Fiorentina will continue their exciting European adventure as they take on Sivasspor in the round of 16 of the Europa Conference League, having impressively made it past Portuguese side SC Braga in the previous round.
La Viola have taken solace in the cup competitions this season as they are into the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia where they will face Cremonese and they will back themselves to knock out Sivasspor who are currently 12th in the Turkish Super Lig.
The first leg takes place at the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Thursday night and fans will hope the improved performances compared to Serie A games continue.
Fiorentina vs Sivasspor: Predicted line-ups
There are no suspension worries for Vincenzo Italiano ahead of this match which makes his job much easier. The main fitness doubt is Aleksa Terzic who was out of the win over AC Milan in Serie A at the weekend with a muscle injury.
It seems likely that Pietro Terracciano will be in goal against Sivasspor even though Salvatore Sirigu was given a start in the second leg against Braga when Fiorentina were already 4-0 up.
The major issue for Sivasspor is that their joint-top scorer in the Europa Conference League, Mustapha Yatabare could be out as he is recovering from an injury he suffered in January. Caner Osmanpasa and Robin Yalcin are struggling to make it back to fitness as well.
Fiorentina predicted XI vs Sivasspor (4-3-3): Terracciano; Dodo, Milenkovic, Igor, Biraghi; Mandragora, Amrabat, Bonaventura; Ikone, Jovic, Gonzalez.
Sivasspor predicted XI vs Fiorentina (4-1-4-1): Vural; Yesilyurt, Goutas, Appindangoye, Ciftci; Cofie; Saiz, Arslan, Charisis, Gradel; Caicedo.
