Line-ups: Udinese-Palermo

Palermo revamp with Paulo Dybala, Fabrizio Miccoli and Josip Ilicic starting together against Antonio Di Natale’s Udinese.

This game kicks off at 17.00 GMT at the Stadio Friuli, opening up Serie A Week 17.

The Friulani have Giovanni Pasquale back from injury to start as Roberto Pereyra acts as support to Di Natale.

Mehdi Benatia and Willians are out of action, so Thomas Heurtaux plays in the back three.

Palermo make big changes in a bid to end their dismal away record, as Gian Piero Gasperini risks a new trident attack.

Miccoli starts with Ilicic and teenage Argentine talent Dybala together.

Michel Morganella is suspended, while Abel Hernandez and Andrea Mantovani are long-term absentees.

Udinese bench: Padelli, Angella, Faraoni, Ranegie, Coda, Lazzari, Muriel, Armero, Fabbrini, Gabriel Silva, Maicosuel, Pawlowski
