Khouma Babacar retains his starting berth ahead of the returning Nikola Kalinić. Sousa’s now favoured back line of Davide Astori, Gonzalo Rodriguez, and Carlos Sanchez makes its return. But the biggest news of all is Federico Bernardeschi starts! Viva la Berna!
Who’d have thunk it. Sampdoria line up in their favoured 4-3-2-1 with Karol Linetty, Lucas Torreria and Édgar Baretto making up the tried and tested midfield three. Patrick Schick starts alongside the old head of Fabio Quagliarella. Strap yourselves in guys, I’ve got a feeling this one won't be so easy.
Fiorentina (3-4-2-1): Tatarusanu; Sanchez, Gonzalo, Astori; Milić, Borja, Badelj, Tello; Iličić, Bernardeschi; Babacar
Sampdoria (4-3-1-2): Viviano; Dodô, Silvestre, Skriniar, Bereszynski; Linetty, Torreira, Baretto; Schick, Quagliarella.
