Serie A Preview: Inter - Fiorentina

Serie A Preview: Inter - Fiorentina

Inter will look to extend their 11-game Serie A home winning streak when Fiorentina pay a visit to San Siro on Sunday


PROBABLE LINE-UPS
Inter (4-3-1-2)

Julio Cesar; Maicon, Lucio, Ranocchia, Nagatomo; Zanetti, Cambiasso, Thiago Motta; Kharja; Pazzini, Eto'o

Inter Milan


Julio Cesar is back between the posts after serving a one-match ban. The news is not all good for Leonardo though as Wesley Sneijder, Dejan Stankovic and Goran Pandev will miss the match through injury. Walter Samuel is not quite ready to return while MacDonald Mariga is suspended.

Fiorentina (4-3-3)

Boruc; De Silvestri; Gamberini, Kroldrup, Pasqual; Behrami, D'Agostino, Montolivo; Cerci, Gilardino, Vargas

Fiorentina


Fiorentina coach Sinisa Mihajlovic will return to his old stomping ground without the services of long-term absentee Stevan Jovetic and Adrian Mutu who is out for the remainder of the season.

The 26-year-old rescued Inter last weekend against Cesena with two late goals and has eight to his name since joining the club in January. The Italy international will be one of the favourites to find the back of the net on Sunday.

The 23-year-old winger has been sensational lately, netting four goals to help Fiorentina to two straight victories. He will need to replicate his recent feats if the Viola hope to pull off the upset at San Siro.

Editor's Prediction

Inter have been untouchable at San Siro in Serie A since Leonardo took the reigns and have an excellent track record against Fiorentina in recent years. All signs point to a win for the hosts on Sunday.
