Inter vs Fiorentina Match Preview – Lineups, Stats, & Prediction

Inter beat Fiorentina!

After escaping with a point against Torino, Inter will host Fiorentina this week. Inter have won only two of their last eight games, which has come as a massive blow to their Scudetto defence. The Nerazzurri sit four points off Milan with a game in hand. What has come as a surprise to many is how a strong title defence seems to have come to a grinding halt. With Edin Dzeko seemingly out of steam, Inter have been failing up front consistently. This along with a string of poor performances by the midfield have been contributing to Inter’s woes. Furthermore, the Inter vs Fiorentina game will not be an easy hurdle for Inzaghi to keep his side in the hunt of the Scudetto.

Since 2001, Inter have only lost to Fiorentina at home twice but the Viola are in good touch. With three wins in their last five league encounters, Fiorentina will look to make the most of Inter’s dip in form.

Inter vs Fiorentina Statistics and Encounters

After breaching Liverpool’s fortress at Anfield, Inter were looking like a strong and more importantly a settled side. That win looks like a distant memory now as Inzaghi’s men have dropped important points against Torino. One of the highlights for Inter this season has been the lack of forward passing in the midfield when Brozovic is not playing. Inzaghi’s system is unfairly reliant on the Croatian which comes back to bite the Nerazzurri when he’s not available. With only two wins in the last five, Inter’s Scudetto hopes look bleak.

Inter’s form: D-W-W-D-D

Fiorentina’s form: W-D-L-L-W

Fiorentina have recovered surprisingly well from the loss of Chiesa and Vlahovic in a short span. The Viola are making a run for European football and look like a solid outfit. With a win over Atalanta and a tough fight against Juventus, Fiorentina are not an easy side to get three points against.

Suspension, Injuries and Team News
