Fiorentina vs AC Milan Prediction & Match Preview

Fiorentina

Milan

21 March 2021 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET Serie A Stadio Artemio Franchi

Milan will be looking to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Napoli when they take on Fiorentina at Stadio Artemio Franchi on Matchday 28. 

The Rossoneri were leading the standings in the first half of the season, but, as things stand now, they are unlikely to regain the domestic trophy. 

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was sorely missed in the defeat to Napoli, but seeing that the Swedish veteran has overcome his injury, away win should be considered. 

Rebic is banned for the match, while Mandzukic remains sidelined through injury. All Calabria, Romagnoli, and Leao are rated doubtful.

The Viola, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 4-1 win over Benevento, with Serbia rising star Vlahovic scoring his first ever Serie A hat-trick. 

Since Milan do not seem to be at their sharpest at the moment, we predict that the hosts will pick up one point from Sunday’s clash. Igor and Kokorin should be the only absentees in the home team.

Team News:

Milan's debilitating injury crisis shows no sign of abating, as Rafael Leao suffered a thigh strain on Thursday, while club captain Alessio Romagnoli is still nursing a calf problem and full-back Davide Calabria is set to undergo surgery for a torn meniscus.

January signing Mario Mandzukic (thigh) remains short of fitness and Ante Rebic is suspended after his red card in the dying minutes versus Napoli, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to return from the start, in time to replace Leao up front. Meanwhile, the much-missed Ismael Bennacer has finally recovered from his thigh strain and could make the bench.

Fikayo Tomori will start alongside Simon Kjaer in central defence, given Romagnoli's absence, while either Diogo Dalot or Pierre Kalulu will fill in for Calabria on the right.

The hosts have most of their squad in good health ahead of Sunday's clash, though Sofyan Amrabat has not fully recovered from a back injury and Russian striker Aleksandr Kokorin has a thigh strain, which rules him out.

Wing-back Cristiano Biraghi is expected to return from a minor foot problem and will contend with Lorenzo Venuti for a spot on the left of Fiorentina's customary 3-5-2. Due to Amrabat's probable exclusion, Valentin Eysseric - scorer of the fourth and final goal in Benevento - could continue in midfield, behind the established front pairing of Dusan Vlahovic and Franck Ribery.

Fiorentina possible starting lineup:
Dragowski; Milenkovic, Pezzella, Martinez Quarta; Caceres, Castrovilli, Pulgar, Bonaventura, Venuti; Ribery, Vlahovic

AC Milan possible starting lineup:
Donnarumma; Dalot, Kjaer, Tomori, Hernandez; Kessie, Tonali; Saelemaekers, Calhanoglu, Krunic; Ibrahimovic
