Vincenzo Montella has opted for the perhaps safer option in midfield, favoring Milan Badelj over David Pizarro in the center of the park, but otherwise the team is as expected for Fiorentina in this HUGE match in Seville. Borja Valero and Matias Fernandez both start in a technical midfield. Joaquin will be eager to impress in a personal derby for the ex-Real Betis man, while a weight of expectation hangs on the shoulders of Mario Gomez.

Carlos Bacca headlines the Sevilla eleven with no surprise selections from coach Unai Emery. The home team will be eager to seize an advantage in the tie early, but that Fiorentina lineup can do some damage on its day. Here's a prayer, a drink, a song: FORZA VIOLA
