Italy Injuries & Team News

Defenders: Francesco Acerbi, Alessandro Bastoni, Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini, Giovanni Di Lorenzo, Emerson Palmieri, Alessandro Florenzi, Leonardo Spinazzola, Rafael Toloi
Midfielders: Nicolo Barella, Bryan Cristante, Jorginho, Manuel Locatelli, Lorenzo Pellegrini, Stefano Sensi, Marco Verratti

Midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini remains injured but Roberto Mancini has plenty of options. 

Marco Verratti is expected to keep his place next to Jorginho with Manuel Locatelli and Nicolo Barella battling it out for the third spot. 

Centre back Giorgio Chiellini was injured against Switzerland. Francesco Acerbi or Alessandro Bastoni should start next to Leonardo Bonucci in central defence. 

Alessandro Florenzi is doubtful which could see Giovanni Di Lorenzo start at right back.

Austria Form

Austria had a poor preparation for Euro 2020. They won one of their six previous matches which included a 4-0 home defeat to Denmark in the World Cup qualifiers.

Franco Foda’s side started Euro 2020 with a 3-1 win against North Macedonia. Stefan Lainer, Michael Gregoritsch and Marko Arnautovic all scored in Bucharest.

Austria then suffered a 2-0 defeat against Netherlands. They struggled to create clear cut chances in Amsterdam with one shot on target.

Austria’s last match was a 1-0 win against Ukraine. Christoph Baumgartner opened the scoring in the 21st minute and they did well to restrict Ukraine to one shot on target.
