Stefano Pioli has opted to bring Alban Lafont back into the lineup, sending Bartłomiej Drągowski back to the bench. Marko Pjaca and Marco Benassi are in as well; this sure looks like the mister’s new starting eleven. Leonardo Semplici has set out the lineup we expected.
Fiorentina (4-3-3): Lafont; Milenković, Pezzella, Vitor Hugo, Biraghi; Benassi, Veretout, Gerson; Chiesa, Simeone, Pjaca
SPAL (3-5-2): Gomis; Cionek, Vicari, Felipe; Lazzari, Kurtić, Schiattarella, Missiroli, Fares; Petagna, Antenucci
