Stefano Pioli is if anything reliable, and so there are no surprises in his starting lineup as he faces his former club at home in the Stadio Artemio Franchi. Bruno Gaspar is out injured, although it was unlikely he would have started over the more steady Vincent Laurini.
For Luciano Spalletti’s Internazionale, currently not having the best of times, there’s some changes from their usual starting 11. Joao Miranda and Danilo D’Ambrosio are out injured, while Andrea Ranocchia is recovered enough to start, while at attacking midfield, Joao Mario is given an unexpected start in place of Antonio Candreva.
Unfortunately, noted Fiorentina killer Mauro Icardi will remain up front, while in the midfield Spalletti will be starting Fiorentina veterans Matias Vecino and, of course, Borja Valero.
Valeri is ref for this one.
Fiorentina: (4-3-3) Sportiello; Laurini, Pezzella, Astori, Biraghi; Benassi, Badelj, Veretout; Chiesa, Simeone, Thereau
Inter: (4-2-3-1) Handanovic; Cancelo, Skriniar, Ranocchia, Santon; Vecino, Gagliardini; Joao Mario, Borja Valero, Perisic; Icardi
