Udinese will play their clash with Barcelona missing vital members of the squad.Udinese manager Serse Cosmi has admitted that his side will play their clash with group leaders Barcelona missing vital members of the squad.
Cosmi is not expected to risk any players that have slight niggles as his team have already qualified for the second phase of the competition.
This means that Vincenzo Iaquinta, Felipe and Mirko Pieri will all miss the clash with the Spanish side, however Vincent Candela, Valerio Bertotto and Fausto Rossini are expected to line up against the Catalan giants after missing the league game with Livorno on Sunday.
Meanwhile Cosmi has been lifted by the news that Barcelona will travel to the Friuli stadium without two of their most important components.
Both Samuel Eto'o and Ronaldinho will remain in Spain to rest.
