No big surprises for the Viola, but the visitors set out a very defensive XI.

Late news

Fiorentina boss Vincenzo Italiano opts for Jonathan Ikoné over Riccardo Saponara on the wing, while Lucas Torreira has a mild fitness issue so Sofyan Amrabat will anchor the midfield behind Alfred Duncan and Giacomo Bonaventura. AS Roma manager Jose Mourinho picks a very defensive XI, opting for 4 central midfielders to cram the middle and control the pace. Viola exes Gianluca Mancini and Jordan Veretout are there, but Nicolò Zaniolo is only on the bench.

Lineups

Fiorentina (4-3-3): Terracciano; Venuti, Milenković , Igor, Biraghi; Bonaventura, Amrabat, Duncan; González, Cabral, Ikoné

AS Roma (3-5-1-1): Rui Patrício; Mancini, Smalling, Ibañez; Karsdorp, Veretout, Cristante, Oliveira, Zalewski; Pellegrini; Abraham
