Line-ups: Italy-Sweden U21

Italy go for the Under-21 European Championship play-offs against Sweden with Ciro Immobile, Lorenzo Insigne and Giuseppe De Luca in attack.

The Azzurrini topped their group and tonight welcome their Swedish counterparts to the Stadio Adriatico in Pescara.

These include Milan full-back Mattia De Sciglio, Roma midfielder Alessandro Florenzi and the attacking trio of Genoa’s Immobile, Napoli’s Insigne and Atalanta’s De Luca.

Fabio Borini was expected to start, but the Liverpool striker fractured his foot in training this week.
