No prizes for guessing that Fiorentina line up in Stefano Pioli's favoured 4-2-3-1. Bruno Gaspar fills in a right back after assisting Milan Badelj's goal against Sampdoria, and Davide Astori, Germán Pezzella and Cristiano Biraghi make up the rest of the back line. Badelj and Jordan Veretout hold down the midfield pivoting spots, and Marco Benassi, Cyril Théréau and Federico Chiesa play supporting roles in behind Giovanni Simeone. The smart money would be on Théréau playing a second striker role shadowing Simeone, giving La Viola more of a direct threat in front of goal than previously seen so far this season.

For Hellas, Thomas Hertaux and Alex Ferrari start in defence, with Bruno Zuculini and Marcel Büchel playing ahead of them. Ex-Inter midfielder Daniel Bessa and on-loan Roma prospect Daniele Verde play a supporting role for journeyman Giampaolo Pazzini.

Line Ups:

Fiorentina: (4-2-3-1) Sportiello; Bruno Gaspar, Astori, Pezzella, Biraghi; Badelj, Veretout; Benassi, Théréau, Chiesa; Simeone.
