Michael Bradley will look to make it off the bench as AS Roma will try to win their third in a row in the Serie A as they host Udinese Calcio.

Bradley was an unused substitute a week as the Giallorossi came back from two goals down to defeat Genoa going away 4-2.
With nearly a full complement of players to choose from, it is anyone's guess what squad head coach Zdenek Zeman will pick for Sunday's match.

And who's to fault the skipper at the moment, with Roma winners of two in a row and in 5th place with 14 points. Victory is paramount for the Romans if they want to keep pace with Juventus, Napoli, Lazio and Inter.

Udinese comes into the match looking for consistency as they have yet to string back-to-back victories all year long. Last week, Udinese knocked off bottom feeders Pescara by a goal to zero.

One thing that has been consistent is the play of ageless striker Antonio di Natale. The 35 year old has suited up five times this season finding the back of the net twice.

Although the two tallies are good enough for club best, di Natale will have to go on a tear to approach his performance the past three seasons, in which he netted 23, 28 and 29 times respectively.
Kickoff is slated for Sunday at 8:45 p.m. local time.
