The Nerazzurri will be looking to defend the Coppa Italia title in Fiorentina vs Inter tomorrow. While the Viola are looking to end their 22-year trophy drought. They last won the Coppa Italia back in 2001, under Roberto Mancini. The Nerazzurri have been swamped with crucial games off late. They have a chance to make it their most successful season after 2010’s treble. But they face Fiorentina, who are also preparing for a European final.
The Nerazzurri have been a completely different team in the knockout games under Inzaghi. They managed to beat their eternal rivals AC Milan to reach the Champions League finals. Also, they went past their old foes Juventus in the Coppa Italia semi-finals. So Inter would hope their recent defeat to Napoli in Serie A will not hinder their otherwise brilliant form. Moreover, Inzaghi will line up his strongest eleven to defend the title.Fiorentina have picked up form towards the end of the season and could create history if they manage to win both finals.
Fiorentina vs Inter Coppa Italia team news, tactics, and prediction
Inzaghi will bring his big guns back for the Coppa Italia final. However, according to reports, Handanovic could start between the posts. Inzaghi would have to start Brozovic as Mkhitaryan is still recovering from his thigh injury.
Vincenzo Italiano fields some unpredictable formations as Fiorentina are flexible in their tactical setup. The Italian manager rested some of his key players on the weekend for this game. So Amrabat, Biraghi, and Cabral should start this game. Arthur Cabral is their top scorer, and Inter will have to be wary of him. The Viola will miss Sirigu as his season is done after the Achilles injury.
Fiorentina would pose a threat on the counter, but Inter should defend their title as their key players return to the lineup.
Fiorentina 1-2 Inter Milan.
