Fiorentina – Inter Milan
The leader in the Serie A Inter Milan visits Fiorentina at the Artemio Franchi in a match from the 16th round of the league. This is a fine moment to discuss this fixture with you.
Inter Milan are having a great season so far, turning out to be Juventus’ main contender for the title. Right now the Nerazzurri are first in the league with 38 points, being two points ahead of the champion with two points.
During the week Inter Milan had an unpleasant experience in Europe, because they lost at home against Barcelona and they were eliminated from the Champions League. It’s not the best feeling on Earth, but now Inter can actually concentrate on their fight for the Scudetto. The manager Antonio Conte said that he doesn’t have enough depth in his squad to be competitive both in the Serie A and the Champions League.
For Inter Milan it’s not going to be easy in Florence, but for them it’s a great opportunity to show once again that winning Serie A is their priority at the moment.
Fiorentina are in a pretty bad shape at the moment. La Viola lost their last four games in the league, which led to speculations that the manager Vincenzo Montella could be sacked really soon. Most probably this is going to happen if Fiorentina lose against Inter Milan on Sunday.
Last week Fiorentina once again dissapointed. They visited Torino at the Olimpico, but goals from Simone Zaza and Cristian Ansaldi put the Bulls comfortably ahead. Martin Caceres scored for Fiorentna at the end of the game, but this was all from the visitors.
Being in a run of four consecutive losses in the Serie A, Fiorentina are complete underdogs against Inter Milan on Sunday. This game could be decisive about Enzo Montella’s fate. The manager could be on his way out if his team loses at the Artemio Franchi.
