Antonio Conte's going a little bit fancy with his formation against Udinese tonight, putting up a 3-4-1-2 -- likely because he's running out of defenders (can Sevilla express-mail Caceres?). But this evening sees the first paring of Matri-Quagliarella, which should interest a few people. Me, I'm more interested in the fact that Juventus are wearing the pink kits. If only Udinese could break out the old bright orange. Fabulous.
Juventus Starting XI (3-4-1-2): Gigi Buffon; Leonardo Bonucci, Andrea Barzagli, Giorgio Chiellini; Stephan Lichtsteiner, Arturo Vidal, Andrea Pirlo, Emanuele Giaccherini; Marcelo Estigarribia; Alessandro Matri, Fabio Quagliarella
Udinese Bench: Daniele Padelli, Neuton, Cristian Battocchio, Joel Ekstrand, Roberto Pereyra, Antonio Floro Flores, Gabriel Torje
PS -- it's snowing in Turin. But the new Juventus stadium has pitch heaters, wrecking my dream of a snowball fight featuring Don Marchisio.
