Line-ups: Lecce visit Palermo

Palermo welcome Lecce in the final match of Serie A Week 9 this evening with Mauricio Pinilla in attack.

Serie A Week 9 concludes at the Stadio Renzo Barbera at 19.45 UK time and both teams are fresh from two consecutive defeats.

The Rosanero hope to maintain their 100 per cent record on home turf and again use the 4-3-1-2 system after abandoning the 4-4-2.

Mauro Cetto gets his first start on a Palermo jersey, while Afriyie Acquah has been picked along with Edgar Barreto and Giulio Migliaccio in midfield.

Abel Hernandez and Mauricio Pinilla are the strikers, supported by Slovenian trequartista Josip Ilicic, so Lecce native Fabrizio Miccoli is on the bench.

Lecce are still without goalkeeper Julio Sergio, David Di Michele, Stefano Ferrario and Souleymane Diamoutene.

Cuadrado has been picked in attack with Daniele Corvia.

Palermo: 33 Tzorvas; 31 Pisano, 3 Silvestre, 4 Cetto, 42 Balzaretti; 8 Migliaccio, 20 Acquah, 5 Barreto; 27 Ilicic; 11 Hernandez, 51 Pinilla
