Pioli: Facing Fiorentina is a “key moment” of the season

Milan coach Stefano Pioli said on Friday that his undefeated team will face a defining moment in the season, when they visit the dangerous Fiorentina in the Italian Serie A on Saturday.

Milan is currently in second place, but is only behind the leaders Napoli, after scoring 32 points out of 36 possible points so far.

But he will face a perilous journey against Fiorentina, who are in seventh place, and have shown great development this season under coach Vincenzo Italiano.

Pioli said in a press conference, “The players know what awaits them. It will be a defining moment in the season. There are more important matches and tomorrow’s match is very important. The team has prepared well. Everyone feels enthusiasm, focus and determination.”

Pioli said striker Ante Rebic will be absent due to an injury he sustained in training, while full-back Davide Calabria was injured while playing for Italy.
