Date: Wednesday, 22 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:45 UK/ 21:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (San Siro) (Milan).
Inter is five-points behind Juventus on the title hunt and with four games remaining and Juve getting subjected to draws frequently, we cannot say that the title race has ended for either team.
Mid-table Fiorentina has been on an unbeaten run in the league and it is not sure how they will hold against the top part teams, especially when the competition is getting tighter.
Inter vs Fiorentina Match preview
Inter has lost only one of their last ten matches, and that was at home against Bologna. Their previous encounter was on the road against AS Roma, in which the teams shared spoils in a 2-2 scoreline.
I Nerazzurri kept a tight defense at home and as a result, they lost only two of their 17 home matches in the campaign until now, with just 17 goals conceded at home so far.
Fiorentina has also kept a decent form on the road in the league, comprising 6 wins and 6 losses in their 16 away fixtures so far in the contest.
They will visit after a 2-0 win at home against Torino in the previous league clash. It was their third win within the last five unbeaten fixtures in the schedule.
In the reverse fixture this season, both teams struggled to find the back of the net in the 1-1 encounter leading to them sharing the spoils by the end of the match.
Since Inter Milan is at a better position in the league now, the host can use their ground advantage in exploiting the weakness of the traveling side to take all three points from the clash.

Inter vs Fiorentina Prediction
Inter is closer to the table-toppers while Fiorentina is a mid-table side, lagging behind the host by 30 points in the league table this season as it stands. The visitor is still on an unbeaten streak in the campaign and I Nerazzurri can expect a fightback in the match.
But with their home ground advantage and squad strength over La Viola, Inter Milan will create more chances in the game than the guests at San Siro. The home win in full-time with 1.44 odds will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter.
There has been never a shortage of goals whenever these sides met. However, Lukaku is out because of injury which will reduce the sharpness of Inter’s attacks. So, the safest tip from the goals area will be the tip for under 3.5 goals with 1.57 odds in the game.
