Fiorentina vs Inter Milan Tips
Wednesday 24th May
Stadio Olimpico, Rome
Inter Milan (19/20) have become somewhat cup specialists under the guidance of Simone Inzaghi, after beating Juventus in the Coppa Italia final last season, as well as seeing off city rivals AC Milan in the Supercoppa in January.
With two games to play in Serie A, the Nerazzurri have no chance of reclaiming the league crown, however, they do have a Champions League final against Manchester City to prepare for.
While they recently suffered their 12th defeat of an inconsistent league campaign – Sunday’s 3-1 loss to newly-crowned champions Napoli – Inter are still closing in on a top-four finish, thanks to a previous winning streak of eight games in all competitions.
Much like their counterparts, Fiorentina (5/2) also have a European final to prepare for, meaning they are only two games away from double cup glory.
After a season plagued by inconsistency, Fiorentina sprang into life and won nine of 10 matches leading into their semi-final tie with giantkillers Cremonese – who had already knocked out both Roma and Napoli – but following a 1-1 draw with Torino last time out they are yet to confirm even a top-half finish in Serie A.
Milan Skriniar (back) and Henrikh Mkhitaryan (thigh) will miss out due to injury for Inter, while club captain Samir Handanovic is expected to start between the sticks.
As for Fiorentina, Giacomo Bonaventura returns from a Serie A suspension and is set to feature in midfield, however Salvatore Sirigu has been ruled out for the remainder of the season with an Achilles injury.,
Both teams to score @ 8/11
Inter are in fine form in front of goal and have scored in 10 consecutive games.
Fiorentina have struck in six of their last seven, and have scored four goals in their two meetings with Inter this season – the aggregate score in league games this season is 4-4.
There have been goals at both ends in three of the last four meetings, and I can see both sides finding a breakthrough in Wednesday’s final.
Lautaro Martinez to score anytime @ 7/5
Lautaro Martinez has also impressed for Inter Milan in recent weeks with eight goals in his last 10 matches across all competitions.
In addition, the striker also scored twice against Fiorentina this season, so he will be confident he can get on the scoresheet once again against Vincenzo Italiano’s side.
