Inter Milan vs Fiorentina

Two Serie A teams who enjoyed victories last time out clash at the San Siro on Tuesday night, as Inter Milan take on Fiorentina. It is the standout fixture of the midweek group of matches in the Italian top flight and pairs together two of the bigger clubs in the country.

Currently, Inter Milan sit 9th in the league table, but have had an upturn in form in recent weeks with three wins in their last four games in all competitions. Meanwhile, Fiorentina ended a two-game wait for a victory at the weekend after beating SPAL 3-0 at home to go 3rd in the table.

The form of both has been somewhat erratic of late, making it difficult to predict whether or not we will see goals in this contest. Inter have twice failed to score in their five Serie A games so far, while Fiorentina have kept clean sheets in two of their last four games in the league.

Both teams to score YES has been favoured in the betting markets, currently being priced at 8/11 with Ladbrokes. Meanwhile, those hoping to go against both sites scoring can get a price of 5/4 with BetVictor for Tuesday night’s game in Milan.

Goalscorer Odds and Predictions

Both sides have players to respect in attack, which should certainly make for an entertaining contest. Inter haven’t seen the best of Mauro Icardi yet this season, with the Argentinian forward still yet to find the back of the net in Serie A, although his confidence will have been boosted by an excellent volley in the Champions League during their 2-1 win over Tottenham.

Even out of form, Icardi is a player to pay close attention to, which makes his price of 7/2 with Bet365 to score first a stand out for a player who bagged 29 goals in Serie A last term and is still finding his way playing alongside Radja Nainggolan.

Ivan Perisic, who scored in the World Cup semi-finals and final with Croatia in the summer, has been their main attacking threat with two goals in Serie A so far. Coming in from the left, Perisic always poses a goal threat to opposition full-backs and can be backed to find the back of the net anytime at 23/10 with Betfair.

For Fiorentina, they also have a midfielder leading the way in the scoring charts. Italian Marco Benassi has been in fine form, scoring three goals in five league appearances and will be filled with confidence coming into this game. Benassi scored all three goals in his first two appearances of the season, but is yet to find the back of the net since.

He can be backed to break his recent duck at 4/1 with Bet365. Perhaps their most likely scorer is 20-year-old Federico Chiesa, who has been their outstanding player during the early weeks of the campaign.

Chiesa has two goals to his name this season, as well as an assist and looks to have caught the eye of a number of clubs around Europe. He is currently priced at 12/1 with Bet365 to open the scoring at the San Siro.
