Fiorentina vs Inter Milan
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 24 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi (Florence).
Inter Milan went through hard times with a series of poor results and dreadful atmosphere in the dressing room around the whole Mauro and Wanda Icardi saga. However, Luciano Spalletti made the right move by sending the Argentine striker to the stands in the last couple of weeks. Other players responded with a four-win streak in all competitions.
Nerazzurri stormed past Austrian Rapid Vienna with two comfortable clean sheet wins in the last 32 round of Europa League. They also shipped just one goal during the two-win thread in Serie A (0-1 against Parma and 2-1 vs Sampdoria).
Inter kept the four-point cushion on bitter city rivals Milan in third place of the league ladder. They are five points above Roma in fifth being still in the driving seat in the battle for the Champions League football next season.
Can Spalletti’s troops keep the good from going and claim fifth subsequent win on Sunday evening when they travel to Florence to take in Fiorentina in the derby of Matchday at Stadio Artemio Franchi?

Fiorentina vs Inter Milan: Prediction
Even though Inter significantly improved their defensive displays of late, we do expect the BTTS head to head trend to be continued here. Fiorentina bagged four goals in the thumping of SPAL last weekend and they will come into this in high spirits.
Viola previously also bagged seven goals in a demolishing victory over Roma in Coppa Italia quarter-final. We definitely see the value in backing goals at both ends at the 1.75 odds here. As for the outcome, draw is the most likable of three and we will go for it at the odds of 3.30.
