Fiorentina boss Vincenzo Italiano has chopped and changed his lineup, as expected. Oliver Christensen and Fabiano Parisi debut in goal at leftback, respectively, while Lucas Beltrán draws his first start up front. Lucas Martínez Quarta, Alfred Duncan, and Riccardo Sottil all get their first starts of the season as well. Lecce manager Roberto D’Aversa, on the other hand, makes just one change, bringing in Antonino Gallo at leftback.
With temperatures currently hovering around around 38°C/100°F, it’s already sweaty enough for anyone. Factor in the humidity as Florence prepares to deal with what could be a pretty good thunderstorm and you have the conditions for a real slog; not, perhaps, what Rocco Commisso was hoping for in his first home match of the season.
Fiorentina (4-2-3-1): Christensen; Dodô, Milenković, Martínez Quarta, Parisi; Arthur, Duncan; González, Bonaventura, Sottil; Beltrán
Lecce (4-3-3): Falcone; Gendrey, Pongračić, Baschirotto, Gallo; Rafia, Ramadani, González; Almqvist, Strefezza, Banda
