Fiorentina mister Vincenzo Italiano hands a rare start to Aleksa Terzić, but the bigger news is the absence of Sofyan Amrabat due to a back injury, prompting the manager to tilt his midfield to a very attacking three with Antonín Barák and Gaetano Castrovilli ahead of Rolando Mandragora. Keep an eye on Nicolás González, who went off injured against Lech Poznań on Thursday and may not have a full 90 in him.
Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini loses Ademola Lookman to a late injury but gets Teun Koopmeiners back in the number 10 spot. Duván Zapata joins Rasmus Højlund up front, with the defense and midfield looking exactly how we predicted.
Fiorentina (4-3-3): Terracciano; Dodô, Milenković, Martínez Quarta, Terzić; Castrovilli, Mandragora, Barák; González, Cabral, Ikoné
Atalanta (3-4-1-2): Musso; Tolói, Scalvini, Djimsiti; Mæhle, de Roon, Ederson, Zappacosta; Koopmeiners; Højlund, Zapata
