Line-ups: Di Natale returns

Antonio Di Natale, Mauricio Isla and Fabrizio Miccoli are back from the start as Udinese welcome Palermo.

Capocannoniere and Ballon d'Or candidate Di Natale missed the midweek trip to Napoli and the Friulani looked a different team without him.

Now the striker is back in the starting XI along with Isla and Antonio Floro Flores, sending Gabriel Torje to the bench.

Giovanni Pasquale, Damiano Ferronetti, Andrea Coda and Paulo Vitor Barreto are still out of action.

Palermo have a 100 per cent record on home turf, but their away form is disastrous, so Coach Devis Mangia has reportedly taken unusual steps to correct that.

He has taken a patch of grass from the Stadio Renzo Barbera pitch and flew it with the team to Udine as a good luck charm.

More likely to help their cause is the fact Miccoli has recovered from a muscular problem to start in attack.

He is unusually backed by Matias Aguirregaray and Eran Zahavi, benching Josip Ilicic, while Mauricio Pinilla is injured.
