Poor H2H but circumstance dictates a win.

AC Milan will face Fiorentina away from home this evening and are in dire need of three points in Serie A. Milan have dropped points 6 times in 2021 and are getting dangerously close to falling out of the top four spots. Milan are still struggling to keep the squad fit with a number of players missing but welcome back Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Players to Watch

Hakan Calhanoglu

Hakan is overdue for a return to form. Fiorentina are one of his favourite opponents with 2 goals in 3 games. Let’s hope he strikes this evening or at least has a good game. When he is not performing, our attack looks toothless and void of ideas. We need the resurgence now and hopefully with Zlatan from minute one we can expect something big.

Franck Ribery

Ribery is a constant threat when facing us and enjoys to get the goals against us. He will also being going up against Dalot who is rather easy to beat defensively. Ribery will look to strike early and put Milan in a shock and containing him needs to be priority number one in the first half.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

It has been too long since I have seen an Ibrahimovic goal, it is staggering to think that it has been 43 days since we’ve seen him score despite having 15 goals in all competitions. Ibrahimovic looks set to start despite not being at full fitness but the situation is dire as Milan haven’t scored in the previous two games. The veteran striker looks sharp even in his short time against United and will want to be on target.

Prediction: Fiorentina 0 - 2 Milan
