Fiorentina vs Inter Milan predictions and betting tips for this Sunday evening Serie A fixture on February 24th with an anytime goalscorer tip and goals prediction included.
Inter travel to Florence on Sunday night as Serie A serves up another cracking fixture between two sides hoping for European football next season. Stefano Pioli comes up against his former club, and will be hoping that the Viola can take advantage of Inter’s packed schedule. Can the Viola continue their excellent home form against one of their fellow top six challengers? See our Fiorentina vs Inter Milan predictions below.
It’s been a good season so far for Fiorentina, who currently sit eighth in the table, and are in contention for a European spot. They’ve enjoyed some high-scoring matches this season, and they’ve only been beaten twice at the Artemi Franchi. Parma and Juventus are the only two sides to have beaten the Viola in their own back yard. Inter will be a tough nut to crack, and they’ve arguably been better since Mauro Icardi was exiled from the team, and he is unlikely to return here. Spaletti’s men were at their destructive best in the Europa League on Thursday night, and although this is a quick turnaround, they were on home soil against Rapid Vienna. The last tie between these two sides ended 1-1, and we could have a similar outcome here. Fiorentina held Napoli to a goalless draw, and even though they’ve been free-scoring in recent weeks, they showed their resilient side against Carlo Ancellotti’s side. Inter have conceded just three times in seven Serie A matches, and they are also incredibly difficult to beat. Although this should be a decent contest, these two sides could cancel each other out. Stefan Pioli has also never beaten his opposite number, drawing twice and losing seven. The draw is the first of our Serie A predictions for Sunday night.
Neither side will fancy dropping points against a direct rival in this game, and there won’t be much between them. Inter’s games have been low-scoring of late, only one of their last ten matches have featured three or more goals. Their defence has been magnificant in recent weeks, and even though the Viola’s attack is potent, they could keep them at bay. Barring Juventus’ 3-0 win here, Fiorentina have got respectable results against sides around them. They’ve drawn 0-0 and 1-1 with Napoli and Roma respectively, and another low-scoring encounter awaits. Under 2.5 Goals is the second of our Fiorentina vs Inter Milan predictions.
Jordan Veretout has scored some important goals this season, and he’s likely to be the penalty taker in this tie. He’s only scored four times this season, but three of those have been at the Artemi Franchi, and he was also on the spot last weekend. With the goals being shared around between the likes of Luis Muriel and Geovanni Simeone, Veretout could be the value in this market. He’s a decent price to score anytime and is the third of our Fiorentina vs Inter Milan betting tips for Sunday night.
Inter start as favourites for this game, and can be backed at 13/8 to return to Milan with three points. The hosts aren’t far behind in the betting markets, and can be backed at 9/5. The draw is available at 23/10.
The market is expecting a low-scoring encounter and it’s 4/5 for Under 2.5 Goals in this tie. It’s Evens for Over 2.5 Goals. It ended 1-1 when the teams last met here, and 2-3 goals exactly is available at 10/11.
Luis Muriel leads the way in the first goalscoring market and is available at 6/1 to net the opener. Lautaro Martinez has been scoring frequently in recent weeks, he is 11/2 to break the deadlock.
