Stefano Pioli has handed Luis Muriel a start out wide in what in what the club says will be a 4-3-3, although it’s just as likely that it’ll wind up being a 3-5-2. Edimilson Fernandes gets the nod over Marco Benassi in midfield.
Marco Giampaolo, on the other hand, has opted for Lorenzo Tonelli at the back over Omar Colley. The team is otherwise as expected, with Gastón Ramírez starting over Riccardo Saponara at the trequartista spot.
Fiorentina (4-3-3): Lafont; Milenković, Pezzella, Vitor Hugo, Biraghi; Fernandes, Veretout, Gerson; Chiesa, Simeone, Muriel
Sampdoria (4-3-1-2): Audero; Bereszyński, Tonelli, Andersen, Murru; Praet, Ekdal, Jankto; Ramírez; Caprari, Quagliarella
