Line-ups: Udinese-AZ

Udinese have Antonio Di Natale and Antonio Floro Flores leading the way as they try to overturn a first leg Europa League defeat to AZ Alkmaar.

The Friulani were beaten 2-0 in Holland and face an uphill struggle to reach the quarter-finals.

Di Natale has barely featured in the competition this season, but is in the starting XI after recovering from an injury.

Dusan Basta is not fit enough to feature, but Kwadwo Asamoah, Pablo Armero, Giampiero Pinzi and Floro Flores do start.

AZ stick with a trident attack led by Jozy Altidore, Brett Holman and Roy Beerens.

Erik Falkenburg starts, but the other first leg scorer Maarten Martens is unavailable.

Udinese: Handanovic; Benatia, Domizzi, Ekstrand; Ferronetti, Pinzi, Pazienza, Asamoah, Armero; Floro Flores, Di Natale

Udinese bench: Padelli, Neuton, Pasquale, Battocchio, Abdi, Fabbrini, Marsura
