Fiorentina handed important boost for Milan clash amid defensive crisis

By Isak Möller -

Next weekend, AC Milan will take on Fiorentina away from home and it should be a tricky game for the Rossoneri. There is no doubt, however, that they are the favourites especially as the home side have some absences. 

Nikola Milenkovic and Lucas Martinez Quarta are suspended and seeing as they are the starting centre-backs, that’s a huge blow for Fiorentina. To make matters worse, centre-back Matija Nastasic is struggling with an injury and could also miss out.

It’s not all bad for La Viola, though, as Nicolas Gonzalez has tested negative for Covid-19. He has started the season well with three goals and two assists in all competitions, so having him back will be important for the home side.

The defence could struggle but if the attackers are up for it, they could compensate for that. As said, though, Milan are the big favourites to take home the three points next weekend.
