Line-ups: Fiorentina-Sampdoria

Fiorentina and Sampdoria both shuffle their packs for this evening's Coppa Italia last-16 clash at the Artemio Franchi.

Fiorentina make five changes from the side that drew 0-0 with Napoli last weekend as Bartlomiej Dragowski, Bruno Gaspar, Carlos Sanchez, Riccardo Saponara and Khouma Babacar all come in.

Samp, on the other hand, opt for two more, with septet Cristian Puggioni, Vasco Regini, Jacopo Sala, Ivan Strinic, Leonardo Capezzi, Ricky Alvarez and Gianluca Caprari the new faces from Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Cagliari.
