Fiorentina manager Vincenzo Montella runs out his usual XI except for Kevin-Prince Boateng, who joins Dušan Vlahović in place of Federico Chiesa. AS Roma mister Paulo Fonseca opts for as many ex-Viola players as possible, with Gianluca Mancini, Jordan Veretout, and Niccolò Zaniolo all in the side.
Fiorentina (3-5-2): Drągowski; Milenković, Pezzella, Cáceres; Lirola, Pulgar, Badelj, Castrovilli, Dalbert; Vlahović, Boateng
Roma (4-2-3-1): López; Florenzi, Smalling, Mancini, Kolarov; Verwtout, Diawara; Zaniolo, Pellegrini, Perotti; Džeko
