Rolando Maran has shuffled his midfield a bit, bringing Luca Cigarini in for a rare start. Viola loanee Giovanni Simeone starts at striker. With Franck Ribery still absent, Vincenzo Montella turns to Dušan Vlahović to partner Federico Chiesa up top. The rest of the lineup is a return to the usual XI with Mártin Cáceres and Pol Lirola healthy again.
Cagliari (4-3-1-2): Olsen; Cacciatore, Pisacane, Klavan, Pellegrini; Nández, Cigarini, Rog; Nainggolan; João Pedro, Simeone
Fiorentina (3-5-2): Drągowski; Milenković, Pezzella, Cáceres; Lirola, Pulgar, Badelj, Castrovilli, Dalbert; Chiesa, Vlahović
