Prediction and odds for the game: Fiorentina (23/10) vs Milan (6/5)
We are backing the away win
When: Saturday 20 November 2021, Kick-off 19:45
Where: The Stadio Artemio Franchi
On Saturday night, AC Milan will look to keep pace with leaders Napoli at the top of the Serie A table, as the Rossoneri visit inconsistent Fiorentina.
The Viola have hit a spot of inconsistent form of late, as a 1-0 defeat at Juventus last time out means that the team from Florence has won three and lost five of their previous eight outings in Serie A. Despite that recent inconsistent league form, Vincenzo Italiano’s team are still seventh place in the table and a point shy of the European spots.
One player who has risen above his team’s inconsistency this season is Serbian striker Dusan Vlahovic. The 21-year-old has scored eight times in his 12 Serie A appearances this season. His potency in front of goal has come of little surprise, as he netted 21 times in the Italian top-flight last season.
Fiorentina’s recent mixed form is illustrated by the Viola’s home form of late in Serie A, as they have won three and lost three of their previous six league outings at the Franchi.
The Rossoneri head into this clash second -place in the table, but only trailing Napoli on goal difference, as the two have yet to meet to determine who has the head-to-head advantage.
The men from Milan have a seven-point lead on arch-rivals Inter, who head into this weekend’s action in third place. The Nerazzurri face Napoli at the Giuseppe Meazza on Sunday night, so could do their city rivals a favour with a win.
Stefano Pioli’s team are unbeaten in their 12 Serie A matches this season, while recording ten wins in the process. A 1-1 draw against Inter before the international break ended a seven-game winning run for the visitors.
One of the key factors in Milan’s form this season has been their potency in attack, as they have scored at least two goals in eight of their 12 league matches in Serie A.
Milan have been exceptional on their travels dating back to the end of last season. The Rossoneri are unbeaten in nine away games in Serie A, having recorded eight wins in the process. They have also recorded four straight away wins in the Italian top-flight, while scoring at least two goals in each win.
You never quite know what you are going to get with Fiorentina. However, the Viola have struggled against the better teams in the league so far this season. We are backing Milan to record to have too much quality for Italiano’s team. The other bet we are backing is over 2.5 goals, as the Rossoneri tend to be prolific on their travels, while Fiorentina’s home games have also been high-scoring of late.
Our Tips: We are backing the Milan win at odds of 6/5 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 4/5. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
