Vincenzo Montella is undecided as of yet who will be the striker for Fiorentina on Sunday, with Mario Gomez still not feeling fresh after recovering from his knee injury.
The German striker has only started the meaningless second leg of the Europa League tie with Esbjerg, so Montella may keep him for the bench in such a massive encounter, saving him for the Europa clash with the Serie A champions.
Alessandro Matri would therefore start up front, probably without an out-and-out forward to partner him, so it will be imperative that he constantly moves and works the channels to provide an outlet and create space for himself amid the multitude of midfielders that Fiorentina possess.
Giorgio Chiellini, Andrea Barzagli and Leonardo Bonucci will need to be on guard, and although Matri does not possess explosive pace, his subtle movement and underrated ability in the air mean that he is a force to be reckoned with.
Whether Conte decides to allocate one of the centre-backs to man-mark Matri will be interesting; and now that the former Juve striker has had a few weeks to settle into the Montella system, he will be anticipating the balls that the wonderfully creative players are capable of laying on a plate for him.
