Fiorentina can start packing for the Europa Conference League knockout stages with a win over Genk this evening.

The match between the Viola and the Belgian outfit kicks off at 20.00 UK time at the Stadio Artemio Franchi in Florence.

Fiorentina currently sit top of Group F after four games, picking up eight points after two wins and two draws. They hold a two-point lead over Ferencvaros and Genk, so victory over the Blauw-Wit would guarantee them a spot in the Round of 16.

The Viola are without Giacomo Bonaventura and Rolando Mandragora, both of whom are sidelined with injuries. Vincenzo Italiano’s side will be expecting a deep run in the Conference League this term after their second-place finish last season.

Genk fell to Standard Liege in a difficult 1-0 loss on the weekend, leaving them sixth in the Belgian Pro League. Their first meeting with Fiorentina ended in a 2-2 draw at the Cegeka Arena on September 21.
