AS Roma boss Paulo Fonseca has, naturally, started ex-Viola players Gianluca Mancini and Jordan Veretout. Marash Kumbulla, Amadou Diawara, and Bruno Peres all return to the XI as well. Fiorentina manager Cesare Prandelli returns Sofyan Amrabat to the starting lineup (thank goodness) with Lorenzo Venuti at wingback and Erick Pulgar continuing in the holding role. The real point of interest is Igor at left wingback, either to give Cristiano Biraghi a break or to add extra defensive stability.
Fiorentina (3-5-2): Drągowski; Milenković, Pezzella, Martínez Quarta; Venuti, Amrabat, Pulgar, Castrovilli, Igor; Vlahović, Ribery
Roma (3-4-2-1): López; Mancini, Cristante, Kumbulla; Peres, Veretout, Diawara, Spinazzola; Pellegrini, Mkhitaryan; Mayoral
