Stefano Pioli has shuffled the deck quite a bit, handing a competitive debut to Bartłomiej Drągowski and adding Bruno Gaspar, Carlos Sánchez, Riccardo Saponara, and Khouma Babacar to the starting lineup in what should be a 4-3-3 with the Cheese on the wing.
Marco Giampaolo has chosen bench players Valerio Verre and Ricky Álvarez for the starting lineup. Fomer Viola prospect Leonardo Capezzi is on the bench.
Fiorentina (4-3-3): Drągowski; Gaspar, Pezella, Astori, Biraghi; Benassi, Sánchez, Veretout; Chiesa, Babacar, Saponara
Sampdoria (4-3-1-2): Puggioni; Bereszynski, Silvestre, Regini, Strinić; Barreto, Torreira, Verre; Álvarez; Zapata, Caprari
