Leaders Inter will visit the Stadio Artemio Franchi to take on Fiorentina in Serie A on Sunday.
Inter Milan Match Form
Antonio Conte’s men will be looking for the win as they aim to get over the Champions League heartbreak from Wednesday. They faced a weakened Barcelona side at the San Siro in the final group stage game. A win would have sent them through at the expense of Borussia Dortmund. Barcelona took the lead through Carles Perez, but Inter hit back via Romelu Lukaku. They had the ball in the net multiple times after that, but it was ruled out for offside each time.
Ansu Fati scored late for Barca to hand them the win and leave Inter in tears. They will play in the Europa League now as Dortmund made the Champions League knockouts. The Serie A is the top priority now as they will aim to end Juventus’ monopoly at the top. Inter are two points clear in the first place as it stands, and the title race is far from over. They have lost just one league game all season, and it was against Juventus.
Last week Juventus suffered their first loss of the Serie A season as Lazio beat them. That result meant that Inter increased their lead at the top. Inter hosted Roma in their last league game, and teams played out a goalless draw. It was another clean sheet for Inter, who have the league’s strongest defence. No other side has conceded fewer goals than their 13 in the Serie A.
Fiorentina Match Form
Fiorentina are 13th in the table, and they are woefully out of form. Their last league win came against Sassuolo in October. Since then, they have lost four out of the five league games, Fiorentina did win a Coppa Italia tie against Cittadella in between, but the poor league form has continued. Last week they fell to a 2-1 defeat at Torino.
Despite dominating the possession, they only managed to get a consolation goal in stoppage time. It was their fourth consecutive league loss. The winless run is slowly taking Fiorentina closer to the relegation zone. They are five points above Genoa who are in 18th place. Manager Vincenzo Montella will want to stop this slide immediately to avoid the danger of relegation. Montella’s second spell as Fiorentina manager has not gone smoothly, and he needs to turn his side’s fortunes quickly.
Inter have had the edge in the head to head record against Fiorentina. They have lost just once in the last six league meetings. The only win for Fiorentina came by virtue of a crazy 5-4 scoreline. The last meeting between these two sides ended in a 3-3 draw in February.
Inter Milan vs Fiorentina Betting Tips
Inter are much improved this season, and they will be the favorites to win against Fiorentina. It will be a tight game, and the total goals should be Under 2.5. Inter are strong defensively, and they will bounce back after the loss against Barcelona.
