Players to Watch

Brahim Diaz

The attacking midfielder will need to work overtime tonight against a nimble Fiore midfield who will try and hold possession and burst forward when they win the ball. The Spaniard should be able to unlock the defence with ease but will need to play in the wingers and strikers early on to hit them hard right out of the gates.

Fikayo Tomori

Tomori needs to hold down the fort against an in-form Vlahovic who will be a menace but also an experienced Callejon and Saponara - who both love scoring against Milan. The trick in this game is not to concede a penalty and to plant bodies in front of Tatarusanu as there will be lots and lots of shots.

Giacomo Bonaventura

The former Milan midfielder has been doing bits in Florence. He does for them what he used to do for us and what we need to limit tonight. He moves through the lines and puts through crucial passes and makes the awkward runs that get him into dangerous positions to score unpredictable goals. Kessie will need to be physical and Tonali never to lose him when he makes a late run into the box.

Prediction: Fiorentina 1 - 3 Milan
