Fiorentina vs Sampdoria: Lineups and how to watch

The Viola trot out a rather unexpected XI, including a long-awaited debut for a former academy player.

Late news

Fiorentina boss Vincenzo Italiano has gone deep into his reserves. The most notable is a Fiorentina debut for former academy goalkeeper Michele Cerofolini, but Luca Ranieri, Alfred Duncan, and Luka Jović are out there too. Sampdoria mister Dejan Stanković hasn’t rotated much, which isn’t too surprising; the Blucerchiati aren’t playing twice a week like the Viola and are thus much fresher in the legs.


Fiorentina (4-2-3-1): Cerofolini; Dodô, Milenković, Ranieri, Biraghi; Amrabat, Duncan; González, Castrovilli, Sottil; Jović

Sampdoria (3-4-1-2): Ravaglia; Amione, Oikonomou, Günter; Augello, Rincón, Winks, Zanoli; Léris; Gabbiadini, Lammers
