Fiorentina’s Moena retreat is entering its fourth day, and that means the club’s first friendly has arrived (at 5pm CET). It’s Vincenzo Italiano’s first opportunity to show us what he plans for his Viola, with his 4-3-3 high-pressing system about to be put on display. Fiorentina’s opponents are sv Ostermünchen eV, who as far as I can tell play in the 10th tier in Germany. The final scoreline doesn’t particularly matter, but what happens on the field does. There’s a good chance this is the last time we see Pol Lirola in purple, and also a great opportunity for youngsters like Dimo Krastev and Christian Dalle Mura to impress.
Fiorentina (4-3-3): Terracciano; Lirola, Milenkovic, Dalle Mura; Biraghi, Bonaventura, Krastev; Duncan, Callejon, Vlahovic; Sottil
sv Ostermünchen eV (4-4-2): Schenk; Bloeir, Schiedermier, Kuchler; Bell, Dirscherl, Baumann; Mayr, Krichbaumer, Niedermier; Bauer
