Line-ups: Sweden-Italy U21s

Italy go into the decisive European Under-21 Championship play-off in Sweden with Ciro Immobile, Lorenzo Insigne and Giuseppe De Luca.

The Azzurrini have a 1-0 lead from the first leg played on Friday and tonight’s clash kicks off at 17.00 BST.

Once again, Coach Devis Mangia has picked a fluid 4-4-2 with Napoli forward Insigne free to cut in from the left.

Genoa hitman Immobile is partnered by Atalanta striker Giuseppe De Luca. Many of the talents who got them through the group phase, such as Marco Verratti, Stephan El Shaarawy and Mattia Destro, are now upgraded to the senior Italy squad, while Fabio Borini is injured.

Sweden have Pescara forward Mervan Celik back in the line-up after he missed the first leg due to a ban.

Sweden U21: K Johnsson; M Johansson, Jansson, Pettersson, Demir; Hamad, Hiljemark, J Johansson, Albornoz; Ishak, Celik

Italy U21: Bardi; De Sciglio, Capuano, Caldirola, Frascatore; Florenzi, Rossi, Marrone, Insigne; Immobile, De Luca
