Tip AC Milan - Fiorentina
Milan are at the top of the Serie A and have a good chance to extend their leadership with a home game against Fiorentina in the ninth round of matches this Sunday. A fine start to the season has Milan at the Serie A summit with 20 points while Fiorentina are placed 15th after garnering eight points so far. Milan are one of the three unbeaten sides in the Serie A and are the second-best scorers as well as defensive side after eight matches, with 19 goals scored and eight conceded. They however have no clean sheet in their last five matches and have only managed one in the last 13. Heading to this game, they played a 1-1 draw in France, away to Lille in the Europa League and hope to continue with the fine run in Serie A. In their last league game, they had a dominant display against Napoli, winning 3-1 and having scored in 14 of their last 15 matches, they will be very confident heading to the Fiorentina clash. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been the main man in attack for Milan, scoring eight goals in the last five matches and after his brace against Napoli, he was rested for the midweek game and will be a man to watch on Sunday. Milan are winless in their last two home matches, having lost to Lille in the Europa League and drawn with Hellas Verona, but they are unbeaten in the last 10 home matches in the league, with seven wins registered. In nine of the last 10 league matches, Milan have scored two goals or more and head to head, each of these two sides has two wins in the last six meetings.
Fiorentina, on the other hand, managed to end their winless streak with a 1-0 extra time victory over Udinese in the Coppa Italia. They have two wins in the last five matches, both coming in the Coppa Italia and their two clean sheets in the last nine matches have also come in the cup competition. In Serie A, it has been tough; the team has no win in the last three league matches, and only one win in the last seven. It has not been rosy for Fiorentina in the league, as they have managed only two clean sheets in their eight matches, and go to this game with no goal scored in the last three league games.
