AC Milan vs Fiorentina 29/11/20
AC Milan will be looking to maintain an unbeaten start to their Serie A campaign when they take on Fiorentina at the Stadio San Siro this weekend.
It’s been a hell of a start to the season for AC Milan, who enter this round topping the Serie A table as one of three sides yet to taste defeat (W6, D2). But, the hosts have gone from back-to-back home league victories to two consecutive draws despite scoring over 1.5 goals in each encounter. First-half performances have been an issue, as the ‘Rossoneri’ were leading at half-time in just one of their opening four home Serie A fixtures (HT: W1, D2, L1). Indeed, far more aggressive after the break, Stefano Pioli’s men have scored a league joint-high seven second-half goals at home, finding the net at least once beyond the 75th minute in each of their last three home outings.
In the meantime, Fiorentina take the field after failing to pick up the three points in any of their last three Serie A matches (D1, L2), drawing a blank on each occasion. Furthermore, the visitors have yet to win away from home this season (D2, L2), conceding over 1.5 goals in three of their four Serie A trips so far. It’s, however, worth noting that ‘La Viola’ conceded the opening goal (if any) just once across that four-game sequence. Indeed, they were trailing at half-time only once in that time (HT: W1, D2, L1). Fiorentina can also take some courage from the fact they have won both of their previous away top-flight H2Hs after losing three such contests in a row prior to that run.
