Davide Nicola will start former Viola player Aleandro Rosi at rightback and leave winger Maxwell Acosty on the bench. Leonardo Capezzi (hamstring) is only fit enough for the bench. Pace merchant Max Tonev gets the nod on the wing over striker Marcelo Trotta. It’s unclear if this is a 4-4-2 or a 4-3-3, as the personnel could allow for either.
Paulo Sousa has Riccardo Saponara to the bench. Josip Ilicic will start in the absence of Federico Bernardeschi (calf) while Cristian Tello will continue on the left wing. Otherwise, it’s what we expected.
Crotone (4-3-3): Cordaz; Rosi, Ferrari, Ceccherini, Mesbah; Rohden, Crisetig, Barberis; Tonev, Falcinelli, Stoian
Fiorentina (3-4-2-1): Tatarusanu; Sanchez, Gonzalo, Astori; Chiesa, Vecino, Badelj, Tello; Valero, Ilicic; Kalinic
