Late news

Despite a rash of absences at the back, Fiorentina mister Vincenzo Montella has picked what looks like a 3-5-2, albeit with personnel to easily change to a 4-3-3. Milan Badelj returns to the XI, while Luca Ranieri steps into the back line and Rachid Ghezzal will make his first start. Parma boss Roberto D’Aversa also has a host of injuries forcing his hand, so he’s sent out the lineup we expected with the exception Matteo Scozzarella starting in the middle.

Lineups

Fiorentina (3-5-2): Drągowski; Venuti, Milenković, Ranieri; Ghezzal, Pulgar, Badelj, Castrovilli, Dalbert; Chiesa, Boateng

Parma (4-3-1-2): Sepe; Darmian, Iacoponi, Dermaku, Pezzella; Kucka, Scozzarella, Hernani; Kulusevski; Gervinho, Karamoh
