Europa League: Roma-Fiorentina: Probable lineups!

The upcoming Europa League match between Roma and Fiorentina put Rudi Garcia face to face with Vincenzo Montella once again. The future of the Frenchman passes through this important clash.


In this moment of the season Roma-Fiorentina is more than a great challenge that will let the best team pass to the next round of the Europa League. This match is a knockout game that can also decide the future of the Frenchmann at Roma. As stated by Mauro Baldissoni, AS Roma’s General Manager, right after the stinging defeat against Sampdoria the Europa League is a Roma’s objective and the American management wants the maximum committment to honour this International competition.



Probably Rudi Garcia will not be able to start Manolas even if right at the last minute he called him up and for this reason Astori will have another important chance to demonstarte his value by playing close to Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa. Alessandro Florenzi should replace the disqualified Radja Nainggolan while the offensive line should be Ljajic-Totti-Gervinho.


On the other side, Vincenzo Montella recovered Babacar that will play close to Salah while Gomez has been recovered but will probably start from the bench.
