New, comments

The Viola badly need three points in their first match of the season at the Artemio Franchi, but the Flying Donkeys will try to maintain the momentum from their hot start.

Late news and injuries

Paulo Sousa will have Borja Valero (ankle) available, but will have to do without club captain Gonzalo Rodriguez (hamstring) and Mauro Zarate. Marcos Alonso will move to the backline, with Hrvoje Milic replacing him on the wing. Carlos Sanchez will make his first start in midfield in place of Milan Badelj. Federico Bernardeschi will drop to the bench.

Rolando Maran is without Antonio Floro Flores (hamstring), but has an otherwise healthy squad. Keep an eye on ex-Viola defenders Dario Dainelli and Massimo Gobbi (and Alessandro Gamberini on the bench).
