Mario Gomez is in line to finally make a start for Fiorentina in their Europa League tie with Danish side Esbjerg tonight, Corriere dello Sport reports.
The German forward was ruled out for five months earlier in the season but in the last few weeks has gradually been reintroduced to first team action.
Now, with a handful of substitute appearances under his belt, Coach Vincenzo Montella looks set to hand the 28-year-old a long awaited return to the Viola starting 11.
Juan Cuadrado and Joaquin are expected to start either side of Gomez in Montella’s usual 4-3-3 formation.
