Italy revamp with Armenia

Italy can complete a perfect qualifying record for Euro 2020 when hosting Armenia tomorrow, but Roberto Mancini plans changes.

It kicks off at the Stadio Barbera in Palermo on Monday at 19.45 GMT.

The Azzurri already set a new all-time record of 10 consecutive victories and can end Group J with 10 wins out of 10.

Following Friday’s 3-0 victory in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Mancini is expected to ring the changes, resting the likes of Alessandro Florenzi, Emerson Palmieri, Sandro Tonali, Nicolò Barella, Federico Bernardeschi and Andrea Belotti.

Salvatore Sirigu is more likely than Alex Meret, who would be a debutant, to start in goal rather than Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Napoli’s Giovanni Di Lorenzo can receive his second cap, after starting against Liechtenstein last month, with Alessio Romagnoli and Cristiano Biraghi stepping in.

Fiorentina midfielder Gaetano Castrovilli made his debut as a substitute in Bosnia and could get his first start, with Nicolò Zaniolo flanking the ever-present Jorginho.

Federico Chiesa and Ciro Immobile can step into the trident attack, with Stephan El Shaarawy probably coming in for Lorenzo Insigne.

Italy (probable): Sirigu; Di Lorenzo, Bonucci, Romagnoli, Biraghi; Castrovilli, Jorginho, Zaniolo; Chiesa, Immobile, El Shaarawy
