Fiorentina vs Inter Milan build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Before welcoming Cagliari to Stadio Artemio Franchi the Florence-based club had gone five consecutive matches in all competitions without registering a home win, though just one of those outings ended in defeat (0-1 v Benevento). However, in the Coppa Italia, they are near flawless having won seven of their previous eight home matches with Fiorentina’s last defeat coming against Carpi in December 2015.
Antonio Conte’s side were eliminated by eventual winners Napoli at the semi-final stages last season and will be determined to go one better this campaign. It’s been a mixed bag for the Milanese giants on the road lately as they come into Wednesday’s encounter having failed to win any of their previous two away trips. However, since a 0-2 success at Genoa they’ve registered five wins from nine games, and that equally included a loss at Real Madrid and victory over Borussia Monchengladbach.
- Fiorentina (vs Cagliari): Dragowski; Milenkovic, Pezzella, Igor; Cáceres, Amrabat, Pulgar, Biraghi; Bonaventura, Callejón; Vlahovic.
- Inter Milan (vs AS Roma): Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni; Hakimi, Barella, Brozovic, Vidal*, Darmian*; Martinez, Lukaku.
Franck Ribéry is the only major absentee for Fiorentina as he nurses a muscle injury. Inter Milan are missing five players with Matteo Darmian and Arturo Vidal joining Danilo D’Ambrosio, Matias Vecino and Andrea Pinamonti on the sidelines.
Players to watch:
- Fiorentina: It could very well come down to fighting fire with fire and it’s fortunate that Fiorentina possesses an in-form Dusan Vlahovic who netted four times across five league appearances heading into the Cagliari game. Inter’s previous visit saw them leave with a 1-1 draw; on that day Vlahovic equalised for La Viola in stoppage time, cancelling out Borja Valero’s eighth minute opener. The Nerazzurri have been shaky at the back of late which no doubt will encourage Vlahovic and company.
- Inter Milan: Inter’s attacking prowess is well-documented; there’s a strong case in Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez being Europe’s most feared striking duo. That being said, it’s those around them who deserve equal credit and we saw one such individual rise to the occasion against AS Roma in Serie A last time out. After going a goal behind, Conte’s side responded strongly after half-time, turning it around in a seven-minute spell, both of their strikes were indebted to Croatian midfielder Marcelo Brozovic who has now recorded no fewer than eight assists in all competitions this season (the most by any Inter player) and he’ll fancy his chances of causing Fiorentina problems from deep.
