Italian Serie A match preview 26 September 2020: Inter vs Fiorentina. Serie A Week 2 – Saturday 26 Sep 2020 (19.45 BST time).
Inter begin their season as potential Scudetto favourites, having strengthened their squad in Antonio Conte’s image, but Fiorentina started with a win.
The Nerazzurri saw their Week 1 fixture with Benevento postponed to September 30, as their 2019-20 season ended so late due to reaching the Europa League Final.
That defeat to Sevilla continues to smart and prompted the club to follow Conte’s vision all the way, with the arrival of Arturo Vidal and Aleksandar Kolarov, along with Achraf Hakimi.
Fiorentina began their season with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Torino, decided by Gaetano Castrovilli.
Sofyan Amrabat was suspended for that game and therefore makes his debut in the Viola jersey.
He could soon be joined in midfield by ex-Inter man Borja Valero, who returned to his beloved Florence this summer, and former Milan star Giacomo Bonaventura.
