Fiorentina will be hoping that Alexandre Pato doesn’t play against them in Week 12 given his superb scoring record for Milan at the Stadio Franchi.
The Brazilian should again be available for selection after recovering from a muscle strain which saw him sidelined for 50 days.
Pato has fond memories of games in Florence given that he seems to be the club’s lucky charm in this Serie A tie.
In four meetings at the Franchi, Pato has rippled the net on four occasions. Take into account the time spent on the pitch and he averages a goal every 56 minutes in that arena.
To make matters worse for the Viola, and new boss Delio Rossi, Milan have always won when he’s scored in this particular clash.
The striker has a great scoring record in Serie A overall given that he’s netted 50 goals in just 105 appearances for the Rossoneri.
