Date- Saturday, December 21 | Kick-Off- 1:15 AM (IST) | Venue- Stadio Artemio Franchi
Franck Ribery is the only player who’s on the sidelines due to an injury. Dusan Vlahovic bagged a vital equaliser last weekend against Inter Milan at injury time and could earn a start. The rest of the team could be similar to what it was a few days ago.
Gianluca Mancini has undergone suspension and should be back at the centre-half position for the visitors. Chris Smalling sustained a knock recently but could be on his way back into the team. Davide Zappacosta, Javier Pastore, Bryan Cristante and Davide Santon are ruled out due to injury. P. Fonseca should persist with the same eleven which featured in the 3-1 win over SPAL.
FIO (Expected Playing 11)- Dragowski; Caceres, Pezzella, Milenkovic; Dalbert, Castrovilli, Badelj, Pulgar, Lirola; Chiesa, Vlahovic
A.S Roma (Expected Playing 11)- Lopez; Florenzi, Mancini, Fazio, Kolarov; Diawara, Veretout; Zaniolo, Pellegrini, Perotti; Dzeko
Eric Pulgar has been one of the central figures in defensive midfield for Fiorentina. The 25-year-old has three goals and two assists with a pass accuracy of 86% from 1350 minutes played in Serie A.
Lorenzo Pellegrini has been sensational in Roma’s midfield this season. Pellegrini has six assists from 857 minutes in Serie A while also having a pass accuracy of 82%.
Gaetano Castrovilli has been one of the standouts for Fiorentina and has three goals while also securing two assists from 15 league appearances with a pass accuracy of 82%
Edin Dzeko will be the obvious threat going forward for A.S Roma. The veteran centre-forward has six goals and an assist from 1352 minutes in Serie A with a pass accuracy of 70%
Considering the recent form of both clubs, it’s a no brainer to suggest that A.S Roma would walk in as the favourites of the fixture.
