As a result, Maurizio Domizzi, Giovanni Pasquale, Gianpiero Pinzi and Gabriel Torje will come in for Coda, Pablo Armero, Fernandes and Paulo Barreto in Francesco Guidolin's starting XI.
As for Inter, Walter Samuel is not expected to return until the penultimate match of the season, while Castaignos is dealing with a hamstring injury and will miss out on the trip to the Friuli. Also, Javier Zanetti and Cristian Chivu are to take late fitness tests prior to the match.
