Vincenzo Montella and his opposite number Jocelyn Gourvennec (what a freaking name, am I right?) have their lineups up. Micah Richards and Milan Badelj will have to wait for their first competitive games for Fiorentina, but we will finally get to see the fabled Jose Maria Basanta and the passionate Jasmin Kurtic against Coupe de France champions Guingamp.
Borja Valero and Mario Gomez are asked to play through their less-than-scintillating beginning to the season, while club captain Manuel Pasqual reclaims his post from Marcos Alonso for a cross-happy left side of the Viola attack. Curiosity as Alberto Aquilani sits out, despite being the best midfielder against Genoa and speaking in yesterday's press conference. Here are the full lineups:
Fiorentina (4-3-3): Tatarusanu; Tomovic, Savic, Basanta, Pasqual; Kurtic, Pizarro, Borja Valero; Cuadrado, Gomez, Vargas
Guingamp (4-4-2): Samassa; Sankoh, Kerbrat, Angiua, Leveque; Pied, Diallo, Mathis, Beauvue; Marveaux, Mandanne
