Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi, Florence.
Inter Milan will return to the league duties just three days after losing the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final 1-2 to Juventus at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
Nerazzurri by no means played bad on the occasion, but were brutally punished for defensive errors.
Nevertheless, they will still travel to Stadio Artemio Franchi high on confidence having won two of the last three Serie A outings without conceding a single goal in the process.
Antonio Conte’s men narrowed the gap behind city rivals Milan at the top of the standings down to just two points.
Inter showed a fantastic attacking display in the 4-0 drubbing of Benevento last Saturday. Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez were both on the scoresheet back then.

Fiorentina vs Inter Milan Prediction
Fiorentina have had a rollercoaster campaign full of ups and downs so far in the season. They are well capable of hurting any team in the division on their day, but they are still just seven points above the relegation area at the moment.
Viola took four points from the last two league outings against Crotone and Torino but we doubt they have what it takes to get away with spoils from this tie.
Inter are desperate for points as a win would see them go off bitter city rivals Milan at the top of the league standings (at least for a day). They have dominated this match-up recently and we have no other option but to back the away as the main betting pick at the 1.55 odds.
Since Viola have been poor in defending their own goals against bigger teams this season, the Over 2.5 goals FT looks like another decent shout at the odds of 1.72.
