Line-ups: Genoa-Fiorentina

Fiorentina have Adem Ljajic alongside Stevan Jovetic against a completely revamped Genoa in tonight’s Serie A Week 10 match.

The midweek round concludes this evening at Marassi with a 19.45 GMT kick-off.

Gigi Del Neri lost his debut on the Genoa bench after replacing Gigi De Canio, but hopes to do better in his first home game. Of course he is a familiar face in this stadium after his time at the helm of rivals Sampdoria.

He has to do without the injured Marco Borriello, Marco Rossi, Damiano Ferronetti and ex-Fiorentina star Juan Manuel Vargas.

Under-21 international hitman Ciro Immobile is joined by Andrea Bertolacci in a trequartista role, but the real surprise is Linus Hallenius given his Serie A start.

The 23-year-old Swede spent last season on loan at Padova and is nicknamed ‘The New Zlatan Ibrahimovic.’

Fiorentina are on fine form, although they are still looking for their first away win of the season.

David Pizarro and Facundo Roncaglia return from suspension, as only Michele Camporese is on the treatment table.

Stevan Savic is chosen instead of Nenad Tomovic with Ljajic partnering Jovetic. Alberto Aquilani is only fit for the bench.

Genoa: Frey; Sampirisi, Bovo, Granqvist, Moretti; Merkel, Kucka, Antonelli; Bertolacci; Immobile, Hallenius

Genoa bench: Tzorvas, Donnarumma, Melazzi, Seymour, Piscitella, Jorquera, Canini, Said, Tozser, Anselmo

Fiorentina:Viviano; Roncaglia, Gonzalo, Savic; Cuadrado, Fernandez, Pizarro, Borja Valero, Pasqual; Ljajic, Jovetic

Fiorentina bench: Neto, Hegazi, Tomovic, Cassani, Romulo, Olivera, Migliaccio, Aquilani, Llama, Toni, Seferovic, El Hamdaoui
