Internazionale vs Fiorentina Preview

Internazionale vs Fiorentina

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Stadio Giuseppe Meazza

Date: 25th September 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Inter Milan come into this midweek game after earning two impressive consecutive wins, and Luciano Spalletti will be hoping that his players can keep the momentum going as they look to finish inside the top four again.

Inter beat Tottenham 2-1 in the Champions and followed that up with another win over Sampdoria on Saturday, but Fiorentina pose a different challenge for them.

Inter’s last two wins have shown that this team doesn’t lack character, however, the last time they played at home in the league, they were beaten 1-0 by Parma, so they have a point to prove to their fans as Fiorentina come to town.

Fiorentina have made a solid start to this new league season and they come into this game sitting in 3rd position in the league table.

Their explosive start to the season has seen them collect 10 points from their first 5 league games, and they should be in confident mood when they take to the field for this game.

With AS Roma struggling for form, they would feel that they can finish inside the top four, however, they have to improve their away record quickly to stand any chance.

La Viola seem to struggle when they visit teams who finished above them last season.

They were well beaten by Juventus, Milan and Inter Milan on the road last season, with Inter winning this fixture 3-0 last season.

While bookmakers don’t expect the result to be as emphatic as that, they might struggle to come out and attack Inter, and they have a bad record whenever they play their hosts.

Inter have 15 wins from their last 17 home games against Fiorentina, and the last two times La Viola came visiting ended in home wins with 7 goals scored by the host.

Bookmakers have priced Inter up as odds-on favourites to come out on top while goal markets suggest this could be a lively affair.
