As Fiorentina gear up of yet another season of certain frustration and bonafide disappointment, the revealing of the Coppa Italia fixtures provides a welcome respite from the never ever ending updates on the growing queue of current players booking a one way ticket out of Florence.

To cut to the chase, the release of the 2016/17 Coppa Italia fixtures has thrown Fiorentina up against capital club Lazio. By no means are Lazio a ticket to the Semi-finals, however there was definitely more challenging ties. Last years 1-0 defeat in Naples at the quarter final stage was as predictable as it was dull.

Should Stefano Pioli manage to guide Fiorentina past Lazio they will face the winner of the Derby della Madonnina, and considering the Mercato both Milanese clubs are having it presents Pioli with one of the toughest ties possible.

However, no Europe this year will likely mean there is a lot more in the tank come Coppa Italia time, and if there was ever a time to avenge the Coppa Italia Final loss in 2014, this season would be it. Forza Viola.
