Italy vs Austria team news
Italy will probably be deprived of Giorgio Chiellini and Alessandro Florenzi. The veteran center-back has returned to training but is out of form, while Giovanni Di Lorenzo will step up if Florenzi fails to practice late physical exercise.
Further, Marco Verratti should replace Nicolo Barella, while it is between Domenico Berardi and Federico Chiesa for who joins Ciro Immobile and Lorenzo Insigne in Italy’s top three.
Austria is sweating over Konrad Laimer and Christoph Baumgartner. If David Alaba continues left-left it will still be seen.
The Italian and Austrian lines were planned
Italy XI: Donnarumma; Di Lorenzo, Bonucci, Acerbi, Spinazzola; Locatelli, Jorginho, Verratti; Berardi’s motionless badge
Austria XI: Bachmann; Lainer, Dragovic, Hinteregger, Alaba; Laimer, Grillitsch, X. Schlager; Sabitzer, Baumgartner; Arnautovic
