Italian Serie A side Udinese are counting on the availability of Ghana international midfielder Emmanuel Agyeman Badu to beat Lazio on Saturday.

The Little Zebras have the Black Stars third-in-command ready for the clash at the Stadio Communale Fruili after he missed the trip to Sassuolo last weekend.

Udinese have picked just a point from their last three league games and lie in lowly 14th spot on the league chart.

Manager Giuseppe Lachini is happy with the availability of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Ghana star for selection and has named him in his squad for the game.

Badu has started five (5) of Udinese's six (6) games in the season.
