Line-ups: Juventus-Udinese

Juventus are Serie A leaders and cheered on by 12,000 children in the stands as they host Udinese at 17.30 GMT.

The kick-off was brought forward so kids could pack the Juventus Stadium, replacing the ultras who are banned for anti-Neapolitan chants. Click here for a match preview.

The Bianconeri leapfrogged Roma in the standings last week and are fresh from a 3-1 Champions League victory over Copenhagen.

Kwadwo Asamoah sits out a ban, joining the injured Mauricio Isla, Sebastian Giovinco and Simone Pepe, but Stephan Lichtsteiner is back on the bench after two months out.

Fernando Llorente and Carlos Tevez again start in attack, while Andrea Barzagli returns to the defence from injury.

Udinese earned a surprise 1-0 victory over Fiorentina last week and can always count on the poaching instinct of veteran Antonio Di Natale.

Luis Muriel and Mathias Ranegie are sidelined, while Thomas Heurtaux shook off an injury to start.

The Friulani lost here 4-0 last season.
