Fiorentina – Milan möts på lördag 2011-11-19 med matchstart kl. 20:45.
Det här blir en tuff match med tanke på att Fiorentina har hemmaplan men möter ett Milan som normalt är det bättre laget. Dessutom har det nu varit ett uppehåll i och med landskamparna senaste veckan och Zlatan har varit väldigt osynlig i båda matcherna, kanske har han den nya boken i tankarna? Om man ska våga sig på ett speltips på matchen måste vi nog titta närmare på hur det diskuteras kring drabbningen mellan Fiorentina – Milan.
Så här säger Milans coach Massimiliano Allegri på en press konferens inför Fiorentina-Milan:
”I think it’s important to start well after this break, but I also believe that the team showed maturity after the last break and especially in the last game we played at home against Catania. We have the injured players back and we know this is an important month heading towards the Christmas break. We want to get to the break with the most points possible in order to stay at the top of the table.
“Fiorentina have a new coach and they will have regained enthusiasm and we have to play well to take away an important result from Florence, which is what counts. It is another time in the season, but it’s an important game and very a complicated one.
”Dealing with Delio Rossi’s team is always difficult because with Palermo and Lazio he did great things. But beyond that Fiorentina are a very technical and tactical side who have renewed enthusiasm so they will create problems.
”From now until December we have to aim to stay near the top, this team has the strength to do it because it showed that with the results over the last month. You have to play with great technique and be switched, there is no use thinking about Barcelona. We have eight complicated games ahead of us and we are coming off the break and anything can happen. We are already into the next round of the Champions League so tomorrow is more important than Barcelona where we will be playing top of the group in a match between the two most important clubs in the world. But for now we are thinking about tomorrow.
”Emanuelson has taken a knock to the ankle, but he should be available, we will evaluate it in training today. Doubts are Ambrosini and Van Bommel (who trained yesterday but did not play in the training match, then we must consider Emanuelson, depending he is: he may be the attacking midfielder or Seedorf might be or wide on the left. Aquilani will play tomorrow.
”Pato has not played for two months, he is very well physically, even after two months of inactivity, he has been training very well and is fit, but obviously it is a risk to play him from the start because he does not have 90 minutes in his legs and then the changes from the bench will be important. It doesn’t seem as if Pato is holding back and he is eager to return as are we because we needs goals from Pato. As with all young players who have great skill Pato must understand that they need to be ready and fully exploit their qualities. To do this you need the right mindset and a willingness to improve and the experienced players in this Milan are a prime example. Although they have won so a lot they never take anything for granted and are always ready and willing. The only way to improve is not to take anything for granted and if you don’t then you lose your direction.
”Ibrahimovic also set up a lot of goals the last year. He is very well physically and that the team benefits from that. I think that in respect to last year Ibrahimovic has played less and has expended a lot less energy. This year Pato and Robinho have been out for two months so they are fresher but Ibrahimovic is in good shape and has proved to be in the form in recent games.
”Jovetic is young but has great quality, if he plays he will cause us problems.
Med tanke på dessa ord från Allegri där de flesta Milan spelarna verkar tillgängliga förutom då möjligen Ambrosini och van Bommel så satsar Spelsajten en slant på Milan seger till oddset 2,15 hos Betsson.
