With Manuel Pasqual with a light injury and Gonzalo Rodriguez suspended, Vincenzo Montella has opted to field Juan Manuel Vargas in a back four rather than use Marcos Alonso ahead of Thursday's game in Seville. Alberto Gilardino returns to the lineup in the league after scoring against Cagliari, while Josip Ilicic and Mohammed Salah support the striker in a 4-3-3. Jasmin Kurtic gets a rare start after a terrible performance away in Napoli, as Montella clearly hopes to preserve Matias Fernandez, Joaquin, and David Pizarro. A couple surprises for Cesena, as Domenico Di Carlo opts for the veteran journeyman Mudigayi in midfield.
Nothing more to say. This team and these fans need a win. Let's get it, forza viola!!
