Vincenzo Montella switched things up in a big way, using a 3-5-2 formation and handing first starts to Franck Ribery and Martín Cáceres, with Dalbert working at left wingback. Maurizio Sarri, on the other hand, sent out his expected XI.
The Stadio Artemio Franchi, meanwhile, was stunning.

Despite a hatful of chances, the hosts couldn’t breach the Juventus goal.
New Fiorentina signing Ribery made this incredible tackle on Cristiano Ronaldo, which was pretty awesome.
