Inter will travel to Florence to take on Fiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Tuesday for the midweek clash. Both sides are in top form and have beaten their opponents in previous fixtures.

Inter thrashed Bologna 6-1 while Fiorentina outclassed Genoa 2-1.

Izanghi handed Denzel Dumfries his first start in Serie A and the wing-back did not disappoint. The dutchman put up a man-of-the-match-like performance on his debut for Inter.

He spoke to the media and said: “I feel good. Inzaghi has asked to play high up the pitch and attack as much as possible. My teammates have helped me out and welcomed me to the club. I’m thrilled and proud to be here.  I’m studying and it’s getting better every day.”

Statistics & Encounters

Fiorentina’s last win against Inter came all the way back in April of 2017.

In the last eight games, Inter has won 4 and drawn 4.

Fiorentina has won three consecutive games in a Serie A season for the first time since October 2019.

Inter have scored in every one of their last 23 matches in Serie A. If they find the net against Vincenzo Italiano’s Fiorentina side, they will equal their best-ever Serie A scoring streak (24 matches in the 1949/50 season, under the management of Giulio Cappelli).
