Fiorentina face off against Greek side PAOK in the first of the return group league fixtures shortly, and the lineups are up. La Viola will look to continue a perfect Europa League record, and can even clinch qualification to the next round today with a victory.
Vincenzo Montella has clearly selected a side with an eye on Sunday's big match against Napoli. The aeroplanino has rested the whole midfield and changed the formation, and for some players this feels like a run around to improve their form before facing the Neapolitans: Gonzalo, Pizarro, and Cuadrado all have points to prove after Sunday's disastrous performances, and Mario Gomez needs to get minutes in his legs. Let's hope the home fans get a fine display to warm themselves ahead of the weekend!
FIORENTINA (4-3-3): Tatarusanu; Tomovic, Gonzalo, Basanta, Pasqual; Kurtic, Pizarro, Lazzari; Cuadrado, Gomez, Vargas
PAOK (4-2-3-1): Glykos; Kitsiou, Miguel Vitor, Katsikas, Spyropoulos; Tzandaris, Tziolis; Salpingidis, Golasa, Pereyra; Athanasiadis
