Join us in the comments for the biggest Friday match since you were a high school football star in West Texas.

Italian League Serie A TIM 2017-2018
Biggest stage of his young life.

Late news

Stefano Pioli has shuffled his back line, moving Germán Pezzella to rightback in an attempt to counter the aerial prowess of Mario Mandžukić, with Nikola Milenković taking his place next to Davide Astori. Further forward, Gil Dias will start a second consecutive match for just the second time this year, which means he may have officially passed Cyril Théréau on the depth chart.

Max Allegri will hand Federico Bernardeschi a start in his first return to the Artemio Franchi since the youngster forced a move away after claiming he wanted “to be like Antognoni,” so expect a raucous reception. Elsewhere, Claudio Marchisio gets his league first start since November.

Lineups

Fiorentina (4-3-3): Sportiello; Pezzella, Milenković, Astori, Biraghi; Benassi, Badelj, Veretout; Chiesa, Simeone, Dias

Juventus (4-3-3): Buffon; Lichsteiner, Benatia, Chiellini, Alex Sandro; Khedira, Pjanić, Marchisio; Bernardeschi, Higuaín, Mandžukić
