Line-ups: Palermo-Fiorentina

Fabrizio Miccoli and Luca Toni face their former clubs as Palermo-Fiorentina promises a real spectacle.

The Viola got back on track last week by ending a run of two points from three rounds, crushing local rivals Siena 4-1. They also won away to Udinese in order to reach the Coppa Italia Quarter-Finals. Palermo, meanwhile, scraped one point from their last three.

Andrea Mantovani and Abel Hernandez are long-term absentees for Gian Piero Gasperini’s side, but Franco Brienza is chosen as support for Miccoli.

Fiorentina have Facundo Roncaglia and Ruben Olivera suspended, but Palermo-owned goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano is again dropped due to poor form.

David Pizarro is on the bench so ex-Rosanero midfielder Giulio Migliaccio can start.

Palermo: Ujkani; Munoz, Donati, Garcia; Giorgi, Morganella, Barreto, Arevalo Rios, Pisano; Brienza, Miccoli

Palermo bench: Benussi, Cetto, Viola, DybalaZahavi, Brichetto, Malele, Kurtic, Sanseverino, Goldaniga

Fiorentina bench: Viviano, Pizarro, El Hamdaoui, Lupatelli, Mati Fernandez, Cassani, Seferovic, Della Rocca, Llama, Ljajic, Madrigali, Romulo
