Third-place Fiorentina hope to continue their ascent with a sixth consecutive victory away to Torino, but reshuffle in midfield and attack.
The Viola have been a revelation this season and currently sit in joint third position alongside Napoli.
As Inter and Napoli do not play until Monday, Vincenzo Montella’s men could go into second this weekend.
David Pizarro sits out a ban with Stevan Jovetic and Michele Camporese still injured, so Ruben Olivera has been chosen to deputise for the Chilean.
Mati Fernandez surprisingly partners Luca Toni in Jovetic’s absence, sending Adem Ljajic to the bench.
Toro are still smarting from their defeat to Roma on Monday night and have to do without Marko Bakic, Sergio Suciu and Giuseppe Vives.
It is a special game for Alessio Cerci, who is on loan with the Granata from Fiorentina.
Torino: Gillet, Darmian, Glik, Ogbonna, D'Ambrosio; Basha, Gazzi; Cerci, Bianchi, Santana, Meggiorini
Torino bench: Gomis, Rodriguez, Sgrigna, Masiello, Stevanovic, Sansone, Agostini, Brighi, Verdi, Birsa, Diop
Fiorentina: Viviano; Rodriguez, Roncaglia, Savic; Pasqual, Olivera, Aquilani, Borja Valero, Cuadrado; Fernandez, Toni
Fiorentina bench: Neto, Lupatelli, Hegazi, El Hamdaoui, Cassani, Seferovic, Della Rocca, Llama, Migliaccio, Ljajic, Tomovic, Romulo
