Our prediction for this Coppa Italia match:
Stadio Artemio Franchi will host Wednesday’s Coppa Italia clash between Fiorentina and Inter. The Viola were more than fortunate to beat Cagliari in their last Serie A game as the Sardinians failed to convert a penalty in the first half. Fiorentina have been showing signs of improvement of late, and they are surely capable of matching Inter, who are fully focused on the national championship. The Nerazzurri came from behind to share the spoils with Roma in the Serie A derby at the weekend, with the team remaining in the title race.
Since Antonio Conte is likely to rest several first-team regulars in Wednesday’s Italian Cup game, we are tempted to put our money on draw. Matteo Darmian suffered an injury in the 2-2 draw with Roma, with the former Manchester United defender joining Vecino, D’Ambrosio, and Pinamonti in the recovery room. The good news for the hosts is that important midfielder Gaetano Castrovilli returns from suspension.
