The first weekend form Serie A gives us a marquee match up as the new look Milan travel to take on a rejuvenated Fiorentina. New Milan boss Mijhalovich will be under pressure straight away to get results as Milan look to go back to competing for Serie A titles and getting back into the Champions League. A disappointing season last year cost Pippo Inzaghi his job but Milan have been active in the transfer market this season in have come Sevilla striker Bacca, Shakhtar striker Adriano and Milan now look to have a squad capable of going for the Serie A title but they will need a good start and they will need to really up their performance levels as they face a Juventus squad that have been sensational domestically for the last three years.
Fiorentina though are favourites for this game and probably deservedly so, they welcome back star man Guiseppi Rossi who has come back to the club and still looks like the top class striker he was before his knee injuries. Rossi is a player that any side could be built around and Fiorentina will be hoping that he can fire them to the top of Serie A and back into the Champions League as the fans long for the days of Batigol and match ups with Barcelona and Manchester United. This is a Fiorentina side that definitely have the talent to compete at the top end and they will be looking to get off to a flyer here against one of their biggest rivals for Champiosn League football.
This one should be a cracker and is one I have personally pencilled in to get a look at as I think we have two really exciting teams here and this should be a really good match up. I'm taking both teams to score here and for those looking for a result I think the draw looks a good bet here, I am finding it hard to split them based on the match up and the 5/2 looks good value.
