Line-ups: Fiorentina-Genoa

Fiorentina welcome a weakened Genoa side and aim to continue their march on the Serie A top spots.

The Viola went into this weekend in fourth place after winning their head-to-head with Lazio and are looking for a third consecutive victory.

Alberto Aquilani is back in the side, though Marvin Compper, Mounir El Hamdaoui and Michele Camporese miss out.

Stevan Jovetic is partnered by Adem Ljajic and Juan Cuadrado in the trident attack.

Genoa’s fine form under Davide Ballardini has waned slightly with two straight defeats, but an injury crisis is taking its toll.

Marco Borriello and ex-Fiorentina goalkeeper Sebstien Frey were late additions to the absentee list, joining Francelino Matuzalem, Antonio Floro Flores and Ruben Olivera.

It gives Under-21 international Ciro Immobile a rare chance to start up front with support from ex-Viola man Juan Manuel Vargas and Andrea Bertolacci.

Alexandros Tzorvas takes over the gloves from Frey.

Fiorentina: Viviano; Tomovic, Rodriguez, Savic, Pasqual; Aquilani, Pizarro, Borja Valero; Cuadrado, Jovetic, Ljajic

Fiorentina bench: Neto, Roncaglia, Sissoko, Lupatelli, Matias Fernandez, Larrondo, Llama, Migliaccio, Wolski, Toni, Romulo
