Line-ups: Udinese-Slovan Liberec

Udinese welcome Slovan Liberec for the first leg of their Europa League play-off, as Luis Muriel partners Antonio Di Natale.

This match is played at the Stadio Nereo Rocco in Trieste while the Stadio Friuli completes its summer reconstruction work. It kicks off at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT).

Veteran captain Di Natale leads the way with support from Muriel, but Roberto Pereyra is benched and Giampiero Pinzi given a more central role.

Zeljko Brkic is still out of action with a shoulder injury, so Ivan Kelava takes his place in goal.

Slovan Liberec pulled some surprises with their line-up, using Michael Rabusic as lone striker, but Vladyslav Kalitvincev and Josef Sural are benched.

Udinese: Kelava; Heurtaux, Danilo, Domizzi; Basta, Allan, Pinzi, Lazzari, Gabriel Silva; Muriel, Di Natale

Udinese bench: Benussi, Naldo, Pasquale, Badu, Pereyra, Maicosuel, Zielinski

Slovan Liberec: Kovar; Kusnir, Kovac, Kelic, Fleisman; Sackey; Delarge, Rybalka, Pavelka, Frydek; Rabusic
