Caceres, Cuadrado set for starts

Juan Cuadrado is speculated as set to start alongside Mario Gomez for Fiorentina, against a Juventus back-line likely to list Martin Caceres.

The Bianconeri are enduring a minor injury crisis heading into tonight’s Europa League Last 16 second leg against La Viola, missing defenders Andrea Barzagli and Angelo Ogbonna, as well as Federico Peluso and Sebastian Giovinco.

It is seen therefore that Caceres will keep his place from the weekend win at Genoa in the back three alongside Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci.

Mauricio Isla is speculated as set to start on the right ahead of Stephan Lichtsteiner, whilst the rest of the line-up will be Antonio Conte’s strongest possible selection.

Hosts Fiorentina are seen as set to use Mario Gomez from the start, on from his goalscoring cameo from the bench in last week’s first leg.

It is seen that Juan Cuadrado, who didn’t make it off the bench last week will be rewarded for his weekend performance against Chievo with a start alongside the German.

Probable line-ups

Fiorentina: Neto; Tomovic, Gonzalo Rodriguez, Savic, Vargas; Aquilani, Pizarro, Borja Valero; Cuadrado, Gomez, Ilicic

Juventus: Buffon; Caceres, Bonucci, Chiellini; Isla, Vidal, Pirlo, Pogba, Asamoah; Llorente, Tevez
