Parma boss Roberto d’Aversa has opted for Yann Karamoh up top instead of the red-hot Andreas Cornelius, adding even more pace to an already lethally quick attack.
Fiorentina manager Giuseppe Iachini has made some major changes to his XI following the capitulation against Sassuolo on Wednesday. Pietro Terracciano, Igor, Lorenzo Venuti, Alfred Duncan, Marco Benassi, and Patrick Cutrone will all start, with Federico Chiesa, Gaetano Castrovilli, and Bartłomiej Drągowski dropping to the bench for some much-needed rest.
Parma (4-3-3): Sepe; Darmian, Iacoponi, Alves, Gagliolo; Kucka, Brugman, Kurtić; Gervinho, Karamoh, Kulusevski
Fiorentina (3-5-2): Terracciano; Milenković, Pezzella, Igor; Venuti, Duncan, Pulgar, Benassi, Dalbert; Cutrone, Ribery
