The Viola secured an impressive fourth-place finish in Serie A for the third season running under the guidance of former Italy international Montella. However, less than two weeks after beating Chievo in their final match of the campaign, Montella was sacked by the club and accused of showing them a lack of respect. They reacted quickly by bringing in former Swansea City manager Sousa from Swiss champions Basel, and the Portuguese coach has made some important changes to the squad. It was a truly miserable season for AC Milan last term, as they finished a dismal 10th in the Serie A table and missed out on a place in Europe for the second season in a row. Their final position in the league represented their worst finish for 17 years and ended up costing manager Inzaghi his job after just one season in charge. Milan have a poor record in the most recent clashes between the teams, and they have won just one of their last seven games. Four of those have been won by Fiorentina, and they came from behind to clinch a 2-1 victory in the last meeting back in March.
