Giuseppe Iachini opted for a 3-4-3 with Bartłomiej Drągowski returning to his spot between the sticks. Federico Ceccherini, Martín Caceres, Milan Badelj, Alfred Duncan, and Lorenzo Venuti all started, with Pol Lirola on the left and Dušan Vlahović up top. Walter Zenga ran out the XI we expected except that Walter Birsa came into midfield. The Giovanni Simeone-João Pedro pairing continued up top.
Cards: Chiesa 9’, Duncan 80’; Mattiello 71’, Lykogiannis 90’+2
Fiorentina remain 13th with 35 points, 8 above Genoa in the final relegation spot. A Sampdoria win at Atalanta would push the Blucerchiati even on points but would leave them behind on head-to-head results. Parma remain 4 points above the Viola in 12th, although the Crociati have a chance to extend that lead if they get a result at AS Roma later today.
