Fiorentina vs Inter Milan
Italian Serie A
Date: 21 September 2021, Tuesday
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi (Florence).
Inter Milan started the defense of Serie A title well and they aim to pick a priceless win against inform Fiorentina on Tuesday night.
The thumping 6-1 win against Bologna helped Inter to move on to 10 points and in a reasonable distance with the fellow contenders AC Milan, Napoli and Roma.
Unbeaten in Serie A this season, the Nerazzurri dropped points for the first time in the 2-2 away draw at Sampdoria. They also suffered a defeat in the Champions League fixture at home against Real Madrid in a match they dominated.
Their response to a poor week was brilliant and the win against Bologna will give them enough confidence against a team like Fiorentina.
The Viola are not far behind from their Tuesday’s host and sit with 9 points. It is three wins in a row that place them here after starting the season with a 1-3 defeat at Rome.
Interestingly, their wins against Atalanta, Torino and Genoa, all came by the same 2-1 scoreline.
The team from Florence are in excellent form and we wait to see if they can profit from the tough run of fixtures of a high profile opponent on Tuesday.

Fiorentina vs Inter Milan Prediction
There is little change at Inter despite the departure of Lukaku, Hakimi and Conte and they continue to play in the same way under new manager Simone Inzaghi.
Goals are a guarantee when the team in blue and black take the pitch and they may not be buoyed by the hot streak of wins of their opponents on Tuesday.
With no disrespect to Fiorentina, they did well in four games played so far, but the wins they bagged are on a narrow margin and they are usual suspects of inconsistency and they will struggle to keep Inzaghi’s men away from their penalty box
