      Tip Reasoning

      AC Milan and Inter Milan are supposedly back, Napoli, Roma and Lazio are all contenders, but what’s happened to Fiorentina? In the early season discussions, they’ve been relegated to the role of “also-ran”. This is a team that finished fourth last season and wasn’t so far away from Champions League contention. It won’t take long for them to put themselves back on the map, all eyes in Italian football will be on their Sunday night clash with AC Milan.

      Paulo Sousa takes the place of Vincenzo Montella after three relatively successful seasons. He’s expected to bring a little more attacking edge to this side, but if history is anything to go by, perhaps a little additional defensive naivety as well.

      There’s been significant transition for Fiorentina over the summer as the Montella era ended and Sousa’s has begun. German international Mario Gomez has gone, but Borja Valero and Mario Suarez will bring plenty of punch and finish to this line-up.

      After finishing an inarguably miserable 10th last season. Most neutral fans are hoping for a return to true competitiveness from AC Milan. There’s a lot of optimism with many already declaring them to be true title contenders.

      During the summer, the club has added Alessio Romagnoli, midfield creator Andrea Bertolacci and prolific strikers Carlos Bacca and Luiz Adriano. The Rossoneri have particularly high hopes for young centre back Romagnoli, who impressed and played a pivotal role in Sampdoria’s seventh place finish last season. He is only 21, but he has been ear-marked as the next central pillar of Milan’s defence.

      Games that are hyped this much can very easily become disappointments. Sousa’s team is likely to attack, but new Milan manager Sinisa Mihajlovic will know that his team is relatively young and that travelling to Stadio Artemio Franchi and picking up a point would be no bad thing. As such our betting tips fully expect Milan to pick up at least point in this opening weekend encounter with the Asian Handicap odds offering the best value return at +0.5
