Crotone rotated their team in the midweek Coppa Italia game at Genoa and will have a fresh and rested XI when they resume their league duties this weekend.
Ante Budimir is banned this weekend, which means Marcello Trotta and Akesandar Tonev should be safe to start.
Albano Bizzarri is available after suspension, but the new manager Maurizio Oddo is likely to confirm Simone Scuffet between the posts.
Oddo is also shaping up a 3-5-1-1 formation, which differs a lot from his predecessor’s 4-4-2 or 4-3-3
~ Crotone were eliminated from the Coppa Italia despite playing well at Genoa on Thursday. However, this will now allow them to focus on securing their future in Serie A.
~ Udinese have lost their last two matches in Serie A, which were both at home. However, they would have got some confidence from a thrilling 8-3 win over Perugia in the Coppa Italia in midweek.
~ These two sides are level on points in the league and may remain level at the end of this match.
