Line-ups: Fiorentina - Milan

Delio Rossi reshuffles the Fiorentina pack on his debut by welcoming a Milan side on sparkling form.

The Coach was drafted in to replace Sinisa Mihajlovic during the break for international duty and has already made a huge difference in the enthusiasm levels of the fans.

He had been planning to rotate the squad around Stevan Jovetic, but the Montenegro talent has not recovered from a thigh problem.

Instead, he has Andrea Lazzari and Alessio Cerci supporting lone centre-forward Alberto Gilardino.

Mattia Cassani, Per Kroldrup and the suspended Cesare Natali are also absent for this match, so there are big changes in defence.

Milan’s injury list remains impressive with Antonio Cassano, Gennaro Gattuso, Mathieu Flamini, Marco Amelia, Philippe Mexes and Stephan El Shaarawy.

Kevin-Prince Boateng sits out the last round of his ban for insulting the fourth official, so Clarence Seedorf is the trequartista behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Robinho.
