Late News

Fiorentina manager Cesare Prandelli looks to have gone with a 4-3-3 when it had looked like it could have been a 4-2-3-1 but Duncan has been a late change after Bonaventura is unfit to start. He has opted to leave out those just returned from a long international away trip, so no place for Martín Cáceres, Martinez Quarta or Erick Pulgar. Dušan Vlahović gets the nod up front with Igor starting at the back.

Benevento boss Filippo Inzaghi goes with his usual 4-3-2-1. This time its Gabriele Moncini leading the attack, perhaps due to Gianluca Lapadula having had 2 international games with Peru during the week. Former Viola Bryan Dabo is unavailable after testing postive for Covid-19 having returned from international duty. Riccardo Improta makes his first Serie A start of the season


Fiorentina (4-3-3): Drągowski; Milenković, Pezzella, Igor, Biraghi; Amrabat, Duncan, Castrovilli; Kouamé, Ribery, Vlahović

Benevento (4-3-2-1): Montipò; Letizia, Caldirola, Glik, Barba; Schiattarella, Hetemaj, Ioniţă; Improta, Sau; Moncini
