Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Fiorentina and Inter face each other in a highly-anticipated game at Stadio Artemio Franchi on Friday evening. Fiorentina are eyeing their third consecutive win at home ground, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach against Inter. However, home win should not be considered as both Milenkovic and Castrovilli are banned for the hosts. The Nerazzurri, on the other hand, rolled over Benevento 4-0 to stay in the race for Scudetto.
Since aforementioned Milenkovic will be sorely missed in Friday’s showdown, we are tempted to put our money on Romelu Lukaku and Co. Antonio Conte should have a full squad to choose from, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the visiting team this time out. In the first half of the season Inter recorded a thrilling 4-3 win over Fiorentina at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

Highlighted Team (Inter):
Internazionale Milano, known as Internazionale, Inter or Inter named Milan, is a football club from Italy, founded on March 9, 1908 by a number of "rebels" who did not like in the regulations of the Milan Cricket and Football Club, now known as AC Milan. The main objection was that no foreign players were allowed. In 1928 the club merged with US Milanese and strongly entered a time when Ambrosiana-Inter survived.
The club, nicknamed the Nerazzurri or the blue / blacks has had many successes. This is how Inter Milan won 18 national titles, seven times the Italian Cup, the UEFA Cup 3x, and 3x times the Champions League, formerly known as the European Cup I.
