AC Milan vs Fiorentina Prediction

AC Milan have been in fine form in Serie A this season. They are unbeaten in the league so far, and much of their success has been down to the form of veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. With the Sweden international unable to feature on Sunday, it remains to be seen how manager Stefano Pioli sets up his team.

Fiorentina, on the other hand, have some talented players in the squad, including Nikola Milenkovic, Sofyan Amrabat and Gaetano Castrovilli. They have struggled in the league this season, and will have to be at their very best to get a result against Milan.

Milan are in excellent form. However, the loss of Ibrahimovic could prove to be crucial, and we are forecasting a draw on Sunday.
