Minute Text commentary
48' The first half comes to an end in Florence: Borja Valero's goal after eight minutes is the difference at the break
47' Chiesa's cross from the right flank is dangerous: Handanovic gets his hands to it before the Nerazzurri clear
45' Three minutes have been added on at the Franchi
43' A brilliant save from Dragowski, who has to change direction to keep out Lukaku's header following Biraghi's cross
39' Lautaro Martinez has the ball in the net but it's ruled out following a VAR check: Lukaku was offside during the build-up
34' Inter break quickly through Lautaro, whose ball to Lukaku is slightly short. The Belgian is challenged by Milenkovic, who does enough to deny the Belgian striker
32' Milenkovic's header ends up safely in Handanovic's hands
31' Boateng attempts a back-heel after pinball in the Inter box. Biraghi intercepts and boots the ball clear
27' Brozovic is booked, meaning the Croatian will miss Inter vs. Genoa through suspension
26' Lautaro momentarily gets in behind the Viola's defence but Pezzella gets in the way of his ball towards Lautaro
21' Skiniar finds Lukaku, who then looks to lay the ball off to one of his teammates. Fiorentina's defence read the situation and eliminate the danger
17' Dalbert whips it in, Skriniar gets it clear
14' Handanovic makes a magnificent save to keep out Badelj's shot from the edge of the box
13' Lautaro Martinez goes for the bicycle kick following Lukaku's deflected effort. El Toro connects well but Dragowski saves
10' Dalbert has a go from distance: the strike is powerful but too close to Handanovic
8' GOOAAALLLLLLL! A great bit of play by the Nerazzurri's number 20, who fires past Dragowski at his near post! 1-0 to Inter!
7' Badelj goes in hard on Martinez but Mariani waves play on. Borja Valero then puts the ball out of play so El Toro can receive treatment
2' Bastoni picks out D'Ambrosio at the far post but the number 33's headed lay-off is inaccurate
1' Off we go: the Nerazzurri get the ball rolling. FORZA INTER!!!
1' Antonio Conte has once again gone with a 3-5-2 formation, with the Inter Coach having made one change from the Barcelona match: Bastoni is in the side in Godin's place
1' Inter and Fiorentina have taken to the pitch at the Franchi and are ready to take each other on on matchday 16 in Serie A

44' Conte makes his last substitution: Godin takes Bastoni's place

39' Fiorentina make a change: Eysseric replaces Castrovilli. Antonio Conte shakes things up too: Politano and Agoume are on for Lautaro and Borja Valero

Fiorentina and Inter have drawn two of their last three Serie A meetings (a win for the Nerazzurri), as many draws as in the previous 18.

 

Fiorentina have not lost in their last five Serie A home games against Inter (W3 D2) - they have not recorded a longer unbeaten run against the Nerazzurri since 2000 (12).

 

Fiorentina have lost their last four league games: in the three-point era, only twice have the Viola lost five in a row, one with Montella last season, one with Chiarugi in 2002.

Fiorentina have gained 16 points in the first 15 games of this Serie A season, in the 2000s they gained fewer only in 2001/02 (14).

Only three teams before Inter 2019/20 had won their first seven away games in a Serie A season: Milan 1992/93, Juventus 2018/19 (both champions at the end of the year) and Lazio 2002/03 (fourth at the end of the season) – only the Rossoneri and the Bianconeri also won the eighth.

Inter’s Matías Vecino first six games in Serie A were with Fiorentina in the 2013/14 season (his debut against the Nerazzurri). He also played 61 matches for the Viola between 2015 and 2017.

No team have conceded more headed goals than Fiorentina in this Serie A season (six), while none have conceded fewer than Inter (one) - in addition, only Cagliari (seven) have scored more such goals than the Nerazzurri (six).
