One of the games of the week in Serie A comes from the Stadio Artemio Franchi as Fiorentina play host to Internazionale.
Fiorentina come into this game in good form, La Viola are unbeaten in seven in Serie A going 3-4-0 over that period of time. Defensively Fiorentina have been excellent this season, especially at home where they have conceded just ten goals this year. Fiorentina have conceded only one goal in their last five Serie A games. Top scorer Simeone will be the key man for Fiorentina when they face an Internazionale side that have struggled over the last month. Simeone and Babacar will offer Fiorentina some firepower up top but between the two strikers they have just ten goals this season.
Internazionale are 0-3-3 in their last six in all competitions and have not won a game since the end of November. Inter started December strongly with a good point against Champions Juventus but since that game Inter have been very poor and failed to win a game since. Top scorer Icardi is having a terrific season with seventeen goals in ninteen appearances. He will be the key for Internazionale if they are to win this game. Perisic has had a good season on the wing for Inter and with seven goals this term , just four away from his career best of 11 goals in a season. Spaletti has done a good job since taking over as Internazionale manager, he has given the team a belief that they can compete against the top teams in Serie A but they really need a win now in January to kickstart the new year. This is going to be a very tough game for Inter to get that win as Fiorentina have one of the best home records in Serie A.
For me this game screams draw. Internazionale come into this one a little out of form and they come up against a very mean Fiorentina defence that don't give up many goals, especially at home. I'm going to take the draw here at a good price.
