Sunday Serie A Betting Preview: Inter can get the better of Fiorentina

Italian football paused for reflection last week following the tragic death of Piermario Morosini, who suffered a fatal heart attack while playing for Serie B side Livorno. The top tier of Italian football, Serie A, resumes this weekend and Inter will make the trip to Florence to face Fiorentina on Sunday morning.

With six matches remaining of the Serie A season, these teams find themselves at opposite ends of the table but both still have a lot to play for.

Fiorentina are just three points clear of the relegation zone and victory over Inter would go a long way to securing their future in Italy’s top division. Delio Rossi’s side are chalked up at 9/5 (2.80) with Bet365 to grab a vital three points on Sunday.

Inter have had a disappointing season by their standards. Nevertheless, despite suffering from a chronic lack of form at times this term, they currently lay just two points short of the Europa League qualification places.

The visitors will not have entirely given up hope of a top three finish and Champions League qualification as they sit only six points adrift of third-placed Lazio. Inter are rated as a 6/4 (2.50) shot with Bet365 while the same firm price the draw up at 9/4 (3.25).

As has often been the case this season, Diego Milito was Inter’s goal hero in their last outing, the Argentine international bagging two goals to see off Siena. Milito has an impressive 20 goals this term and it is little surprise to see him heading Bet365’s first scorer market at 15/4 (4.75).

Fiorentina secured a shock win at San Siro against Inter’s city rivals, Milan, two weeks ago but that was their only win in their last seven matches and they will look for another big performance here.

The home sides hopes will largely rest with striker Stevan Jovetic. Jovetic represents the visitors’ biggest goal threat and is chalked up at 11/2 (6.50) with Bet365 to score first.

Inter, though, have the bit between their teeth as they pursue European football and the 6/4 (2.50) quote for them to win represents the best bet here.
