Amrabat returns for Fiorentina with protective mask

Sofyan Amrabat is in the Fiorentina squad to face Bologna after returning to training with a protective mask for a broken nose.

It kicks off on Sunday at 17.00 GMT at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

The Viola go into this game without long-term injury absentees Riccardo Sottil and Gaetano Castrovilli.

There are still concerns over Amrabat after he fractured his nose when making a brave block during the midweek Coppa Italia quarter-final against Torino.

He returned to training this morning with a specially-made protective mask, but it remains to be seen whether he feels ready for a place in the starting XI or not.

The good news for coach Vincenzo Italiano is the return to the side of Lucas Martinez Quarta and January signing Josip Brekalo.

Fiorentina squad for Bologna: Amrabat, Barak, Bianco, Biraghi, Bonaventura, Brekalo, Cerofolini, Dodo, Igor, Duncan, Gonzalez, Ikone, Jovic, Kouame, Mandragora, Martinez Quarta, Cabral, Milenkovic, Ranieri, Saponara, Sirigu, Terracciano, Terzic, Venuti
