Late-breaking news

For the bad guys, Siniša Mihajlović has sprung a couple of mild surprises. Ricardo Montolivo will start in the middle against his old club, joining Andrea Bertolacci in a surprisingly positive midfield. Speed merchant M'Baye Niang will get the start up top. Paulo Sousa has also sprung a mild surprise, keeping Giuseppe Rossi on the bench after rumors that the striker would start. Mario Suárez replaces Milan Badelj, as predicted.
