Fiorentina vs Arsenal: Lineups and how to watch

New, comments

The Viola have sprung some big surprises with their lineup, so this one should be fascinating.

Late news

Fiorentina boss Antonio Cincotta has made some big changes. With CF Lana Clelland (knee) injured and defender/captain/heartbeat Alia Guagni unavailable due to recovery from a very busy offseason, the mister has dropped his trademark 4-4-2 in favor of a 4-3-3 to compete with the Gunners’ midfield. Francesca Durante (wearing number 2, which, ugh) replaces longtime stalwart Stéphanie Öhrström between the sticks. New signings Janni Arnth, Janelle Cordia, and Lisa de Vanna will all start as well.

Arsenal manager Joe Montemurro, on the other hand, has brought out his expected XI. Keep an eye on Danielle van de Donk in a deeper role, and obviously Vivianne Miedema up top is the one to watch.

Lineups

Fiorentina (4-3-3): Durante; Tortelli, Agard, Arnth, Philtjens; Adami, Breitner, Cordia; Thøgersen, Bonetti, de Vanna

Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Zinsberger; Maier, Beattie, Williamson, McCabe; Roord, van de Donk; Little, Evans, Mead; Miedema

How to watch

TV: No, sadly.
