After what looks like a successful recovery back into form, Simone Inzaghi’s high-flying Inter will fly to Florence this weekend. The Fiorentina vs Inter fixture comes at a crucial time for the Nerazzurri. Inzaghi’s side are desperately chasing a top-four spot if not an inspiring challenge for the Scudetto. And at this stage of the season, every point has the value of its weight in gold.
With a Champions League slot in the Round of 16 more or less confirmed, Inter will travel to Stadio Armetio Franchi before their European clash with Victoria Plzen. With Romelu Lukaku set to miss yet another game, Inzaghi will look up to Lautaro Martinez who will be all the more keen to carry his form into this game. An exciting fixture awaits us on Saturday night!
Fiorentina vs Inter: Is it show time?
Inter have really found their form since losing to Jose Mourinho’s Roma at home. The Nerazzurri have found several goalscorers and solidity in midfield despite the absence of Romelu Lukaku
and Marcelo Brozovic. What looked like a nightmare for Inter has turned into a boon.
Is this where Inzaghi’s men find the greater spirit and march on to make the most of this season? It can possibly be! Inter look balanced and have a decent squad depth to make a good run in Europa and replicate the form domestically. Can they pull this off though?
Fiorentina vs Inter Statistics and Encounters
Fiorentina come into this game with only 1 win in their last 5 league games and only 2 Conference League wins in their last five games overall. La Viola are not exactly having the season that they usually do. But a point over Inter or even a surprise win will be something they will try their best shot at.
Fiorentina’s form: L-W-L-W-D
Inter’s form: L-W-W-D-W
The Interisti might have never thought there will be sunlight after the storm at the beginning of the season. Three wins in their last four games
and a draw away to Barcelona is the sign of good form. Inter are still not their absolute best by any means, but Fiorentina away from home can be the stepping stone that gets them there.
