Roma reshuffle again in tonight’s trip to Udine, including Rodrigo Taddei at right-back, as they face Antonio Di Natale.
Serie A Week 13 opens with an unusual Friday night kick-off due to Coppa Italia commitments.
The Giallorossi are without the injured Francesco Totti, Aleandro Rosi, David Pizarro, Fabio Borini and Marco Borriello.
This gives Luis Enrique a chance to change again, as he brings back Juan, Taddei and Jose Angel for the defence.
Bojan Krkic is on the bench, so Miralem Pjanic takes the trequartista role behind Pablo Daniel Osvaldo and a more advanced Erik Lamela.
Udinese lost the top of the table with last week’s 2-0 defeat to Parma, so are eager to get back on track.
Andrea Coda and Paulo Vitor Barreto are still long-term absentees, but the 3-5-2 system remains intact with Di Natale supported by Abdi.
Udinese: Handanovic; Benatia, Danilo, Domizzi; Basta, Isla, Pinzi, Asamoah, Armero; Abdi; Di Natale
Roma: Stekelenburg; Taddei, Kjaer, Juan, Jose Angel; De Rossi, Gago, Greco; Pjanic; Lamela, Osvaldo
