Benevento boss Filippo Inzaghi has picked the XI we predicted, with fantastically-named Nicolas Viola at the heart of midfield.
Fiorentina manager Cesare Prandelli has made some big changes: Martín Cáceres is back at wingback with Lorenzo Venuti, meaning Cristiano drops to the bench and a right-footed player will start on the left. Giacomo Bonaventura steps into the engine room next to Erick Pulgar with both Gaetano Castrovilli and Sofyan Amrabat injured. Valentin Eysseric might play on the right wing but could also slot into central midfield, making it a 3-5-2.
Benevento (3-5-2): Montipò; Tuia, Glik, Barba; Tello, Hetemaj, Viola, Ioniță, Improta; Gaich, Caprari
Fiorentina (3-4-3?): Drągowski; Milenković, Pezzella, Martínez Quarta; Cáceres, Bonaventura, Pulgar, Venuti; Eysseric, Vlahović, Ribery
