Montella: 'No Viola regrets'

Fiorentina can only reach the Champions League if Milan fail to beat Siena, but Vincenzo Montella warns “nobody must ask about that result.”

The Viola are two points behind the Rossoneri and must beat Pescara, then hope Siena cause an upset. If the teams end level, then Fiorentina have the superior head-to-head record.

“It will be an important game tomorrow, above all because we don’t want to have any regrets,” said the Coach.

“We need to play our game without getting distracted by what is happening in Siena. In fact, when we’re on the bench nobody must ask about that result. Of course I hope Siena will get a draw.

“It is a complicated match for Siena, but physically they are in good shape and will follow everything their Coach Beppe Iachini asks of them. I have no doubts over the effort Siena will put into this, as Iachini has all my respect as a man and as a Coach.

“Anything could happen tomorrow. Milan have had their hands on the finish line for a while, so perhaps they have more to lose than we do.

“Who deserves the Champions League? Whoever gets there. We cannot really make comparisons.”

Momo Sissoko and Marcelo Larrondo are out of action.

Fiorentina squad for Pescara: Aquilani, Borja Valero, Bernardeschi, Compper, Cuadrado, Fernandez, Hegazi, Jovetic, Ljajic, Llama Lupatelli, Migliaccio, Neto, Pasqual, Pizarro, Rodriguez, Romulo, Roncaglia, Rossi, Savic, Tomovic, Toni, Viviano, Wolski
