Inter 2.00, the draw 3.45, Fiorentina 3.85
Ten points, 13 goals scored and only one conceded. Inter have enjoyed a thrilling start to life under Walter Mazzarri, even if those statistics are somewhat skewed by the rout of Sassuolo.
Any doubts about the club’s capacity to hold its own against stiffer opposition was eradicated by an impressive performance against Juventus in the Derby d’Italia earlier this month.
Now the Nerazzurri come up against another accomplished side in Fiorentina. Vincenzo Montella’s team will be missing two key pieces in Mario Gómez and Juan Cuadrado – each of them ruled out for at least another six weeks – but have already demonstrated their strength in depth. The manager has used 23 players already this season.
Inter have held something of a hoodoo over Fiorentina at San Siro in recent years, winning the last 12 editions of this fixture in all competitions. The price seems a little short to me against such high quality opponents, but I still find myself leaning towards the home win.
Best bet: Back Inter to win at 2.00
