Line-ups: Cagliari-Fiorentina

Fiorentina are without the suspended Jordan Veretout for tonight’s Serie A trip to Cagliari, spearheaded by Italy call-up Leonardo Pavoletti.

Fiiorentina switch to a 4-3-3 this evening as Christian Norgaard comes in for Veretout, the Dane joined in midfield by Marco Benassi and Gerson.

Elsewhere Everton loanee Kevin Mirallas starts on the left wing, replacing the injured Edimilson Fernandes.

Finally Pietro Terracciano stays in goal ahead of Alban Lafont, who is not risked despite his inclusion in the squad.

As for Cagliari, they have Luca Cigarini back from a ban and go with Fabrizio Cacciatore over Darijo Srna at right-back.

Nicolo Barella plays in an advanced position just behind Joao Pedro and Pavoletti, who will be looking to crown his Italy call-up with a goal.

The Sardinians have won back-to-back home games, while the Viola have drawn three of their last four, winning just once in the League since January.

The sides meet just a day after it was announced they would create a five-a-side football pitch in Bethlehem for all children to come together in the name of Davide Astori, who spent most of his career at Cagliari and Fiorentina.
