Udinese have named their squad for the crucial Europa League visit to Samuel Eto’o team Anzhi Makhachkala.
The Friulani have gone from top to bottom of Group A after back-to-back defeats against Young Boys, so they are running out of chances to qualify for the next phase of the competition.
On Thursday they must visit Dagestan and attempt to get a result that can keep their hopes alive, as a win would put them on a par with current leaders Anzhi.
Coach Francesco Guidolin cannot bring along several players who are not on the UEFA list, including Brazilian forward Maicosuel.
When these sides met at the Stadio Friuli earlier in the group, it ended 1-1.
Udinese squad for Anzhi: Brkic, Padelli, Pawlowski; Armero, Basta, Berra, Coda, Danilo, Domizzi, Heurtaux, Pasquale; Badu, Faraoni, Pereyra, Reinthaller, Willians; Di Natale, Fabbrini, Ranegie, Marsura
