Fiorentina vs Milan: Lineups and how to watch

The Viola have trotted out a very odd looking XI featuring nobody who looks like keeping width on the left.

Late news

Fiorentina boss Cesare Prandelli is doing some weird stuff. This is either a 4-3-3 or a 3-5-2; Martín Cáceres could be a leftback with Lucas Martínez Quarta at rightback, but the Uruguayan could also be a left wingback with Valentin Eysseric or Gaetano Castrovilli at right wingback. Eysseric could also be on the right wing or in central midfield. Basically, it’s a massive headache if you’re trying to piece together what this will look like.

AC Milan manager Stefano Pioli, on the other hand, has trotted out the exact XI we predicted, with Zlatan Ibrahimović returning to the XI from injury up front.


Fiorentina (4-3-3, maybe?): Drągowski; Martínez Quarta, Milenković, Pezzella, Cáceres; Bonaventura, Pulgar, Castrovilli; Eysseric, Vlahović, Ribery

AC Milan (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Dalot, Tomori, Kjær, Hernández; Kessié, Tonali; Saelemaekers, Çalhanoğlu, Díaz; Ibrahimović
