Probable line-ups: Fiorentina vs Atalanta

Fiorentina are expected to make several changes ahead of their clash against Atalanta.

Beppe Iachini gave Brazilian defender Igor his first start against Juventus last weekend, and it’s thought that the will start once more as Martin Caceres is having personal problems.

Igor should play as the left-sided central defender in Iachini’s three-man back line, alongside German Pezzella and Nikola Milenkovic.

Across the midfield, Gaetano Castrovilli is expected to return to the centre, and Rachid Ghezzal should make way for the Italian. Erick Pulgar and Marco Benassi will play in the central midfield positions.

Pol Lirola and Dalbert will play as the wing-backs.

In attack, Federico Chiesa and Patrick Cutrone are expected to lead the line.

Atalanta meanwhile are also expected to make changes.

In defence, Berat Djimsiti is slated to return at the expense of Mattia Caldara, and will play alongside Rafael Toloi and Jose Palomino.

Marten de Roon is suspended for the game, so expect Mario Pasalic to play alongside Remo Freuler

Timothy Castagne should start at right wing-back ahead of Hans Hateboer, with Robin Gosens on the other side.

Papu Gomez should play as a No 10, in behind Josip Ilicic, who has recovered from his back problem, and Duvan Zapata.

Probable line-ups:

Fiorentina (3-5-2): Dragowski; Milenkovic, Pezzella; Igor; Lirola, Benassi; Pulgar; Castrovilli; Dalbert; Cutrone, Chiesa

Atalanta (3-4-1-2): Gollini; Toloi, Palomino, Djimsiti; Castagne, Pasalic, Freuler, Gosens; Gomez; Ilicic, Zapata
