The Bianconeri have to deal with the absences of Benedikt Howedes, Blaise Matuidi, Paulo Dybala and Juan Cuadrado, but coach Massimiliano Allegri has said that is no excuse should they drop points.
Claudio Marchisio is in the starting line-up again instead of the former Paris Saint-Germain midfielder, with Allegri moving to his preferred 4-3-3 system, and confirming Federico Bernardeschi up front against his former club.
Stefano Pioli responds with the same system. Gil Dias is once again preferred to Cyril Thereau up front, alongside Giovanni Simeone and Federico Chiesa.
Fiorentina: Sportiello; Pezzella, Milenkovic, Astori, Biraghi; Benassi, Badelj, Veretout; Chiesa, Simeone, Gil Dias.
