It’s almost the end of the season in Serie A and AC Milan are worried about their European future. They need a win over Fiorentina on Saturday in order to get one step closer to a spot in the Champions League. But, winning at the Stadio Artemio Franchi won’t be easy, at least judging by the previous duels of these two. This is why you better read this Fiorentina vs AC Milan prediction and betting tips if you want to put some money on this game.
They had a season they wish to forget. Only three matches are left to be played and Fiorentina are at the 13th place, without any chance of competing for a spot in Europe. Actually, their chance of getting above the 10th place is practically nonexistent.
And the worst thing of all is that they are in a pretty poor form. This team has lost 5 out of the previous 6 Serie A matches and the one match that they didn’t lose was a draw. The last time they won a game in the domestic league was in February when they played Spal.
They had their chance in the Italian Cup, in which they hammered Roma 7:1 in January. But, they lost to Atalanta in the semifinal of the cup. What this basically means is that their season is already over. They can’t achieve much in the remaining three rounds. But, on the bright side, at least they can’t get relegated. Because of all these things, our Fiorentina vs AC Milan prediction will not be in favor of the home team. The question is will AC Milan be able to grab all three points?
Unlike Fiorentina who have nothing to fight for, AC Milan have so much at stake. Ahead of the 36th round, they’re at the 5th spot on Serie A table, which is the one that leads to the group stage of Europa League. The bad news is that there are several teams that could leapfrog them before the end of the season.
Apart from having the motivation to prevent other teams from taking their position, AC Milan also have the motivation for getting among the top 4. Atalanta, the team that’s at the 4th place, currently has only 3 points more than them. And Atalanta play against Lazio, Juve, and Sassuolo till the end of the season. This means that AC Milan’s chances of getting to the Champions League seem pretty decent.
Of course, in order to get there, they need to win as many points as possible. And in the game with Fiorentina on Saturday, they want all three of them. The bad news is that their away form has been pretty poor. The good news is that they don’t have too serious problems with injuries. And that’s why Fiorentina vs AC Milan betting tips will lead towards the team from Milano.
