Fiorentina vs Udinese: Lineups and how to watch

The Viola make just one change to their XI, and it’s probably not the one fans wanted to see.

Late news

Fiorentina boss Giuseppe Iachini makes just one change to the XI that failed so spectacularly against Spezia last week: José Callejón will make his first start up top in relief of Franck Ribery, who’s not even on the bench (and no, we don’t know exactly what’s up with that). The midfield remains unchanged, much to the dismay of many fans.

Udinese mister Luca Gotti has named the exact same lineup as he did for last week’s win over Parma, with Viola ex Sebastian de Maio in defense and once-and-future transfer target Rodrigo de Paul in central midfield.


Fiorentina (3-5-2): Drągowski; Milenković, Pezzella, Cáceres; Lirola, Bonaventura, Amrabat, Castrovilli, Biraghi; Vlahović, Callejón

Udinese (3-5-2): Nicholas; Becão, Samir, de Maio; Molina, De Paul, Arslan, Pereyra, Ouwejan; Okaka, Lasagna
