Cremonese manager Davide Ballardini has pulled a couple of surprises: backup goalkeeper Fallou Sarr and supersub striker Daniele Ciofani are both in the XI. It’s unclear who’ll play at right wingback, as none of the starters usually work there; smart money’s on Viola loanee Marco Benassi, but it could be Charles Pickel.
Fiorentina mister Vincenzo Italiano loses Nikola Milenković to an illness, so Lucas Martínez Quarta and Igor reprise their roles in the heart of defense. The rest of the lineup is as expected.
Cremonese (3-5-2): Sarr; Aiwu, Bianchetti, Vásquez; Benassi, Pickel, Meïté, Castagnetti, Valeri; Tsadjout, Ciofani
Fiorentina (4-2-3-1): Terracciano; Dodô, Martínez Quarta, Igor, Biraghi; Amrabat, Mandragora; González, Barák, Ikoné; Cabral
