Vincenzo Montella changes the formation, but still names a strong starting eleven to face Atalanta. Micah Richards gets a start, while Matias Fernandez and David Pizarro both rest. Alessandro Diamanti will have to wait for his first start for Fiorentina, while Mario Gomez starts in an attacking trident flanked by Juan Cuadrado and Juan Manuel Vargas.

Stefano Colantuono fields a rotated side featuring long-monitored Fiore prospect Daniele Baselli in midfield alongside ex-Viola Giulio Migliaccio. Ex-Toro Rolando Bianchi leads the line for la Dea.

FIORENTINA (4-3-3): TATARUSANU; RICHARDS, GONZALO, SAVIC, ALONSO; KURTIC, BADELJ, BORJA; CUADRADO, GOMEZ, VARGAS
