Davide Ballardini has shuffled the deck quite a bit, handing an unexpected to Jawad El Yamiq in the backline, where the Moroccan defender’s pace may help contain Federico Chiesa. Further forward, ex-Fiorentina players Aleandro Rosi and Giuseppe Rossi will start on the left wing and up top, respectively.
Stefano Pioli will trot out the XI we all expected, with Bruno Gaspar starting at rightback because Vitor Hugo is hurt and Vincent Laurini is suspended.
Genoa (3-5-2): Perin (c); Spolli, Biraschi, El Yamiq; Lazović, Hiljemark, Veloso, Bertolacci, Rosi; Medeiros, Rossi
Fiorentina (4-3-2-1): Sportiello; Gaspar, Milenković, Pezzella, Biraghi; Benassi, Badelj, Veretout; Chiesa, Saponara; Simeone
