Inter boss Antonio Conte has some current player fitness concerns. Matías Vecino (Knee Injury), Andrea Pinamonti (Ankle problems) and Danilo D'Ambrosio (Sideband injury) miss out here.
Our feeling is that Fiorentina would be disappointed if they were not to score against this Inter Milan team, but a single goal might not be as many as they will have scored against them.
Therefore, we’re predicting a 1-2 winning margin for Inter Milan after the 90. Looking forward to this.
