Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Stadio San Siro will host Saturday’s Serie A clash between Milan and Fiorentina, the two top-table sides. The Rossoneri are eager to put an end to their four-game winless run, but they will have to do it without suspended striker Olivier Giroud. The likes of Rafael Leao, Davide Calabria, Mattia Caldara, Pierre Kalulu are sidelined with injuries, while both Ismael Bennacer and Christian Pulisic should recover in time to face the Viola.
Fiorentina, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Bologna and they managed to get one, with the team putting an end to their three-game losing run in the Italian top flight. As Milan head into the match with a severely-weakened squad, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw. As for the away side, Luca Ranieri misses out through suspension, while all Lucas Beltran, Michael Kayode, Dodo, and Gaetano Castrovilli remain in the recovery room.
Highlighted Player (Alessandro Florenzi):
Alessandro Florenzi is probably the most impressive product of AS Roma youth academy since Francesco Totti and Daniele De Rossi, and the full-back has already developed into an important player for both club and country.
Capable of operating as both right-back and right winger, the talented footballer is probably best remembered from scoring a marvellous goal from half-way line in the Champions League clash against Barcelona, but there is much more to him than an occasional wonder strike. While he usually played as a winger during his early career, Florenzi switched to attacking full-back at both Roma and Italy national team, and that proved a very good move for his career.
While helping the Gialorossi return to old glory days, the right-back left his mark on international stage as well, especially impressing since Antonio Conte took over the reigns in the national team. Despite the fact that he has yet to realise his full potential, Florenzi already boasts an impressive top flight experience and he is predicted a bright future in the game.
Highlighted Team (Fiorentina):
AC Fiorentina was founded on 29th of August in 1926 after a fusion between Libertas and CS Firenze. Currently Fiorentina is playing his home games in the Stadio Artemio Franchi in Florence which can accommodate 47282 supporters. The stadium was build in 1931 by Pier Luigi Nervi. De first prize ever won by Fiorentina was the CoppaItalia in the season of 1939/1940. The first Scudetto (name for the Serie A title) was in 1955/1956. One of the most important players in that season was the Brazilian Juninho. In 1996 he was rewarded as the best player in club history.
One year later Fiorentina lost the semi finals in the European Cup 1 against Real Madrid. During that period of time Fiorentina won the Europan Cup 2 against Glasgow Rangers and the Coppa Italia as well. In total Fiorentina won the league title twice.
