Fiorentina boss Cesare Prandelli had to adjust on the fly with Franck Ribery as a late injury scratch, so naturally turned to Valentin Eysseric over Christian Kouamé (please scream inside your heart). Martín Cáceres joined Ribery in the stands, so Lorenzo Venuti started as well. Borja Valero got the nod over Erick Pulgar in midfield.
Inter Milan mister Antonio Conte picked Alexis Sánchez over Lautaro Martínez up front but otherwise has just about his strongest XI out there, indicating that he’s prioritizing the league over the Coppa Italia tie with Juventus in the midweek.
Fiorentina (3-5-1-1): Drągowski; Martínez Quarta, Pezzella, Igor; Venuti, Bonaventura, Amrabat, Valero, Biraghi; Eysseric; Vlahović
Inter Milan (3-5-2): Handanović; Škriniar, de Vrij, Bastoni; Hakimi, Barella, Brozović, Vidal, Perišić; Lukaku, Sánchez
