Fiorentina vs. Inter: the complete guide

After the Supercoppa Italiana triumph, Inter are ready to get back to action as they face Fiorentina away from home, on Sunday 28 January at 20:45 CET, on matchday 22 in Serie A 2023/24.

PREVIOUS MEETINGS

Fiorentina and Inter have met each other 171 times in Serie A: the Nerazzurri lead the head-to-head record with 71 wins against the Viola's 45, with 55 draws completing the picture. This game has recently thrown up thrilling encounters and fireworks: in the last eleven Serie A meetings between the sides in Florence, 46 goals have been scored, with an average of 4.2 per match. In the reverse fixture this season, the Nerazzurri team netted four thanks to a brace from Lautaro Martinez and goals from Thuram and Calhanoglu.

NERAZZURRI STATS

Inter are unbeaten in their last six away games to Fiorentina in Serie A: three draws which were then followed by three wins. The Nerazzurri have found the net in each of their last eight away games against the Viola in the league. The excellent form of Simone Inzaghi's team is reflected in this stat: Inter have won all of their four matches played in 2024, two in the league and two in the Supercoppe Italiana. The Nerazzurri have not started a calendar year with four wins out of four since 2017.

THE NUMBERS OF TIKUS

His performances and plays have now become one of the Nerazzurri's strengths. Marcus Thuram, who scored in the reverse fixture game against the Viola, has scored eight goals in Serie A this season. In the era of three-points-for-a-win era, only four players in their debut season with Inter in Serie A have reached goalscoring double figures: Lukaku, Eto'o and Djorkaeff.

DIMARCO'S PROFESSION: PROVIDER

Federico Dimarco's offensive contribution is notable for Simone Inzaghi's team. The Nerazzurri winger has provided five assists this season; no defender has done better.

LAUTARO: 123 TIMES

Thevteam's driving force and technical leader. With his winner that sealed the Supercoppa Italiana final, Lautaro Martínez has now scored 123 goals wearing the Inter shirt, reaching Christian Vieri in ninth position in the goalscoring rankings. Eighth place is only one goal away, currently occupied by Mauro Icardi with 124 goals. The Inter captain's statistics show his exponential growth: he is among one of only four players to have taken part in at least 20 goals in Europe's top-five leagues in the last four seasons.

MKHITARYAN'S MOMENT

Dynamism, flexibility and effectiveness: three adjectives to describe Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who has stood out as a finisher in recent matches. After providing assists against Hellas Verona and Monza, the Armenian could provide an assist in three consecutive appearances for the second time in Europe's top-five leagues, after having done it in August 2017 for Manchester United.
