AC Milan will face Fiorentina tomorrow afternoon in front of a sold-out San Siro, with a fantastic atmosphere expected. It’s a huge game for the Rossoneri as they need to assert themselves at the top, following the win at Lazio.
Stefano Pioli and his men are currently two points ahead of city rivals Inter, who lost against Bologna mid-week. The Nerazzurri thus no longer have a game in hand and this means that Milan are in charge of the race once again.
As per Gazzetta Dello Sport (read full XI report here), Pioli has one battle to settle ahead of tomorrow’s clash and it’s the expected one: Franck Kessie vs. Brahim Diaz. The latter has struggled this season and that’s why the Ivorian currently is ahead.
The newspaper puts the battle at 60-40 in favour of Kessie, who has been an important player with his physique lately. Obviously, he’s not as technical as Diaz but he has shown that he can be of great value to Milan anyway.
