Montella’s trying out some new stuff before the real season begins and we’re into that.

Late news

Federico Chiesa will start from the bench as Tòfol Montiel gets his first-ever start with the senior team. Kevin-Prince Boateng will play as the striker, which should be fascinating to watch. At the back, Cristiano Biraghi is healthy enough to play, while Luca Ranieri will deputize for Germán Pezzella. Pol Lirola gets the nod on the right side of defense as well. Milan Badelj will serve as the captain; it’s like he never left.

For Fatih Terim’s Galatasaray, it’s more or less business as usual, although fullback Martin Linnes will start on the wing. More importantly, though, look for Terim to get a warm welcome at the Franchi.


Fiorentina (4-3-3): Dragowski; Lirola, Milenkovic, Ranieri, Biraghi; Benassi, Badelj, Castrovilli; Sottil, Boateng, Montiel

Galatasaray (4-2-3-1): Muslera; Mariano, Luyindama, Marcao, Nagatomo; Donk, Seri; Fegouli, Belhanda, Linnes; Diagne

How to watch

TV: If you’re in Turkey, it’s on Spor Smart. Otherwise, it’s not televised.

Online: The only legal stream for this one is Viola Channel, so there shouldn’t be any issues with, like, illegal streams. If anyone asks for or links to one, there will be deletions, bans, and general questioning of mental acuity. If you’re the Twitter type, give us a follow, as we’ll be providing live updates there. Otherwise, keep it in the comments for trepidation with the best damn sports community on the internet.

Forza Viola!
