Time for Inter to start worrying

The Nerazzurri are now without a win in their last five league matches and in danger of slipping out the Champions League places, writes Nick Valerio.

The slump goes on. In truth, it could and should have been a lot worse for Luciano Spalletti’s men.

Despite opening the scoring through talisman Mauro Icardi, Fiorentina dominated from start to finish and their stoppage-time equaliser was the least the hosts deserved, though both teams can feel aggrieved for different reasons.

Borja Valero versus the Viola

Tears could be shed when Borja Valero visits his beloved Fiorentina, but there can never be bitterness for the Mayor of Florence, writes Giancarlo Rinaldi.

Roberto Baggio could not bring himself to take a penalty, while Manuel Rui Costa always seemed to play a little below his own immense standards. And Gabriel Batistuta, of course, burst into tears when he scored a goal. Playing against Fiorentina, for any former Viola legend, can do strange things to a man.
