Line-ups: Palermo-Cagliari

Giuseppe Sannino risks the wrath of his President by leaving Paulo Dybala on the bench as Palermo welcome Cagliari in the 17.00 UK time kick-off.

Serie A Week 3 opens up at the Stadio Barbera with two teams already in crisis. Remember you can watch this game LIVE on your PC.

Despite the warnings of President Maurizio Zamparini, Sannino has again left Dybala on the bench in favour of Josip Ilicic, Abel Hernandez and Fabrizio Miccoli.

It’s a special game for Mauricio Pinilla, who faces his former teammates after an ill-tempered split in January.

He is partnered by Thiago Ribeiro and Andrea Cossu in a trident attack, while Davide Astori is only fit for the bench after pulling out of international duty.
