Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo has named just about the exact XI we predicted, featuring former Viola stars Juan Cuadrado and Federico Chiesa.
Fiorentina mister Cesare Prandelli’s XI has picked what looks like a very defensive formation on paper, with Martín Cáceres operating on the right side of a back 5 (!). Borja Valero slots into midfield ahead of Giacomo Bonaventura, but the rest of the XI are the usual suspects and likely to be carrying some very heavy legs in their third match this week.
Juventus (4-4-2): Szczęsny; Cuadrado, de Ligt, Bonucci, Alex Sandro; Chiesa, McKennie, Betancur, Ramsey; Morata, Ronaldo
Fiorentina (5-3-2): Drągowski; Cáceres, Milenković, Pezzella, Igor, Biraghi; Valero, Amrabat, Castrovilli; Vlahović, Ribery
