Paulo Sousa seems to finally be willing to move to a more traditional 4 man defensive line, starting Maxi Olivera with the three usual suspects. In front of them is a balanced midfield trio of Milan Badelj, Matias Vecino, and Sebastian Cristoforo, with Borja Valero again in the hole behind the striker duo of Khouma Babacar and Nikola Kalinic, despite the latter’s poor form. Nevertheless a welcome change that should benefit the midfield.
For Slovan, Czech legend Milan Baros has been benched as coach Jindrich Trpisovsky goes with an expected 4-2-3-1 formation.
Slovan Liberec (4-2-3-1): Dubravka; Coufal, Hovorka, Karafiat, Sykora; Folprecht, Breite; Navratil, Sevcik, Vuch; Komlicenko
Fiorentina (4-3-1-2): Tatarusanu, Tomovic, Gonzalo, Astori, M.Olivera, Badelj, Vecino, Cristoforo, B. Valero, Babacar, Kalinic
