Line-ups: Verona-Udinese

Hellas Verona must beat Udinese to keep their Europa League hopes alive as Luca Toni faces Antonio Di Natale.

It’s a battle of Serie A’s grand old hitmen and kicks off at 17.00 UK time (16.00 GMT), click here for a match preview.

Verona need a victory to stay in the hunt for a top six finish, but have to do without their young star Juan Manuel Iturbe.

The Argentine is suspended along with Michelangelo Albertazzi, while Raphael Martinho and Massimo Donati are sidelined.

Juanito Gomez Taleb steps into the trident attack with Toni and Marquinho.

Udinese are decimated for this trip to the Stadio Bentegodi, missing Dusan Basta, Maicosuel and Luis Muriel, while Emmanuel Badu is only fit for the bench.

Nico Lopez and Roberto Pereyra flank Di Natale in an experimental 3-4-3 system being tested out by Coach Francesco Guidolin.
