Team News

  • Zeljko Brkic was suspended for the weekend's league game at Siena but is available to replace Padelli in Europe and should start.
  • Pablo Armero should also return to the side in place of Pasquale on the left with Barreto continuing in support of lone front man Di Natale due to Muriel's injury.
  • There is competition for places in the midfield, with Allan given the nod over Pereyra, Willians and Faraoni last time out.
  • Goalkeeper Vladimir Gabulov missed Anzhi's last league game through injury and Pomazan could continue to deputise in goal.
  • Yuri Zhirkov has recovered from injury, coming off of the bench at the weekend, and could be in line for a place in the XI in a line-up also including familiar names such as Christopher Samba and Lass Diarra.
  • Undoubtedly the star man for the club however, Samuel Eto'o has scored 5 goals in 7 league games this season in a decent partnership with big man Lacina Traore.


  • Udinese have had a terrible start to the season, picking up just 1 point from 3 games having led 2-0 at the weekend only to draw with Siena having gone down to 10-men.
  • Anzhi will be more than confident of their abilities in this competition after annihilating AZ Alkmaar 6-0 over two legs to qualify, having no problems whatsoever with the travelling demands, winning 5-0 in Holland.
  • Guidolin's side's morale may be at an all time low after falling at the Champions League qualification hurdle for the second year running. Expect Hiddink to set his side out to exploit their hosts' current lack of form.
