Inter is hosting Fiorentina at Giuseppe Meazza in a derby match of round 2 in the Italian Serie A.
Inter lost twice last season. First, Inter ended up the season in second place with 82 points, just 1 point behind Juventus, and second, Inter lost in the Europa League finals 3-2 to Sevilla. Overall, Inter was the best team in Serie A in my opinion last season, and they have scored 81 goals while conceding only 36 goals. In the preseason, Inter has played 2 games, and they have won both of those games while scoring 12 goals in the process. Hakimi is the biggest signing for Inter as of yet, he arrived from Real Madrid for 44 million Euros, while they also signed Kolarov, Barella, and Sensi. Vidal arrived from Barcelona for free, while Sanchez was signed also for free after his loan ended. There aren’t any notable departures from Inter, expect that Icardi was permanently signed by PSG after he spent a season on loan there. There are some rumors that Skrinar will leave Inter for Tottenham, while Serri should arrive from Fulham. I am reading a lot lately that Inter is the biggest favorite to win the title this season, and I agree. Inter is the most complete team in Serie A, and they are playing well-balanced soccer. Let’s go for the title, Inter.
Fiorentina is showing a massive sign of improvement, and thanks to that, Fiorentina has won their last 5 games. In their first game of the season against Torino at home, Fiorentina was solid with 49% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and a solid 85% of the correct passes. Fiorentina has won this match 1-0 with a goal in the 78th minute. Castrovilli is the only goalscorer for Fiorentina so far this season with 1 goal, while Chiesa added 1 assist. Pulgar is the only injured player for Fiorentina, and he will not be in the lineup for this match. Fiorentina is now in 6th place in the standings with 3 points. The last season was decent for Fiorentina, and they ended up in 10th place with 49 points, only 4 spots away from the Europa League, but still massive 13 points away. Fiorentina was able to keep their best players, and they brought in some reinforcements, and we can clearly see that Fiorentina has improved a lot. Fiorentina has also kept their head coach from last season, and they had no reason to change anything because Fiorentina was playing well after the restart.
When playing at home, Inter has not lost o Fiorentina in their last 5 games, while Inter hasn’t lost any of their last 5 home games overall. Both Inter and Fiorentina are in good form. Inter is a big favorite in this match, and the trends are on their side, which is why I will stick with Inter at home in their first game of the new season.
