Line-ups: Brescia-Fiorentina

Mario Balotelli is benched against a Fiorentina side who line up with the same XI for the sixth straight game.

Balotelli is in Brescia’s matchday squad against Fiorentina, but no chances are taken over his knee after it gave him trouble.

Taking his place alongside Alfredo Donnarumma up top is Florian Aye, who has yet to score in six appearances for the new boys.

However, Sandro Tonali – on a high from his Italy debut – starts as usual in central midfield, hoping to showcase more of his burgeoning potential.

The Rondinelle take on a Fiorentina team looking completely rejuvenated after three straight wins.

With that in mind, Vincenzo Montella sees no reason to make changes so Franck Ribery continues alongside Federico Chiesa in attack.

Midfield talent Gaetano Castrovilli has also caught the eye in recent weeks and signed a new contract earlier in October.

Kick-off has been moved back to 20:00 BST after the Viola’s team bus was held up by traffic.

Brescia: Joronen; Sabelli, Cistana, Chancellor, Mateju; Bisoli, Tonali, Dessena; Romulo; Donnarumma, Aye

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

Referee: Calvarese
