Vincenzo Montella's team selection today for a difficult away tie to Napoli either shows supreme confidence in Napoli's lack of form or a signal that the Europa League is now very much the priority. Fiorentina switch to a back four with Gonzalo rested and Richards and fit again Manuel Pasqual slotting in at right and left back respectively. Milan Badelj also returns from suspension in midfield. Mohammed Salah is a surprise late inclusion in the starting line up coming in for Mario Gomez.

With Napoli having only gained 8 points from heir last 8 league games and also looking ahead to their Europa League clash with Wolfsburg - could this gamble pay off? We will soon find out! Forza Viola!

Napoli (4-2-3-1): Andujar; Maggio, Albiol Koulibaly, Strinic; D. Lopez, Gargano; Callejon, Gabbiadini, Mertens; Higuain
