Team News

  • Cuadrado is suspended, so Jovetic could play on the right wing with Toni as the main striker.
  • Pizarro will be back available and he is set to take to the middle of the park, between Borja Valero and Aquilani.
  • After a few weeks of experimenting, Montella is expected to keep the four-man defence that played against Bologna.
  • Hetemaj is out through suspension, so the trio that started in midfield against Samp is set to play.
  • Paloschi and Samassa are battling for a starting spot up front, but the latter should make room for the former Milan player this time.
  • Sardo is still injured, so Frey will patrol the right flank.

Prediction

  • Fiorentina are struggling away from the Franchi, so coach Montella knows that he has to keep the points coming in home matches. The other 6 teams in the top 7 face each other in three matches this week, so this could be a good chance for the Viola to gain points on some of them.
  • Chievo are without a victory for four consecutive matches, in which they only collected one point. Travelling to Florence is not the best tonic for their troubles, so Corini's team will have a hard task in this game.
  • This match could have slow tempo, as Fiorentina try to control the match and create chances at their own pace, while Chievo will probably defend tight and try to break Fiorentina's attacks down. Fiorentina's system failed a few weeks ago and Montella is still working to fix it. Beating Chievo will take patience and clinical finishing.
