The first Coppa Italia semi-final sees Udinese host Fiorentina in Udine for the first leg, with both sides desperate to reach the final and win silverware this season.
The Viola defeated their rivals in the quarter-finals of the Coppa last year, with Spanish midfielder Borja Valero scoring the only goal of the game.
However, Udinese have since won their last two meetings with Vincenzo Montella’s men, and ended a four-game losing streak in Serie A with a 2-0 win over Bologna at the weekend.
In contrast, Fiorentina were defeated by Cagliari on Saturday which was their first defeat in seven games, and still without a whole host of star players, they will be hopeful of making it through unscathed.
Nevertheless, they remain in fourth place in the league, and will now be looking to add a first Coppa Italia trophy since 2001 to their cabinet as they look to go from strength to strength with a strong squad of players.
Francesco Guidolin is likely to rely on captain Antonio Di Natale to help deny the Viola, but Montella has already warned his players against complacency as they look to return home with a favourable result.
