AC Florence vs. Inter Milan
In Serie A the fifth matchday is coming up during the week. There, last year’s champions Inter Milan are guests at AC Florence. Fiorentina fans are sure to turn up in numbers to cheer on their Viola at the legendary Artemio Franchi. Both Inter Milan and AC Florence started the new season strongly. Fiorentina have picked up nine points and are currently fifth in the table.
Inter Milan are currently at the top of the table and have not yet lost a game. The Interisti are being chased by city rivals AC Milan, who also have ten points but have the worse goal difference. SSC Napoli play Udinese Calcio tonight and could pass the two Milanese teams with a win.

Florence Form & Balance Check
Fiorentina strengthened in the summer with smart transfers. Gonzalez moved to Tuscany from VfB Stuttgart and immediately became a regular on the left wing. But he is not the only one who has played a big part in the Viola’s current success. The form of the Tuscans could hardly be better: After suffering a defeat in their first league game against AS Roma, they have recently won three games in a row. Especially the 2-1 win against Atalanta Bergamo certainly boosted coach Italiano’s men.
Florence always concede a goal
The Viola have failed to score nil in their last three games. In the first game against Roma, coach Italiano watched his side concede three goals in the capital. We think Inter Milan’s in-form attackers will certainly get their chances. Fiorentina have conceded six goals in their first four league games and are leaving opposing attackers with too much space at crucial moments.
Florence facts & analysis
– The team from Tuscany is currently in fifth place in the table.
– They have recently celebrated three victories in a row
– Fiorentina conceded six goals in four games
Inter Form & Balance Check
With Juventus still without a win after four matchdays, Inter Milan are the absolute top favourites for the Scudetto. Just how strong the fashionable city is at the moment was evident against FC Bologna in their last match. Bologna went down without a sound in Milan. Dzeko scored a brace after coming on as a substitute in the 29th minute in the resounding victory over the team from the province of Reggio Emilia. After a meagre 2-2 draw with Sampdoria Genoa, the Nerazurri got things back on track against Bologna.
Unusually many goals conceded
Inter Milan, along with Juventus Torino, is usually the most defensively strong team in Italy. However, this season they conceded an average of one goal in every game. It is quite realistic that it could be due to Simone Inzaghi’s much more offensive style of play compared to Antonio Conte. In return, however, the Nerazurri score far more goals: Inter have scored an incredible 15 goals in their first four games, more than any other team in Serie A.
Inter facts & analysis
– Inter are currently in first place in the table.
– They are still unbeaten
– Inter have the best offence with 15 goals scored
Predicted line-up – last update on 20 September 2021
We expect Viola coach Italiano to make few starting changes. For the players substituted in the last match, Pulgar and Castrovilli, Torreira and Amrabat could be in the starting eleven on Tuesday. In addition, Milenkovic could again play in place of Julio in central defence from the start.
Dzeko will certainly start against Florence. The Bosnian scored twice in the last match against Bologna. We expect the Nerazurri to play in their usual 3-5-2 system. Inter coach Inzaghi’s success is currently proving him right, which is why we don’t suspect he will change his playing direction.
