The kick off in this mouth watering tie between Inter and Fiorentina at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium is drawing near. The viola took six points from the nerazzurri last season, however since then coach Roberto Mancini has strengthened his side considerably; including the acquisition of former Fiorentina striker Stefan Jovetić from Manchester City.

As expected, former Fiorentina players Felipe Melo and Stefan Jovetić will start, with Adem Ljajić on the bench, as Mancini opts for a 4-3-3.

Paulo Sousa starts with 3 at the back and two up front - Josip Iličić and Nikola Kalinić leading the line. Matías Vecino keeps his place after the midweek win against Bologna, as the viola midfield begins to look settled.

A win for Fiorentina will see them top Serie A at the end of the evening, it may be early days but this feels like a huge game - even at this stage of the season. Forza Viola!


Internazionale (4-3-3) Handanovic; Santon, Miranda, Medel, Telles; Guarin, Melo, Kondogbia; Perisic; Jovetic, Icardi

FIORENTINA: (3-5-2) Tatarusanu; Roncaglia, Gonzalo, Astori; Kuba, Vecino, Badelj, Borja, Alonso; Iličić, Kalinić
