Quagliarella, who was very active and also grabbed a goal when coming on in the second half against Galatasaray in the Champions League 2-2 draw in midweek, replaces Mirko Vucinic, who is injured, from that starting side.
On bench is midfielder Paul Pogba, with Claudio Marchisio, Simone Padoin, Andrea Pirlo, Kwadwo Asamoah, and Arturo Vidal all starting in midfield.
Sebastian Giovinco and Fernando Llorente all both on the substitutes’ bench and could get a run out tonight.
Meanwhile, with Mario Balotelli suspended and Stephan El Shaarawy still recovering from an injury, Robinho and Alessandro Matri have been asked to lead the attacking line, with Sulley Muntari, Riccardo Montolivo and Antonio Nocerino playing in supporting roles in the midfield.
