It's a smashing little Sunday in Serie A. We've already had Inter taking on Torino, the Rome Derby, and in England people have been comparing Jamie Vardy to Gabriel Batistuta. Now that we've all laughed ourselves to death, it's time for the big one. The Real Deal. The Main Event.

Some-time Scudetto hopefuls Fiorentina are travelling to the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris to face Sampdoria. Samp are doing ok at the moment, sitting comfortably in midtable. But it's never an easy place to go, so tonight's game is something of a challenge. Join us in the comments and on Twitter for up to date, insightful views into the game. By which we mean puns and gifs. More puns and gifs than you can shake a stick at.

With that in mind, how are the teams lining up?


Sampdoria (4-3-3): Viviano, De Silvestri, Silvestre, Zukanovic, Pereira, Barreto, Fernando, Soriano, Carbonero, Muriel, Eder.

FIORENTINA (3-4-2-1): Tatarusanu, Roncaglia, Gonzalo, Astori; Bernardeschi, Vecino, Badelj, Pasqual; Borja Valero, Ilicic; Kalinic.
