Milan have lost just one match. In Serie A alone, coach Stefano Pioli has not lost all 20 of his last 20 games. The problem is that there have been signs of deterioratie as AC Milan have won only two of their last five games. Therefore, the reception of Fiorentina here will be an opportunity for the san siro hosts to regain joy.
Fiorentina fans clearly can’t be satisfied after witnessing their pet team play all the time. Last weekend, Cesare Prandelli’s students even lost to rookie Benevento (0-1) at home. It was also the third consecutive round in which Fiorentina were unable to win. Since the beginning of the season Fiorentina have won only two, drew two and lost four in eight appearances. The 15th-place team, who have the same eight points, reflected somewhat Fiorentina’s poor performances. Even in the last three games, this team has not been able to score. Already, in their last nine away games, Fiorentina have won just two. Not to mention Fiorentina’s personnel situation is not positive, as Ribery and Bonaventura are unlikely to play.
AC Milan: Gianluigi Donnarumma, Davide Calabria, Simon Kjaer, Alessio Romagnoli, Theo Hernandez, Franck Kessie, Ismael Bennacer, Hakan Calhanoglu, Jens Petter Hauge, Ante Rebic, Samu Castillejo.
Fiorentina: Bartlomiej Dragowski, Nikola Milenkovic, German Pezzella, Igor, Cristiano Biraghi, Sofyan Amrabat, Alfred Duncan, Gaetano Castrovilli, Christian Kouame, Dusan Vlahovic, Jose Callejon.
