Inter vs Fiorentina Match Prediction

By Phill Barrs

Two sides looking to recapture former glories will face one another at the San Siro on Sunday in the opening match of the Serie A season for each. Inter Milan, fresh off a disappointing stop-start campaign that saw them finish in seventh, play host to Fiorentina, who finished just two points back last season. With both out of Europe, they have had a full summer to try and prepare to do better. Inter Milan ended its preseason with a 1-0 in Lecce over Real Betis back on Saturday. They got the goal from the captain Mauro Icardi, who netted from a penalty. Fiorentina concluded its preparations on Sunday when they faced Parma in Parma. They ended up drawing that match 0-0. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The goals have rained in of late when these two sides have met, with nine coming in their last meeting alone. The match before that contained six goals. They split those two matches. In the last six matches, 27 goals total have been scored. Fiorentina have owned Inter of late, with five wins from the last six.

That makes them at 5/1 look very good. Inter are nowhere near as good as the odds indicate, as they haven't been 'fixed' that much. With those odds, it's hard to be against Fiorentina to at least get a draw.

A score draw, which is likely given all of those goals scored last season, would also be a decent bet at 4/1 since Inter are at home in the San Siro.

Inter saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Inter saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played against Fiorentina

Inter Preview

After using multiple managers last term and having an absolute roller coaster of a season, Inter Milan have decided to go to the steady Luciano Spalletti for the new season. The former Roma boss had the capital club in second place, and that would be a dream right now for the Nerazzuri given current status. The big story surrounding Inter of late has been the status of winger Ivan Perisic. They have seen key defensive men like Gary Medel and youngster Marco Andreolli leave in the summer, while adding the likes of center midfielder Borja Valero, striker Stevan Jovetic, and left back Dalbert.

Inter Team News

Spalletti has no injuries or suspensions to worry about ahead of the new season, so that will encourage him for this match.

Fiorentina Preview

For the first time in some time, Fiorentina has been completely locked out of European football. La Viola is not used to this sort of thing, but it's something Inter and even AC Milan have had to go through of late as well. Stefano Pioli, the man that has been replaced at Inter, will have a big point to prove. Something happened during his tenure that turned things sour, and he's shown he can get results at times and putting together a run. His motivation will be huge in this match as a result of that. His side has lost Valero to Inter, while also losing winger Federico Bernadeschi and midfielder Matias Vecino. A number of players have been brought in, including the likes of center midfielder Jordan Veretout, center back Vitor Hugo, and attacking midfielder Valentin Eysseric.

Fiorentina Team News

Pioli also has no injuries or suspensions to account for in this season's opening fixture.
