Line-ups: Parma-Fiorentina

Fiorentina have a new strike force of Amauri and Andrea Lazzari against Parma’s Sebastian Giovinco and Stefano Okaka.

This game was originally snowed off last month and kicks off at the Tardini at 17.30 UK time.

Both sides have numerous absentees, as Parma must do without the suspended Alessandro Lucarelli and Gabriele Musacci, plus injured Sergio Floccari, Massimo Gobbi and Raffaele Palladino.

Ex-Roma and Fulham forward Okaka is therefore the choice to partner Giovinco in attack.

Fiorentina miss their star striker Stevan Jovetic for the next 10 days after he hurt his knee, while Ruben Olivera is suspended and Per Kroldrup injured.

Delio Rossi also opted to leave behind Adem Ljajic and Amidu Salifu for unnamed reasons, so Amauri forms a new partnership with Lazzari.

Parma: Mirante; Zaccardo, Ferrario, Paletta; Jonathan, Valdes, Mariga, Galloppa, Modesto; Giovinco, Okaka

Parma bench: Pavarini, Morrone, Biabiany, Brandao, Pereira, Santacroce, Valiani

Fiorentina: Boruc; Camporese, Natali, Nastasic; Cassani, Behrami, Montolivo, Vargas, Pasqual; Lazzari, Amauri

Fiorentina bench: Neto, Gamberini, Cerci, Kharja, Felipe, De Silvestri, Marchionni
