LAST MEETING



November 20, 2010: Milan 1-0 Fiorentina


Fiorentina looked good in the opening stages but couldn't convert their chances and paid the price when Zlatan Ibrahimovic acrobatically volleyed home from inside the penalty area just before the half-time break.

Per Kroldrup summed up the Viola's frustrations when he received his second yellow card for dissent late in the game.

The 28-year-old striker will be very eager to score against his former club on Sunday. The Italian has 11 goals to his name including one last weekend against Cesena and he would love nothing more than to put a dent in the Rossoneri's title plans.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic

The Swede is set to return from a ban on Sunday and will look to make up for lost time with a spirited showing against Fiorentina. Massimiliano Allegri will count on the 29-year-old to provide the firepower upfront and keep their title chase on course.
Prediction
Fiorentina are enjoying a good run at the moment but have a dreadful record in their past ten Serie A games with Milan. The league leaders are riding high following their derby day dismantling of Inter and will do just enough to squeak out a tough win in Tuscany.
