Fiorentina possible starting lineup:Terracciano; Dodo, Milenkovic, Igor, Biraghi; Amrabat, Mandragora; Ikone, Barak, Saponara; Cabral Monza possible starting lineup:Di Gregorio; Marlon, Caldirola, Mari; Ciurria, Pessina, Rovella, Augusto; Colpani, Caprari; Mota We say: Fiorentina 2-1 Monza Despite missing arguably their most talented forward in the shape of Gonzalez, we expect Fiorentina to edge an entertaining encounter on Wednesday.
Sofyan Amrabat is expected to be fit enough to start in midfield after starring for Morocco at the World Cup in Qatar. Monza, meanwhile, could welcome Pablo Mari back to their matchday squad after the former Arsenal defender recovered from surgery on his back following a horrific knife attack on him while shopping at a mall in October. However, Stefano Sensi is unlikely to make the trip to Florence due to an ankle injury, meaning that Nicolo Rovella and Matteo Pessina should continue at the base of the visitors' midfield.
The club's board, which is led by owner Silvio Berlusconi, made an early decision to replace Giovanni Stroppa with Raffaele Palladino in their managerial dugout in September, and have been rewarded by the 38-year-old helping move them nine points clear of the relegation zone. Indeed, two home wins against Hellas Verona and Salernitana in their last three matches prior to the break suggests that they have more than enough about them to beat the teams expected to be in and around their league position come the end of the season. As such, Palladino will be hoping that his side can punch above their weight against some of the bigger clubs in the division, having famously tasted victory against Juventus in his first game in charge. Fiorentina Serie A form: Fiorentina form (all competitions): Monza Serie A form: Monza form (all competitions): Team News Fiorentina are likely to be without key attackers Nicolas Gonzalez and Riccardo Sottil due to hamstring and back injuries respectively.
As such, Italiano will be keen to bounce back with a victory and start 2023 on a positive note when they take on Monza in midweek. However, Monza are extremely unlikely to be pushovers on Wednesday, having significantly improved their form themselves as their debut campaign in Serie A has progressed.
