Inter team news

Inter required a late equaliser from Alexis Sanchez to eke out a 1-1 draw with Torino last weekend. Two key pillars of the side were missing from that match; Marcelo Brozovic and Stefan de Vrij.

The Croatian midfielder has a chance of returning this weekend from a calf injury but is touch and go. De Vrij, however, isn't expected to feature again until the other side of the international break.


Fiorentina team news

Italiano has been spared a spate of injuries at the moment. Only the former Inter loanee Cristiano Biraghi is expected to miss out as the fullback nurses a knee injury set to sideline him until April.


Inter vs Fiorentina head-to-head record

Two of Serie A's original seven sisters have been going head to head with one another in Italy's top flight since the 1930s. The Nerazzurri are unbeaten in their last nine league meetings with La Viola, winning each of the past three.

Inter began their title charge last season with a San Siro victory over Fiorentina. The reigning champions have won 16 of their last 19 home games against the Tuscany outfit in Serie A.


Inter vs Fiorentina score prediction

Italiano has completely morphed the style of this Fiorentina team since his arrival, establishing La Viola as Serie A's most considered side in possession that can still pick their moments to press.

Despite their recent wobble, Inter remain fierce opponents for any side in their continued pursuit of a second consecutive Scudetto. Fiorentina will certainly cause them problems, but the Nerazzurri are favourites at home, especially if Brozovic is fit.

Prediction: Inter 2-1 Fiorentina
