Fiorentina vs Inter MilanCoppa Italia, KO: 20:00 May 24, 2023, Stadio Olimpico
With the Serie A title already settled, Fiorentina and Inter Milan have the chance to claim some domestic silverware as they square off in the Coppa Italia final. Both teams have shown contrasting form coming into this one and with the Nerazzurri looking particularly impressive lately, they are expected to have the upper hand on Wednesday.
Although they are likely to finish around mid-table in Serie A, Fiorentina have plenty of reasons to be pleased with their campaign this season. They are into two finials, with the Europa Conference League still to come in addition to Wednesday’s clash.
Fiorentina had a fairly smooth ride on their way to the Coppa Italia final as they mostly came through teams in the bottom half of the table. They claimed a 2-0 aggregate victory over Cremonense in the semi-finals.
The build-up to the final has been a bit rough for Fiorentina, who have claimed just two regulation time wins in their last 10 matches across all competitions. Vincenzo Italiano’s men have kept just one clean sheet in the last six matches in that run as they head to the Stadio Olimpico off the back of a 1-1 draw with Torino in a Serie A fixture on Sunday.
While they were never in contention for the Serie A title, Inter Milan still have a chance to end the season on a successful note. In addition to Wednesday’s clash, they also have a European final on the horizon with a Champions League clash with Manchester City coming up on June 10.
This is the second straight Coppa Italia final for Inter Milan having overcame Juventus to lift the title last season. Simone Inzaghi’s men once again came through the Turin club in this season’s competition, claiming a 2-1 aggregate victory in the semi-final.
Although they suffered a 3-1 defeat to Serie A champions Napoli on Sunday, Inter Milan’s build up to the Coppa Italia final has even solid. That was their only defeat in the last 10 matches across all competitions having claimed eight wins in that run.
