Line-ups: Fiorentina-Pescara

Fiorentina could secure third place today as they welcome troubled Pescara with new signing Giuseppe Rossi cheering them on.

The Viola are flying high and can take advantage of Inter’s slip-up in Udine to take third place on their own.

Home fans celebrate the arrival of Rossi from Villarreal in the stands, though he won’t be fit until mid-March.

Ruben Olivera and Gonzalo Rodriguez sit out bans, joining the injured Michele Camporese.

Stevan Jovetic is partnered by Luca Toni in attack, while Neto is again chosen ahead of Emiliano Viviano in goal.

Pescara are without Uros Cosic, Manuele Blasi and Juan Fernando Quintero, struggling to keep afloat in Serie A.

Vladimir Weiss and Jonathas support centre-forward Mervan Celik.

Fiorentina: Neto; Roncaglia, Tomovic, Savic; Cuadrado, Pizarro, Aquilani, Borja Valero, Pasqual; Jovetic, Toni

Fiorentina bench: Viviano, Lupatelli, Fernandez, Cassani, Seferovic, Della Rocca, Llama, Migliaccio, Ljajic, Madrigali, Romulo
Pescara: Perin; Capuano, Terlizzi, Modesto, Balzano; Nielsen, Togni, Bjarnason; Weiss, Jonathas; Celik

Pescara bench: Pelizzoli, Falso, Cascione, Romagnoli, Abbruscato, Bocchetti, Colucci, Vukusic, Caprari
