Line-ups: Fiorentina-Palermo

Fiorentina hope to build on their shock San Siro triumph when taking on Palermo, but Fabrizio Miccoli is on the bench.

Delio Rossi had something of a love-hate relationship with President Maurizio Zamparini during his time in Sicily, while Amauri also welcomes his former teammates.

The Brazilian-Italian finally broke his duck in a surprise win over Milan on Saturday and returns to the starting XI alongside Stevan Jovetic.

Juan Manuel Vargas, Michele Camporese, Per Kroldrup and Ruben Olivera are all unavailable for the Viola.

Palermo welcome back Abel Hernandez, Massimo Donati, Andrea Mantovani and Nicolas Bertolo from suspension.

Matias Aguirregaray, Federico Balzaretti, Giulio Migliaccio and Matias Silvestre are sidelined, though.

Surprisingly, ex-Fiorentina star Miccoli is on the bench in favour of Josip Ilicic and Hernandez, while both teams adopt a three-man defence.

Fiorentina: 1 Boruc; 5 Gamberini, 14 Natali, 15 Nastasic; 29 De Silvestri, 85 Behrami, 18 Montolivo, 23 Pasqual; 13 Kharja; 11 Amauri, 8 Jovetic

Fiorentina bench: 89 Neto, 16 Cassani, 19 Felipe, 21 Lazzari, 17 Salifu, 7 Cerci, 22 Ljajic

Palermo: 1 Viviano; 6 Munoz, 2 Mantovani, 18 Labrin; 31 Pisano, 7 Della Rocca, 23 Donati, 5 Barreto, 14 Bertolo; 27 Ilicic, 11 Hernandez

Palermo bench: 33 Tzorvas, 62 Kosnic, 21 Bacinovic, 17 Vazquez, 16 Zahavi, 19 Budan, 10 Miccoli
