Francesco Guidolin has warned Udinese they “cannot get it wrong” against Young Boys after a Europa League defeat.
They come face to face again tomorrow evening at the Stadio Friuli.
“We cannot rotate the squad too much, seeing as I have very few choices between injuries and those who are unavailable,” said the Coach.
“We will have 18 players at our disposal. Without so many problems I would’ve made different choices, but there’s no point thinking about that now.”
Maicosuel is not on the UEFA list, while Antonio Di Natale is starting to feel fatigued.
“Di Natale is very important for us and in some circumstances he ought to be preserved. Let us not forget there is a long season ahead of us, though on the other hand he is in good shape right now.
“I have to work out what is the best thing to do in these situations and I cannot get it wrong. We got it all wrong in Switzerland and we can’t do that again.
“The table says Liverpool are in front, but it’s still wide open for everyone, which is why we must look for the victory.
“Young Boys become really tough if we get the wrong approach, so we must do better in defence and keep the tempo up when taking the game to them. Obviously, we also have to keep a closer eye on Bobadilla.”
Hitman Bobadilla stunned Udinese with a hat-trick in the last round.
