Ahead of the most important meeting against Fiorentina in Week 35 of the Italian League, AC Milan is faced with an emotional meeting with their three former pillars.
AC Milan will face the most important match against Fiorentina in the 35th week of the 2021/22 Italian League at the San Siro, Sunday (01/05/22) tonight.
I Rossoneri are in full confidence after the win against Lazio and at the same time Inter Milan lost to Bologna.
The three are Giacomo Bonaventura, Krzysztof Piatek, and Riccardo Saponara. Of the three names, Bonaventura is the most loyal to AC Milan.
Unfortunately, Bonaventure’s contract was not extended. While Piatek and Saponara failed to show good performances and had to leave faster than the San Siro.
Although dealing with the former, it does not mean Milan ‘benefited’. In fact, these three players are important players for Fiorentina this season.
Of course, on the basis of professionalism, they are ready to achieve maximum results against AC Milan. That means, they can thwart the dream of the Scudetto by stealing points at the San Siro.
This season, Bonaventura has made 27 appearances in the Italian League with 3 goals and 7 assists. Despite this impressive record, Bonaventura is an experienced player and knows more or less the AC Milan kitchen.
While Krzysztof Piatek, although not arguably a fertile bomber, but he has scored at least 3 goals in 11 appearances for Fiorentina this season.
With high motivation to prove his capacity in front of the Rossoneri, Piatek can be a deadly weapon for Fiorentina in tonight’s match.
While Riccardo Saponara is also quite instrumental for Fiorentina. The player who plays as an attacking midfielder has contributed 3 goals and 3 assists for La Viola this season.

Because, Fiorentina is experiencing a decline in performance.
In their last three matches, Fiorentina have always lost.
AC Milan’s chance to win is also inseparable from the poor results of its closest competitor in the postponed match against Bologna in the middle of last week.
It was a saving match for Inter Milan to be able to overtake AC Milan’s points in the Italian League standings table.
If able to win, Inter Milan will shift AC Milan in the top position with a one point advantage. Currently, AC Milan leads with 74 points.
Inter Milan is second with 72 points. If they win, Inter Milan’s point acquisition cannot be pursued with a one lift advantage in the remaining four matches if both teams are able to wipe out the victory.
Simone Inzaghi’s Inter Milan returned from Renato Dall’Ara with a 1-2 defeat.
The Nerazzurri actually could have taken the lead quickly via Ivan Perisic’s goal when the game had only been running for three minutes. \
Austrian national team striker who once wore Inter uniform, Marko Arnautovic, brought Bologna equalized in the 28th minute with a header.
Then Bologna grabbed the three points thanks to Nicola Sansone’s goal in the final minutes of the second half. The score 2-1 changed until the end of the game. The result gave AC Milan the upper hand.
They must be able to control the team’s performance to consistently win in the remaining matches, if they are not willing to let the Scudetto fall into the hands of their city rivals, Inter Milan this season.
At that time they were champions with a 6-point advantage over rivals Inter Milan.
