Fiorentina manager Vincenzo Italiano has apparently tilted his midfield back to a 4-3-3, leaving Sofyan Amrabat as the regista with Antonín Barák and Giacomo Bonaventura as the mezzale. Riccardo Saponara gets the nod on the left wing with Nicolás González on the right. Bologna boss leaves out Musa Barrow in favor of Joshua Zirkzee up front, but otherwise fields the his expected XI.
Keep an eye on the Stadio Artemio Franchi for some fiery displays from the fans, as the Derby dell’Appennino can get a little spicy, although these supporter groups don’t despise each other in particular. It’s nothing personal. Just business.
Fiorentina (4-3-3): Terracciano; Biraghi, Igor, Milenković, Dodô; Bonaventura, Amrabat, Barák; Saponara, Jović, González
Bologna (4-2-3-1): Skorupski; Cambiaso, Lucumí, Sosa, Posch; Schouten, Domínguez; Soriano, Ferguson, Orsolini; Zirkzee
