Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte rotated the defense a bit, bringing in Diego Godín and Danilo D’Ambrosio, while Christian Eriksen and Romelu Lukaku returned to the attack. Fiorentina mister Giuseppe Iachini changed things quite a bit. The big change was Lorenzo Venuti replacing Federico Chiesa on the right. Alfred Duncan, Patrick Cutrone, and Dalbert returned to the XI, while Milan Badelj and Pietro Terracciano stepped in as well due to injury or exhaustion.
Thanks to the post and Pietro Terracciano, Fiorentina somehow came away with a goalless draw at the half.
Inter had the best of the chances again, highlighted by this Alexis Sánchez drive off the post.

Change in standings
The result pushes Fiorentina into the top half of the table for the first time since November, moving them to 10th place with 43 points; they could drop to 11th if Cagliari beat Lazio in Rome tomorrow. Inter, meanwhile, drop to third, a point behind Atalanta and 4 behind Lazio, who could pull closer tomorrow.
