Fiorentina vs Inter: Preview and Predictions
Inter Milan seem to be losing ground on the likes of Juventus and Napoli in the battle for the very top of the Serie A standings. Nerazzurri are now seven points below the leaders from Naples after a series of four straight matches withozt a win. The latest of the failures happened last weekend when Mauro Icardi & company could not break the deadlock against Lazio in a goalless draw at Giuseppe Meazza.
To make thing worse for Luciano Spalletti, his men are to make the trip to Florence to play the in-form Fiorentina side in Friday’s clash of the Matchday No 20 at Arteio Franchi. Viola have been very tough to break down lately and they’ll head into this unbeaten in seven league ties. The streak saw them concede just a single goal in last five matches (Milan’s equalizer in the last weekend’s 1-1 draw).
The man who’ll be especially motivated to grab the win here is Fiorentina’s head coach Stefano Pioli who is about to come face to face to his former team. Pioli’s reign at Giuseppe Meazza has been anything but successful, but he has been doing a decent job since taking charge of Fiorentina.
If we count Coppa Italia fixtures, Inter have scored just a single goal in last six matches (including the embarrassing goalless draw with Pordenone and a 1-0 loss to their arch-rivals Milan).
Fiorentina vs Inter: Predictions
Fiorentina are definitely the form favourites and we can easily see them continuing with the fine defensive showings this Friday.
Inter have really found it tough to produce up front in recent weeks. If we know that Fiorentina conceded just a single goal in last five league fixtures, backing Viola to keep a clean sheet is a must-take bet at the odds of 3.50.

Fiorentina vs Inter: Head-to-head
The head to head stats speak in Inter’s favour, but they have only come out on top in six of 22 matches at Artemio Franchi.
Each of last five H2H clashes offered goal fests, including Fiorentina’s 5-4 win in a nine-goal thriller in Florence back in April this year.
Nerazzurri took a commanding 3-0 victory when the two sides met in this term of Serie A at Giuseppe Meazza.
