Despite speculation Fiorentina would try a 4 man backline, Paulo Sousa is sticking with the status quo. With Davide Astori still out, Carlos Salcedo gets his start next to Nenad Tomovic and Gonzalo. Hrvoje Milic once again starts over Maxi Olivera, who may be regretting his choice in teams by now. Cristian Tello has been benched for Federico Bernardsechi. Matias Vecino is back in the squad, although on the bench considering Carlos Sanchez’s form. Ianis Hagi also got a surprise callup.
Carlos Bacca gets the start up front for Vicenzo Montella’s AC Milan and its 4-3-3 formation.
Fiorentina (3-4-2-1): Tatarusanu; Tomovic, Rodriguez, Salcedo; Bernardeschi, Sanchez, Badelj, Milic; Ilicic, Borja Valero; Kalinic
Milan (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Calabria, Paletta, Romagnoli, De Sciglio; Kucka, Montolivo, Bonaventura; Suso, Bacca, Niang
