Time for the friendlies that feel more like real games. Vincenzo Montella's Fiorentina face off against a Malaga team that are a couple years (and players) removed from their Champions League heights, but are still a tough team to beat in their home stadium.

Juan Cuadrado doesn't start for la Viola which is probably... erm... just because he isn't fit yet... totally. BUT we do get to see Giuseppe Rossi and Mario Gomez spearhead the attack again, and the full strength "Three Tenors" midfield for the first time this preseason.

Here are the lineups for you folks.

FIORENTINA (4-3-1-2): Neto; Roncaglia, Gonzalo, Savic, Alonso; Aquilani, Pizarro, B. Valero; Ilicic; Rossi, Gomez

Malaga (4-2-3-1): Ochoa; Rosales, Sanchez, Welington, Antunes; Camacho, Darder; Horta, Duda, Castillejo; Santa Cruz
