The Rossoneri were given an unexpected boost in midweek by Inter's blunder against Bologna. If Milan defeat Vincenzo Italiano's Fiorentina - who were on the end of a 4-0 mauling themselves on Wednesday - they can open up a five-point gap before Inter's match away to Udinese.

Here's everything you need to know as the title race speeds towards its conclusion.

Milan team news

For the visit of his former club, Stefano Pioli is likely to be without Alessandro Florenzi and Simon Kjaer as the pair recover from knee injuries.

Ismael Bennacer also missed last weekend's late win over Lazio (another past Pioli employer) with a sprained ankle. The midfielder returned to a form of light, individual training in the week leading up to Sunday's game but is a doubt.

Fiorentina team news

Fiorentina's ephemeral midfielder Gaetano Castrovilli had his season - and a fair chunk of the following campaign - curtailed with an ACL injury against Venezia in mid-April. The 25-year-old has undergone reconstructive surgery but isn't expected to return for another eight months at the earliest.

Lucas Torreira managed to shake off a bruised hip to appear in La Viola's dispiriting defeat against Udinese on Wednesday.

Milan vs Fiorentina score prediction

Fiorentina were the first team to defeat Milan in Serie A this season, ending a 12-game unbeaten sequence with a 4-3 win in the chaotic style Italiano's side have often offered this term.

However, five-and-a-half months on, Milan have morphed into a side very much opposed to any such mayhem. The Rossoneri have kept six clean sheets in their last seven games with the gifted young duo of Fikayo Tomori and Pierre Kalulu forging a promising partnership at centre-back.

As a first title in more than a decade crawls ever closer, Milan may once again lean upon their defensive resolve this weekend.

Prediction: Milan 1-0 Fiorentina
