Fabio Cannavaro will make his Serie A debut as a coach for Udinese in a game that will only last 18 minutes, while Chris Smalling is expected to start for Roma.

Udinese and Roma meet at the Bluenergy Stadium tomorrow, Thursday, April 25, for a rescheduled Serie A fixture.

The match was abandoned at minute 72 on April 14 following Evan Ndicka’s collapse, so Udinese and Roma will play the remaining 18 minutes plus add-ons.

As explained earlier today, Roma and Udinese can entirely change their line-ups and use all the available players except those who had been subbed off before the interruption. They are Kingsley Ehizibue and Hassane Kamara for Udinese, Dean Huijsen and Houssem Aouar for Roma.

Sandi Lovric, Florian Thauvin, Gerard Deulofeu, Enzo Ebosse and Lautaro Giannetti are injured for the Bianconeri, while Daniele De Rossi will be without the Romelu Lukaku and Ndicka who will return to action for the last games of the season after receiving green light from doctors. 

Sardar Azmoun was injured when Udinese-Roma was originally played, but according to Sky Sport Italia, the Iran international will start tomorrow.
