AC Milan welcome Fiorentina to the San Siro on Saturday night hoping to claim all three points as they bid to cut the 13-point gap to third place.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side have struggled domestically this season, and the threat of missing out on the Champions League next year is a very real danger at this stage given the form of the top three.
While Roma have won all 10 of their opening games, both Napoli and Juventus have shown no signs of slowing down their chase of top spot and have opened up an early lead over their rivals.
In contrast, the Rossoneri have the least amount of wins in the top 10 sides in Serie A, and have also conceded the most from the same group of teams.
With Mattia De Sciglio ruled out, their leaky defence is set to be further tested by Giuseppe Rossi and the Viola and it remains to be seen whether or not Vincenzo Montella’s side can exact some revenge on their rivals after missing out on the Champions League on the last day of the season last year.
The degree of animosity between the two clubs has gradually increased over the years, and the visitors have a decent record at San Siro in recent times.
Fiorentina will look to dominate possession and dictate the tempo of the game, and it will be a real test of Allegri’s management to avoid yet another disappointing result.
