Milan will be hoping to seal their place in next season’s Europa League as they host an inconsistent Fiorentina at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Sunday. The Rossoneri will be slight favourites against a Florence-based side who have lost three of their last five outings but conversely have won eight of 12.

Milan vs. Fiorentina Predictions and Preview
Milan’s recent wins over Bologna and Hellas Verona were their first victories after a six-game winless run as any hopes of a Champions League place have slipped from their grasp.
They sit one point ahead of seventh-placed Atalanta, who they drew with last time out, as they attempt to qualify for the Europa League for next season.
The Viola’s late push for a European spot have been derailed completely with three defeats in their last five including a shock 1-0 home loss to relegation-threatened Cagliari last week.
Following the death of captain Davide Astori, the club can be forgiven for wanting to put this season behind them and begin to rebuild for next campaign but will look to go out with a bang.
The hosts are favourites to win this game at odds of 20/23, with an away win available at 16/5 and the draw priced at 14/5.
Under 2.5 goals is available at 5/4 while fewer than 1.5 goals is priced at 15/4.
A ‘double chance’ on the away side to battle their way to either a point or a win is available at 1.
If you fancy the hosts to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 21/10.
One to watch for Milan: 20-year-old striker Patrick Cutrone is the dangerman for the Milanese giants and is their highest league scorer with seven goals to date.
One to watch for Fiorentina: Giovanni Simeone, son of Atletico Madrid boss Diego, has 13 Serie A goals so far in his debut season for La Viola and scored in the corresponding fixture earlier in the campaign.
Long shot: Milan have failed to score in three of their last eight games and have not conceded more than once in a game in that run, while Fiorentina have seven clean sheets in 12. A scoreless draw available at odds of 14/1.
