5th February 2021 – 20:45, Stadio Artemio Franchi, Florence
Fiorentina and Inter will open the action in the Serie A 21st round on Friday evening. The home side is searching for an improvement, while the visitors want to continue the title race.
Fiorentina vs Inter Match Preview & Team News
Fiorentina doesn’t enjoy the current campaign too much, as the hosts sit in 12th place. They are too far from the continental spot battles, as the home side is 15 points behind the 6thplaced Lazio. On the other hand, Cesare Prandelli’s side is not in a danger zone but should be extra careful. A poor streal could get them in trouble, as Viola is seven points clear from Cagliari. Fiorentina booked only five victories so far in the season, and everybody expected more from this team. Their major pain point is poor finishing since Dusan Vlahovic and the lads scored only 21 times. Their defensive work is pretty decent, as Fiorentina allowed 31 goals so far in the season. Nevertheless, the hosts improved their home displays and haven’t lost five times in a row at Stadio Artemio Franchi. They tied two wins at the home soil, and the fans hope their team can continue that streak.
Inter comes to Florence after losing against Juventus in a mid-week Coppa Italia fixture. Although they had an early lead, Bianconeri managed to turn around the result thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo’s brace. That game just continued Inter’s inconsistent form. The visitors booked only two wins in the last five Serie A rounds. Nevertheless, Antonio Conte’s side has been pretty confident in a 4:0 victory over Benevento the previous weekend. They are two points behind Milan and looking forward to continuing the title battle. Romelu Lukaku and the lads are the most productive team in the league with 49 goals scored, but lately, they struggle on the road. Inter hasn’t celebrated away from home in the last three outings. They shouldn’t underestimate Fiorentina, as Inter almost lost in their season-opener against Viola at home.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Although neither of the sides has been playing constantly well lately, Inter is a strong favorite. We believe the visitors will meet the expectations and get back home with all three points.
Goals Market Prediction
Their recent head-to-head clashes were a joy to watch. Inter celebrated a 4:3 win in the opening round this season, while we haven’t seen goals in both nets just once in their previous eight matches. Although Fiorentina struggles in the front, Inter is not so good in defense, and we expect both teams to score.
