Team News

  • Migliaccio and Aquilani are back from their suspensions, and the latter is favoured to be on the field from kick off.
  • Tomovic will probably give Roncaglia some rest by playing alongside Rodriguez and Savic in defence.
  • Toni and El Hamdaoui are battling to partner Jovetic, while Ljajic is likely to sit out.
  • Diego Milito injured his knee in the Europa League match and his season is over. The club is considering buying a free agent to have another option up front.
  • Kovacic has been praised after his performance against Cluj and will start again in a playmaking position, with Cambiasso and Kuzmanovic either side.
  • Guarin will be the link between midfield and attack once again, while Cassano and Palacio will play up front.

Prediction

  • Fiorentina seemed to be out of the woods after their convincing 2-0 victory on Parma at the Franchi, but then meeting table-toppers Juventus in Turin brought them back down to earth. Montella has always claimed to be happy with the football his team has played, but now he must go back getting points on the board.
  • Inter opened a slight gap from Milan with a win against Chievo last week, while their Rossoneri "cousins" drew at Cagliari. The victory in the Europa League and the enthusiasm generated by young talent Kovacic were overshadowed by Milito's injury. Stramaccioni has to both manage the team's morale and find a different attacking solution.
  • As the hosts are used to controlling the match and Stramaccioni's Inter have always performed better when counter-attacking, this will probably be the theme of the match. The Viola must not commit mistakes whilst in possession, while Inter will try to exploit any chance they are given to break. Jovetic has been lying low lately, with just one goal in six appearances in 2013. It could be time for him to return to form.

  • @anatoly13: Good points I'm not sure why you are downvoted but I thought it was more a 4-3-3. From left to right: Pasqual, Savic, Rodriguez, Tomovic; Borja Valero, Pizarro, Aquilani; Ljajic, Jovetic, Cuadrado. I think the only difference is that I would classify Cuadrado as a right winger as he pushes forward so frequently on the right whereas Tomovic was staying back and covering for him.

  • WHat the fuck.. we need the special one again

  • The tactical formation of Fiore is incorrect in this translation. They rather play 4-4-2. In the middle Cuardado stays wide right, Pizarro is DM, Valero and Aquilani play box to box, when Aquilani is more prone to play for attack. Ljajic plays second striker from the depth of the left wind and Jovetic is deep-slayed centre forward.

  • Fiorentina to r@pe Inter 2-0

  • Ole4X... INTERRR..INTERRR..
