Late news

Fiorentina boss Giuseppe Iachini has picked Federico Ceccherini over Germán Pezzella at the back. Alfred Duncan steps into the holding role while Sofyan Amrabat (suspension) and Erick Pulgar (fitness) are unavailable, with new signing Giacomo Bonaventura joining him in midfield. Franck Ribery gets the armband in Pezze’s absence.

Torino mister Marco Giampaolo has been forced into using Armando Izzo at rightback. Simone Zaza, not Simone Verdi, will partner Andrea Belotti up top.

Torino (4-3-1-2): Sirigu; Izzo, Nkoulou, Bremer, Ansaldi; Meïte, Rincón, Linetty; Berenguer; Zaza, Belotti
