and Canada)Live stream: beIN Sports Connect (U. and Canada)Up until that loss at Stadio Olimpico, Fiorentina were the Serie A team to beat. They had just ended Juventus' 47-game unbeaten home record, and they were playing breathtaking attacking football. Lazio hit them when they were out of breath, and a subsequent 1-1 draw at home in the Europa League against Roma only confirmed suspicions of a possible burnout.
The schedule right now is unforgiving for La Viola. It is undoubtedly their toughest spell: Seven matches in 22 days, a real sprint through the month of March. Fatigue at this point is an issue. A week ago, Lazio dismantled Fiorentina 4-0. It was an embarrassing setback for a club with fighting interests in the league, the Coppa Italia and the Europa League.

Fiorentina vs. AC Milan: Team News, Predicted Line-Ups, Live Stream & TV InfoGabriele Maltinti/Getty ImagesThe match on Monday against Fiorentina looks less than ideal for AC Milan. It pits them against a Champions League hopeful and a club competing on several fronts. Milan, meanwhile, are enduring a hard-enough time in only one campaign. These two teams are taking two different paths this season, but this meeting in Serie A is just as important to the both of them.
Luca Antonelli is one of the few constants in the team and he will continue to play left-back as long as Mattia De Sciglio remains out. Diego Lopez, as usual, will play in goal. Fiorentina have to make a few changes of their own. They are without striker Mario Gomez, midfielder David Pizarro and defender Stefan Savic—big losses in each area of the field. But they have depth. A back four consisting of Manuel Pasqual, Jose Basanta, Gonzalo Rodriguez and Micah Richards is more than serviceable.
