Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Stadio Artemio Franchi will host Friday’s football game between Fiorentina and Inter. The Viola head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Milan and it has to be noted that they are on a seven-game unbeaten run in the Serie A. Stefano Pioli’s men are eyeing a place in European competitions, but they will have to be at their sharpest in the remainder of the season if they are to meet the goal. Inter made a flying start to the season, but, all of a sudden they suffered a dip in form. The Nerazzurri have been struggling in front of goal of late and you should bear in mind that they failed to score in three of their last four league fixtures. Luciano Spalletti’s troops aim to stay in the race for Scudetto, but seeing that Fiorentina have been in a fine form of late, we predict the two teams are going to share the spoils on Matchday 20.
