Alberto Gilardino takes on his former teammates as Fiorentina visit Bologna in a game that was snowed off on Sunday.
This Serie A Week 26 tie was meant to be played on Sunday afternoon, but had to be postponed due to heavy snowfall on the Stadio Dall’Ara.
The Viola are flying high after their 4-1 demolition of Inter, but have to do without the suspended David Pizarro.
In the Chilean’s absence, Giulio Migliaccio is picked rather than Momo Sissoko in midfield with Borja Valero and Alberto Aquilani.
Facundo Roncaglia, Mati Fernandez, Michele Camporese and Giuseppe Rossi are out injured.
Adem Ljajic completes the trident attack with Stevan Jovetic and Juan Cuadrado, while goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano faces his former teammates.
It’s a special game for Bologna hitman Gilardino, who spent many years at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

Alessandro Diamanti, Panagiotis Kone and Manolo Gabbiadini line up behind Gilardino.
