Paulo Sousa drops Josip Ilicic, who’s nursing a minor injury, and brings in Khouma Babacar. Carlos Salcedo gets the nod over Nenad Tomovic. Gian Piero Gasperini has pulled Marco Sportiello in favor of Etrit Berisha. His outfield is as expected.
Florence police have cleared a suspected bomb threat outside the stadium, as a car with French license plates was left parked on the street outside the Franchi despite the requirement that all vehicles be removed ahead of the match. Police blocked off the area, but the car’s owner eventually appeared and cleared things up. Everything is now continuing as usual.
