Probable line-ups: Brescia-Fiorentina

Mario Balotelli remains a doubt for Brescia against a Fiorentina side who could line up with the same XI for the sixth straight Serie A game.

Balotelli is struggling with a minor knee problem, although he did train with the Brescia squad on Sunday.

Therefore, Alfredo Donnarumma could be partnered up top by Alessandro Matri or Florian Aye this evening.

However, the Rondinelle are boosted by the form of Sandro Tonali in midfield, the teenager having recently made his senior Italy debut.

As for Fiorentina, continuity seems to be key for Vincenzo Montella, who has turned around both his and the Viola’s fortunes with a three-match winning run.

Franck Ribery has scored in each of his last two appearances and is again set to be partnered by Federico Chiesa in a two-pronged attack.

Gaetano Castrovilli is another to keep an eye on, the emerging midfield talent having just signed a new contract.

Kick-off has been put back to 20:00 BST due to the Viola’s team bus being stuck in traffic.

Brescia (probable): Joronen; Sabelli, Cistana, Chancellor, Martella; Bisoli, Tonali, Dessena; Romulo; Donnarumma, Balotelli

Fiorentina (probable): Dragowski; Milenkovic, Pezzella, Caceres; Lirola, Pulgar, Badelj, Castrovilli, Dalbert; Chiesa, Ribery

Referee: Calvarese
