Attack in flux for Italy against Ukraine



There’s uncertainty across the beginning XI for Italy in opposition to Ukraine this night, as Giacomo Raspadori, Nicolò Zaniolo and Gianluca Mancini are all pushing for a spot.

It kicks off on the BayArena in Leverkusen at 19.45 GMT.

Some extent would suffice for the Azzurri to qualify for EURO 2024, as it will give them the superior head-to-head document due to the 2-1 win at San Siro in September.

Coach Luciano Spalletti mentioned there could be just a few modifications to the line-up that beat North Macedonia 5-2 on Friday and one a minimum of is assured, as a result of Domenico Berardi just isn’t even within the squad this time round.

It had seemed as if Gianluca Scamacca would lead the assault, however in latest hours Raspadori is once more the favorite to behave as centre-forward.

Stephan El Shaarawy and Matteo Politano have been talked about to finish the trident with Federico Chiesa, however the newest rumours counsel Aston Villa ahead Zaniolo goes to get the nod.

In defence, Giovanni Di Lorenzo returns from suspension, whereas Mancini is tipped to start out slightly than Federico Gatti within the centre.

One other sensible certainty is that Davide Frattesi will step in for Giacomo Bonaventura.
