After great performance in Champions League semifinal second leg against Manchester Milan will face Fiorentina in next Calcio round. Rosonerri are currently sitting on third table position and have only one point more then fourth Lazio. Third place means Champions League matches next season. Both teams were banned this season and third place is the big success. Milan hopes that they will take Champions League this season and that they will played in this competition even they lost battle for the third position.
In match against to Viola they will try to collect new three points and keep one point advantage. They will have hard work to do. It is very hard to play on the same high level several Situs Qiu Qiu matches in few days. They didn’t impress in Torino but who thinks about Torino after great midweek match. Last week Kaka was on the bench and now is expected that he will take his place back while Seedorf will take a break. Maybe the most important change in Milans squad will be Ronaldo who can’t play in Champions League matches but he was one of the key players in Milans last Serie A matches. He played very well and he is very important for team. Ancelloti will make few changes more. Some of them are enforced but some are based on form. Yoann Gourcuff replaced Massimo Ambrosini at half-time in the game with Toro and that is likely to be a change made from the start this time.
On the other hand Fiorentina has European ambitions and they will try to catch UEFA Cup place. They need to continue with good results if they want to keep sixth table position and maybe overtake Palermo who has two points more. Toni will leave a club next summer to join Bayern and after that was announced everybody talks about Pazzini. It is expected that he could replace Toni. Young winger impress football fans with three goals in U21 match between Italy and England recently. He will take part in this match while Toni will sit on the bench due a injury problems. Key man in Viola squad could be Martin Jorgensen who will replace Tomas Ujfalusi.
Anyway I expect very hard match with main battle in the midfield. If some of Milans stars has inspiration it will be a hard task for Viola, but it is hard to believe that they could repeat CL performance in a few days. Milan has advantage here and Viola will try to stay unbeaten. One point against Milan will be enough for them and they will try with defensive tactics. On the other hand Milan will try to win but they won’t press to hard and one goal could decide the match. Under 2,5 is the best choice I think, and odds are fine.
