Line-ups: Amauri starts for Fiorentina

New signing Amauri is in the starting XI as Fiorentina welcome Siena for the Tuscan derby today.

The striker has not played for over six months and arrived on loan from Juventus this week.

Coach Delio Rossi has thrown Amauri straight into the line-up alongside Stevan Jovetic, leaving Juan Manuel Vargas and Adem Ljajic on the bench.

Gianni Munari is suspended and Alessio Cerci dropped ahead of his likely transfer.

Siena have the front pairing of Mattia Destro and Emanuele Calaiò for today’s 11.30am UK time kick-off.

The stands of the Stadio Artemio Franchi are practically empty, though, as Fiorentina fans stage a protest against recent poor results.

Fiorentina: Boruc;Gamberini, Natali, Nastasic; Cassani, Behrami, Montolivo, Lazzari, Pasqual; Jovetic, Amauri

Fiorentina bench: Neto, Vargas, Ljajic, De Silvestri, Camporese, Acosty, Romulo

Siena bench: Farelli, De Almeida, Larrondo, Rossi, Brienza, Contini, Bolzoni
