Inter – Fiorentina 26.09.2013
Both teams are unbeaten in the new season and with identical start came in this match.
They have three wins from four matches and a draw, so they are only two points behind the leading Roma and Napoli who have maximal success. Inter are on the third position because of the better goal difference, while Fiorentina are fourth placed.
Inter came in this match after convincing 7:0 win against the newcomers in the league Sassuolo. They also won against Catania and Genoa, while shared the points with Juventus. The double scorer against Sassuolo was Diego Milito. This was the first match for the Argentine striker in the new season. He has a serious knee injury and played only in the second half on that match. His two goals are good sign that his recovery passed great, so he is ready to be included in the starting eleven. Inter are the highest-scoring team in Serie A with 13 goal thanks to their seven goals win against Sassuolo. They also have the great defense line and have only one conceded goal so far. The defenders Javier Zanetti and Christian Chivu are unavailable for this match due to injuries.
Match: Inter – Fiorentina 20.45h
League: Serie A
Our prediction: over 2.5 goals Odds: 1.85
Fiorentina came in this match after an away victory over Atalanta in the last round. They also won against Genoa and Catania, while played draw with Cagliari. Fiorentina have 10 goals scored and only 4 conceded. But Fiorentina are handicapped for this match due to the absence of the injured striker Mario Gomez. Also the midfielders Juan Cuadrado and Josip Ilicic will miss the match because of injuries. In addition, the coach Vincenzo Montella can not count on suspended midfielder David Pizarro. The absence of these three midfielders opens the space for Joaquin who played only in two matches in this season.
In their last 13 mutual matches when they played at Giuseppe Meazza, Inter had almost 100 percent success, 12 wins and only one defeat. But Fiorentina are very strong this season and they are able to make a surprise at Meazza. That is why I will suggest to take a medium stake of goals. I expect at least three goals again.
