Italy welcome Group 3 leaders Portugal with qualification for next years final on the line. Portugal are currently top with 6 points from two games with Italy close on their heels with 4. A win for Roberto Mancini’s men will take them above Portugal although the 2016 European Champions will still have a game in hand. Poland, the third team in the group is relegated which means both these nations will continue to be part of Group A in the next iteration. For now the focus will be on the San Siro for the clash of two giants of European football. Roberto Mancini has made massive changes to his squad and eight players who were part of the previous round of games have been shown the door by the former Manchester City boss. Some of the regular names like Marco Verrati, Jorginho, Giorgio , and Leonardo Bonnuci will be part of the starting eleven and look to build on the momentum gained by the victory against Poland. Juventus star Federico Bernardeschi is not in the squad due to an injury and his place in the eleven will be taken up by Cristiano Biraghi. The game is also a special occasion for veteran defender Giorgio Chiellini who will win his 100th cap for Italy in front of a capacity crowd in Milan.

Portugal will once again be without the services of skipper Cristiano Ronaldo who is on a self-imposed exile from the national team. It is yet unclear whether the Juventus forward will return to playing for the national team. The team has performed even in the absence of Ronaldo with a string of wins which must have pleased coach Fernando Santos. Midfielder Pizzi has been one of the finds of the past 2018 World Cup era for Portugal and all eyes will be on him once again. Defender Pepe is suspended for the tie and in his absence, Santos may opt for Ruben Dias to partner Jose Fonte. The two Silvas upfront- Bernardo and Andre will share the bulk of the attacking responsibility.
The Italian are left with no choice but to go for an all-out attacking game which means there will be space at the back for Portugal to capitalize. With Portuguese forward players in fine form, it will not be a surprise if the game ends in a win for the away side.
