Late news

Vincenzo Italiano opts to rotate, as he often does. The strangest decision is Marco Benassi at rightback, repeating an experiment we all grew to know and dread last year. Lucas Martínez Quarta, Youssef Maleh, and Riccardo Sottil in particular have everything to prove here. The only notable absence is Dodô, who’s not even on the bench.

Galatasaray boss Okan Buruk, on the other hand, rolls with what looks like his top XI. It’s chock full of familiar faces: RB Léo Dubois was linked to Fiorentina before Dodô was signed, Sérgio Oliveira was the reason Gennaro Gattuso resigned as manager last summer, and Haris Seferović used to wear the Viola shirt.


Fiorentina (4-3-3): Terracciano; Benassi, Martínez Quarta, Igor, Biraghi; Bonaventura, Amrabat, Maleh; Sottil, Cabral, González

Galatasaray (4-2-3-1): Muslera; Dubois, Nellson, Bardakcı, Van Aanholt; Oliveira, Kutlu; Akgum, Akbaba, Aktürkoğlu; Seferovic

How to watch

TV: DAZN in Italy but probably not anywhere else.

Online: Streaming on DAZN but not anywhere else I can find, which is uh not super helpful. Good luck out there.

Forza Viola!
