Late news

For Fiorentina, Stefano Pioli has opted for centerback Federico Ceccherini out on the right side of defense rather than Vincent Laurini. Gerson drops back into midfield to make room for Kevin Mirallas, but the bigger news is a first start in a competitive match for holding midfielder Christian Nørgaard.

Giuseppe Iachini has decided that Manuel Pasqual is only fit enough for the bench, so Luca Antonelli draws the start on the wing. Otherwise, it’s the exact Empoli XI that everyone expected.

Lineups

Fiorentina (4-3-3): Lafont; Ceccherini, Pezzella, Vitor Hugo, Biraghi; Benassi, Nørgaard, Gerson; Chiesa, Simeone, Mirallas

Empoli (3-5-2): Provedel; Maietta, Silvestre, Veseli; di Lorenzo, Bennacer, Krunić, Traoré, Antonelli; La Gumina, Caputo
