Fiorentina boss Beppe Iachini was forced to replace Franck Ribery and Erick Pulgar in the lineup with Christian Kouame and Sofyan Amrabat respectively. For Kouame especially this match is a chance to impress, given that he was out of favor with Prandelli. Cristiano Biraghi also returns, replacing Lorenzo Venuti at left wing-back, his first start since Parma.
Gian Piero Gasperini interestingly has benched Joakim Maehle in favor of Mario Pasalic. Whether that means a four-back formation or someone out of position at right back remains to be seen.
Fiorentina (3-5-2): Drągowski; Martínez Quarta, Milenković, Pezzella, Cáceres; Bonaventura, Amrabat, Castrovilli; Biraghi, Vlahović, Kouame
Atalanta (3-4-1-2): Gollini; Toloi, Romero, Palomino; Pašalić, De Roon, Frueler; Gosens, Malinovski, Muriel; Zapata
