Napoli vs Fiorentina: Lineups and how to watch

Weirdly enough, it’s not the Viola throwing a curveball in the XI.

Late news

Napoli manager Walter Mazzarri has trotted out both his ex-Viola players in Pierluigi Gollini and Giovanni Simeone while opting for new signing Pasquale Mazzocchi in midfield. Fiorentina boss Vincenzo Italiano, in contrast, has opted for something resembling his first choice XI, at least of the available squad; that means Josip Brekalo starting, but at least Nico González is on the bench. Hopefully that’s good enough for the fans in Riyadh, since it clearly isn’t moving the needle for some reporters.


Napoli (4-3-3): Gollini, Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Juan Jesus, Mario Rui; Mazzocchi, Cajuste, Lobotka; Politano, Simeone, Kvaratshkelia

Fiorentina (4-2-3-1): Terracciano; Kayode, Milenković, Martínez Quarta, Biraghi; Arthur, Duncan; Ikoné, Bonaventura, Brekalo; Beltrán

How to watch

TV: Check whichever channel, if any carries Serie A or the Coppa Italia regularly; take a gander at the international television listings if you’re not sure.

Online: Here is your list of safe, reliable, and legal streams. Any requests for or links to illegal streams will get you Kofi Kingstoned.

Forza Viola!
