Udinese Coach Francesco Guidolin feels his men need “the perfect performance” to beat Fiorentina today.
The Stadio Friuli hosts the Serie A clash at 17.00 UK time and just one point separates them.
“We are facing an excellent side that has already played at a high level in its last two away games at Milan and Juventus,” said the tactician.
“We have also studied their last game against Cagliari very carefully. Fiorentina have a good tempo and individual talents. We'll need the perfect performance, so I want to see focus, temperament and precision.”
Alexis Sanchez has recovered from a muscular problem and should start today's game, while the three-man defence is likely to be maintained after last week's experiments.
“If the doctors give me the all-clear, then I will use him,” concluded Guidolin.
Maurizio Domizzi is suspended, while Dusan Basta and Damiano Ferronetti are still on the treatment table.
