Fiorentina – Inter : Preview & Prediction
Fiorentina will play its 3rd Italian Cup match against one of the best teams in Italy, Inter Milan … If the Viola struggled to eliminate Padua (2-1) and Udinese (1- 0 ap) on the outside, the Ribéry gang could lower their arms during this Round of 16. The Florence club has just won painfully against Cagliari (1-0) this Sunday evening after 2 disappointing performances against Bologna (0-0) at Artemio Franchi and on the lawn of Lazio Rome (2-1). Inter Milan, runners-up to AC Milan, is entering this competition. The Nerazzurri have just gleaned 16 points out of 21 in play during the last 7 days, recording 5 successes in Cagliari (3-1), against Naples (1-0), against Spezia (2-1), on the lawn of Hellas Verona (2-1) and against Crotone (6-2) then 1 defeat on the ground of Sampdoria Genoa (2-1) and 1 draw in Rome (2-2) this Sunday.
