Udinese Vs. Lazio, Lineps: The Tiny Terrors Of Antonio Di Natale And Alexis Sanchez Return

Yes yes it's a Champions League six pointer today at the Stadio Friuli, with Udinese hosting Lazio while simultaneously crossing all their fingers and toes to wish back their good run of form. While the zebrette hold out hope that the return of Alexis Sanchez and Antonio Di Natale will bolster them back into winning ways, Lazio are praying to all the saints and angels that they can just keep eleven men on the pitch. 

A point would do for both sides, of course, but nothing less than all three will really provide any comfort. Particularly with Roma sitting even with Lazio right now -- the Biancocelesti have something to prove, so that could make it interesting, right? One can hope, anyway.

Udinese Starting XI: 1 Handanovic; 17 Benatia, 2 Zapata, 45 Angella; 3 Isla, 19 Badu, 66 Pinzi, 20 Asamoah, 27 Armero; 7 Sanchez, 10 Di Natale

Lazio Starting XI: 86 Muslera; 2 Lichtsteiner, 20 Biava, 3 Dias, 14 Garrido; 32 Brocchi, 11 Matuzalem; 15 Gonzalez, 8 Hernanes, 22 Floccari; 10 Zarate
