Sampdoria manager Marco Giampaolo springs a surprise, moving to a 4-3-3 instead of his usual 4-3-1-2 and leaving Fabio Quagliarella alone up front with Abdelhamid Sabiri on the wing and Ronaldo Vieira coming into midfield. Fiorentina boss Vincenzo Italiano sends out the XI we expected, with Lorenzo Venuti in at rightback as Álvaro Odriozola isn’t quite fit enough to start yet.
Sampdoria (4-3-3): Audero; Bereszynski, Colley, Ferrari, Augello; Candreva, Rincón, Vieira, Thorsby, Sabiri; Quagliarella
Fiorentina (4-3-3): Terracciano; Venuti, Milenković, Igor, Biraghi; Bonaventura, Torreira, Duncan; Ikoné, Cabral, González
