AC Milan (@2.1) vs Fiorentina (@3.5)

Our Prediction:

AC Milan will win

AC Milan – Fiorentina Match Prediction | 29-09-2019 14:45

The AC Milan midfielder got a three-match ban following his red card against Bologna and the season is over for him. He avoided serious injury but could miss the Saturday showdown. Lucas Biglia was forced off less than a half an hour into the Rossoneris 2-1 win over Bologna due to a bruised hip. Furthermore, the visitors will be without Lucas Paqueta.

Milan boss Gattuso apparently has three games left to save his job following the slip up against Bologna. Those three games come in the next seven days. That means that Milan could be appointing a new boss in 2019, which lines up with rumours that Arsene Wenger was set to take over in the New Year. After they drew 0-0 in a dour meeting with the third-bottom side, the current boss faces a crucial week.

Gennaro Gattusos men have everything to fight for against the seemingly unmotivated hosts. The visitors are three points behind Atalanta in the top-four race and will be going full strength from the off. There have been goals on both sides in three of the last five meetings of these two sides. In that regard, we expect to see the same but still believe the visitors have enough about them to claim all three points. This dramatically affects our correct score prediction. The lack of incentives could prove to be the home teams advantage, and we widely expect Fiorentina to take advantage of AC Milans imperative.

AC Milan vs Fiorentina Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews

With his days in charge of Milan reportedly numbered once again, can Gennaro Gattuso claim a win this weekend? They missed a huge chance to move clear in the top four race in midweek, which has added to the malaise around the former midfielder. Will he lead his side to a victory this weekend, or can Fiorentina cause a shock? The visitors are still in contention for a European place, so they cant afford a slip here.

The Purples are struggling to find their rhythm and will once again face a daunting task this weekend. European places are also too far away and the hosts will have nothing more than their pride to play for against the Rossoneri. They are sitting in 13th place in the standings and are safe from relegation. The team morale is worryingly low, and it appears as if the players wish the season could end now. Our betting prediction is not inclined towards the home side, however. The Mighty Tips experts see little value in betting on the hosts.

With that on the horizon and really poor form backing them up ahead of this game, its hard to have much confidence in the hosts. The hosts are now down in 13th place in Serie A, following a dismal end to the season. That basically ended their interest in the season, so Fiorentina are looking ahead to a summer which is likely to bring major restructuring at the club. Theyve been in rotten form for months, which includes crashing out of the Coppa Italia semis. Fiorentina are the next side standing between Milan and fourth.

Matches between the two teams traditionally bring plenty of excitement and our match prediction for the Saturdays clash offers excellent betting options. The Purples have endured a challenging run in the Serie A recently. On the other side, the Rossoneri recovered from back-to-back defeats with a 2-1 win over Bologna and will be keen to continue the trend. La Viola is coming off from a four-match losing run and will be extremely motivated to try and turn things around.

Stadio San Siro will host Saturdays football game between Milan and Fiorentina. Gonzalo Higuain has yet to find his best form, but the opposition defenders should have the former Real Madrid attacker at bay. Genaro Gattusos men suffered a shocking elimination in the Europa League, meaning that they will be fully focused on the national championship in the remainder of the season. The former Milan midfielder is likely to field the best possible side against Fiorentina and seeing that the Viola are not regarded as good travelers, we predict that the hosts are going to emerge triumphant in Saturdays clash. You should bear in mind that in their last meeting at Stadio San Siro Milan crushed Fiorentina 5-1. The Rossoneri aim to stay in the race for a place in the Champions League, whilst the Viola want to build on a 3-1 win over Empoli in the local derby.

Milan come into this game in mixed form, but theyll sense an opportunity. On paper, Fiorentina is their most difficult remaining game. They have the easiest three games of any side left in the top four race, starting with this one. Thats a 13 game winless streak, while theyve failed to win a home league game in 2019. However, they are facing a side who last won on February 17th.

With a complex financial situation dragging on behind the scenes, returning to Europes biggest competition is huge. Theyve fallen into the busy mix for a European place, with the Rossoneri currently on course to settle for a Europa League spot once again. Milan have struggled to make their mark on Serie A this term, having let their grip on fourth place slip. They laid out their ambitions to Gattuso earlier this season Champions League or bust. That means the pressure is on the visitors to end this season on a high.

How we calculate our stats

Theyve seen far too many draws so far, which suggests that a struggling Milan side could end up with another point. Their great start to the season took a hit with their failure to succeed on the road. Thats despite losing just four times in 16 matches. This season, Fiorentina have failed to claim a win away from home. However, we can see the hosts coming away with a win this weekend. The visitors may have picked up three points, but their away issues are far from fixed.

Gennaro Gattuso will use his trademark methods to motivate his team. This betting preview takes all key elements into account and the H2H record between the Saturdays rivals does offer a promise of an exciting match. The lack of consistency in the league could prove to be a problem for the visiting side, however. The Rossoneri have been alternating between all three match outcomes recently and will be hoping to get back-to-back wins for the first time since March.
