Likely lineups

The round of 16 of the Coppa Italia continues. On the evening of Thursday, Jan. 12, after seeing Inter and Torino pass the round at the expense of Parma and Milan, Fiorentina and Sampdoria will face each other at the Artemio Franchi in Florence, who in case of qualification will face off against the Granata team that eliminated Pioli’s Rossoneri.

Few doubts for Vincenzo Italiano, who should not rely on turnover but almost totally on the players who beat Sassuolo in the last round of Serie A. Cabral, out for about 40 days due to a hamstring injury, will be absent, in his place Luka Jovic. Nico Gonzalez, match-winner against the neroverdi, should also start from the first minute.

A few changes instead for Dejan Stankovic compared to the lineup fielded in the 17th round of the championship against Napoli: Harry Winks, former Tottenham player who has not yet made his debut in the Blucerchiata jersey, is set to start, as well as the very young striker Daniele Montevago.

Probable formations

FIORENTINA (4-3-3): Gollini; Venuti, Milenkovic, Igor, Biraghi; Bianco, Duncan, Bonaventura; Gonzalez, Jovic, Kouamé. Coach: Vincenzo Italiano

SAMPDORIA (3-4-1-2): Audero; Murillo, Nuytinck, Murru; Leris, Winks, Vieira, Augello; Verre; Montevago, Lammers. Coach: Dejan Sankovic
