Inter Milan hitman Diego Milito announced his return from injury hell with a brace at Serie A newbies Sassuolo last time out and can break Fiorentina hearts at the Giuseppe Meazza with the opening goal at odds of 7/2.
The striker, who has scored 88 goals in six seasons in Italy’s top flight, came on as a 54th-minute substitute for Rodrigo Palacio and also laid on an assist during his short cameo.
Against the Viola both forwards are set to feature and bwin will refund losing stakes on first goalscorer and correct score bets if Milito’s compatriot finds the back of the net at any point in the match.
Palacio is in imperious striking form recently, with three goals so far this season and eight in nine Serie A games stretching back to last March so your first goal bet is covered if he continues that cracking run.
These teams come into the game with ten points each from their first four games, but Inter’s superiority in this fixture for over a decade and home advantage sees them favourites at 19/20.
The last time Fiorentina left San Siro with three points after facing the Nerazurri was in May 2000, with Inter winning a perfect ten out of ten league games in Milan during that 12-season period.
Vincenzo Montella’s side are 14/5 to break that desperate run here and the draw is 12/5.
Fiorentina’s Europa League commitments mean they’ve played three more games this season and their opponents – who are unburdened by continental competition – have shown the better form in the league with three more goals scored and three fewer conceded.
A 1-1 draw at home to champions Juventus is the only game Inter have dropped points or even conceded in so far this season and after six different players got on the scoresheet against last year’s Serie B champions Walter Mazzarri’s men will be confident of another win going into this tie.
