Coppa line-ups: Fiorentina-Atalanta


Patrick Cutrone and Mattia Caldara are given their first starts for Fiorentina and Atalanta in today’s Coppa Italia Round of 16 tie.

It kicks off at 14.00 GMT and the winners go on to face Inter in the Quarter-Finals.

Coach Beppe Iachini launches Cutrone from the start alongside Dusan Vlahovic, just days after the former Milan striker completed his move from Wolves.

Cutrone has already made his debut in a Viola jersey, as a substitute during their 1-0 Serie A victory over SPAL.

Federico Chiesa is rested, with Franck Ribery still a long way off recovery from ankle surgery.

Atalanta also throw their new signing in at the deep end, as Caldara only completed his transfer from Milan last week.

The defender makes his return for the club, having come through the Bergamo side’s academy before his ill-fated move to San Siro.

Ruslan Malinovskyi and Mario Pasalic support lone striker Luis Muriel.

Fiorentina:Terracciano; Ceccherini, Pezzella, Milenkovic; Dalbert, Pulgar, Benassi, Castrovilli, Lirola; Cutrone, Vlahovic

Atalanta:Gollini; Djimsiti, Caldara, Masiello; Hateboer, De Roon, Freuler, Gosens; Malinovskyi, Pasalic; Muriel
