Udinese look to Antonio Di Natale and Diego Fabbrini as they fight for a Champions League spot in Catania.
The Friulani know going in they need only a point at the Stadio Massimino to be sure of securing third place.
Emmanuel Badu is not 100 per cent fit, but Mauricio Isla, Paulo Vitor Barreto and Damiano Ferronetti are unavailable.
Under-21 international Fabbrini is chosen to partner top scorer Di Natale.
Catania are safely mid-table and have already set a new club record for Serie A points, but there is the sensation Vincenzo Montella will be leaving for Roma this summer.
Francesco Lodi is suspended, joining the injured Davide Lanzafame, Gonzalo Bergessio, Marco Biagianti, Alessandro Potenza and Cristian Llama.
Sergio Almiron moves into the more creative midfield role vacated by Lodi, while Adrian Ricchiuti gets a rare start in attack.
Catania: Carrizo; Bellusci, Spolli, Legrottaglie, Marchese; Izco, Almiron, Seymour; Gomez, Catellani, Ricchiuti
Catania bench: Terracciano, Capuano, Motta, Calapai, Wellington, Ebagua, Suazo
Udinese: Handanovic; Benatia, Danilo, Domizzi; Basta, Pereyra, Pinzi, Asamoah, Pasquale; Fabbrini; Di Natale
Udinese bench: Padelli, Coda, Armero, Fernandes, Pazienza, Torje, Floro Flores
