Fabrizio Miccoli and Luca Toni face their former clubs as Palermo-Fiorentina promises a real spectacle.
The Viola got back on track last week by ending a run of two points from three rounds, crushing local rivals Siena 4-1. They also won away to Udinese in order to reach the Coppa Italia Quarter-Finals. Palermo, meanwhile, scraped one point from their last three.
Andrea Mantovani and Abel Hernandez are long-term absentees for Gian Piero Gasperini’s side, but Franco Brienza is chosen as support for Miccoli.
Fiorentina have Facundo Roncaglia and Ruben Olivera suspended, but Palermo-owned goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano is again dropped due to poor form.
David Pizarro is on the bench so ex-Rosanero midfielder Giulio Migliaccio can start.
