Vincenzo Montella returns to the formula that was successful away in Verona to face Zdenek Zeman's Cagliari. 3-5-2 with Mario Gomez and Juan Cuadrado up front, although expect the Colombian to swap places with Joaquin from time to time on the wing. The Spaniard gets his second consecutive start after being snubbed for most of the season, while Matias Fernandez also starts in a Fiorentina team with (once again) no Italians in the eleven. The "regulars" also regain their places after Thursday's Europa League win.
As for Cagliari, they must make do without thteir best striker Marco Sau, although they maintain plenty of trickery and pace in attack.
Let's get a big 3 points on a tough field! Forza Viola!
