Fiorentina host AC Milan at the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Sunday as the Rossoneri look to bounce back from their European disappointment.

Milan were knocked out of the Europa League on Thursday when they lost 1-0 to Manchester United at the San Siro.

The tie was intriguingly poised at 1-1 after the first leg, and Milan did have their chances in the second leg.

However, Paul Pogba's goal just after halftime proved to be the decisive one in the tie, and sent Milan out of the competition.

Even in Serie A, their recent form has seen Milan well and truly tail off in the title race.

In fact, if Juventus win their game in hand, it would see the Rossoneri drop down to third position. They are currently nine points behind league leaders Inter Milan.

In their last Serie A match, Matteo Politano scored the only goal as Milan lost 1-0 to Napoli in a match that also saw Ante Rebic sent off.

Fiorentina are currently 14th in Serie A, and have just 29 points from 27 games. However, they did win their last game away at Benevento.

Dusan Vlahovic scored a hat-trick for the Viola in tgameame, as they brushed aside Benevento in a 4-1 win.
