Team News: Inter Milan
There’s just the lone fitness concern for the Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte to contend with from an otherwise complete group. Matías Vecino (Knee Injury) won’t play. Stefan de Vrij will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We think that Nerazzurri will possibly use a 3-5-2 system for the game, beginning the first half with Samir Handanovic, Alessandro Bastoni, Milan Skriniar, Diego Godin, Ashley Young, Marcelo Brozovic, Nicolò Barella, Roberto Gagliardini, Danilo D'Ambrosio, Lautaro Javier Martinez and Romelu Lukaku.
Team News: Fiorentina
Out of a mainly full-strength group, there is just the sole fitness worry for the Fiorentina manager Giuseppe Iachini to be concerned with. Erick Pulgar (Fitness) misses out for this game.
There’s a good chance that La Viola will likely elect for a 3-5-2 lineup by sending out Bartłomiej Drągowski, Nikola Milenkovic, Martin Caceres, Federico Ceccherini, Federico Chiesa, Gaetano Castrovilli, Giacomo Bonaventura, Alfred Duncan, Cristiano Biraghi, Franck Ribéry and Christian Kouamé.
We’re of the view that Inter Milan have it within them to fashion enough chances to find the net more than once while possibly not conceding when they meet Fiorentina, who might well find it a difficult task finding the net themselves.
We’re tipping a controlled 2-0 victory for Inter Milan after 90 minutes.
