Fiorentina vs Internazionale Preview

Fiorentina vs Internazionale

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Stadio Artemio Franchi

Date: 5th January 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Inter Milan are in all sorts of trouble at the moment despite starting the season very well.

The Nerazzurri were top of the Serie A at some point this season but they are now seven points off the pace.

They have also exited the Coppa Italia against an AC Milan side that is in arguably in bigger trouble than they are.

They fired Fiorentina manager Stefan Pioli back in May and this game seems set up for him to get his much needed revenge.

Inter Milan are the fourth best converters of set plays in the league and Fiorentina are struggling to deal with set plays so Inter Milan could get chances to punish them in this game.

Fiorentina are not in the shape they should be for a team who are looking to play in Europe next season as they have just two wins from their last 8 league games.

They have also won less than half of their total games this season but they head into this game in better shape than when they first met in the season’s opening weeks.

AC Milan earned a 1-1 draw in this venue last time out which means the host have now netted in 89% of their home games this season and 67% of those have ended with both teams scoring.

The fact that three of the last four meetings between these sides have ended with both teams scoring could see them play out a thriller here again.
