Fiorentina: Two Finals in Two Weeks
Fiorentina progressed to the Final after a 2-0 win on aggregate against Cremonese, collecting a 0-0 draw at Stadio Franchi in Florence. Fiorentina has won the Coppa Italia six times, as many as Napoli, and will play its 11th Final in the competition. The last time was in 2014, eventually losing to Rafa Benitez’s Napoli. Roberto Mancini was the last coach to win the trophy in Florence in 2001.
Fiorentina sits 11th in the Serie A table, 11 points below Atalanta in sixth. However, the club has qualified for the Conference League and if it beats West Ham it will play in next year’s Europa League. Vincenzo Italiano hailed Fiorentina for taking the game to FC Basel through extra time and showing immense hunger.
Fiorentina enters this clash with nothing but a top-half finish to aim for in Serie A, so winning one of its two upcoming finals is its only route back into Europe. Some uninspiring form across the previous 14 head-to-head encounters with Inter makes Fiorentina a fairly big outsider for this clash, although Vincenzo Italiano and his team can take some heart from the fact that the sole victory in that run did come in the most recent clash last month. There are no injury issues for Fiorentina, so Vincenzo Italiano will use his best starting lineup, but we can’t trust it enough in order to include it in our Coppa Italia picks and parlays.
Inter Milan: Great Season
Inter has reached the Coppa Italia Final for the second time in a row and is the defending champion. The Nerazzurri have won the Coppa Italia eight times. It beat Fiorentina 4-3 in October but lost the most recent meeting at San Siro 1-0 on April 1.
Inter won the Scudetto in the 2020-21 season and finished second last season. This year it has struggled in Serie A and currently sits 4th in the standings with only two points more than 5th-placed AC Milan. On the other hand, Inter has been fantastic in the Champions League and eliminated AC Milan in the Semi-Finals easily. If you’re betting online, the value is on Inter.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan suffered a thigh injury against AC Milan and had to be substituted after 43 minutes. He will probably miss the Fiorentina game. One of their best defenders, Milan Skriniar, is dealing with back problems and will most likely sit this one out.
Fiorentina vs Inter Head-to-Head
After making the Champions League final at the expense of city rivals AC Milan, Inter heads into this final on the back of a 3-1 defeat at newly crowned champion Napoli, ending Inter’s amazing eight-game winning streak in all competitions.
Never having met in this final, the overall record between the sides is difficult to split, but overall, Inter leads the way with four wins to Fiorentina’s three. All of Inter’s wins came in the last four meetings and all were by a single-goal margin. Half of the last eight Coppa Italia finals were level after 90 minutes, yet only one was decided by a penalty shootout.
