Despite initial speculation, Paulo Sousa has decided on a more traditional 4-3-3 instead of his preferred emphasis on wide play. Many of Fiorentina international players are being rested today, most notably Gonzalo Rodriguez, Nikola Kalinić, Josip Iličić, and Matías Fernández.

Matías Vecino is set to replace Mario Suárez as the holding midfielder alongside Milan Badelj, giving the team a more positive central midfield.

The biggest news today is of course Giuseppe Rossi getting the start alongside Khouma Babacar and Federico Bernardeschi.

Lineups

FIORENTINA (4-3-3): Tatarusanu; Tomovic, Astori, Alonso, Pasqual; Vecino, Borja Valero, Badelj; Bernardeschi, Babacar, Rossi

Genoa (3-4-3): Lamanna; De Maio, Burdisso, Izzo; Cissokho, Rincon, T. Costa, Laxalt; Capel, Pandev, Ntcham
