Jo Jo a no no for Juve

Stevan Jovetic has lost out on the race to be fit for Saturday’s encounter with Juventus, but Fiorentina are able to call up Valon Behrami.

The Viola, sat in 15th in the table and seven points off the relegation zone, will go into Saturday’s clash without Montenegrin attacker Jovetic. The 22-year-old was a doubt all week to make the tie, in light of a muscle strain picked up almost two weeks ago at home to Cesena.

Swiss midfielder Behrami, who claimed this week that Juventus tried to sign him in January, is included in the squad, after shaking off similar concerns over his fitness.

Fiorentina squad to face Juventus: Acosty, Amauri, Behrami, Boruc, Cassani, Cerci, De Silvestri, Gamberini, Kharja, Lazzari, Marchionni, Montolivo, Nastasic, Natali, Neto, Olivera, Pasqual, Romulo, Salifu, Vargas.
