Inter will look to continue their comfortable run in Serie A vs Fiorentina, as they host their third game of the season. The Nerazzurri have picked up a couple of 2-0 victories and are having a smooth and steady start to the season, which is unlike them. However, Fiorentina will pose some tougher questions when they visit this weekend. The Viola are sitting on fifth with 4 points so far and have won against Rapid Wien in Conference league playoffs.
Fiorentina are looking to improve on their last season which saw them play out in two finals. However, the Viola lost Coppa Italia to Inter and Conference League to West Ham. However, competing in multiple tournaments can affect their domestic performance, as they play a couple of games in a week. The Viola will be coming to this game with some tired legs after Thursday’s match. Meanwhile, Inter will be fresh and ready to extend their unbeaten run.
Inter vs Fiorentina Serie A: team news, tactics, and prediction
The Nerazzurri have won two games with the same eleven, and Inzaghi would like to continue with that. Acerbi will also return to the squad, so Inzaghi has more cover at the back. Pavard will soon be incorporated into the team and might start ahead of Darmain in future games. But for the time being, Darmian should continue at the right center-back position. Also, Inter might have to push to higher gears against Fiorentina as they will pose more threat on the counter.
Fiorentina might look to shift some players around after their game on Thursday. Also, they will miss Antonin Barak and Gaetano Castrovilli due to their respective injury issues. Kouame could come in, and refresh the lineup as they travel to San Siro.
The Nerazzurri should edge past a relatively tired Fiorentina side. However, they might not get another 2-goal margin win this time.
