Marchisio set to miss Italy friendly

Claudio Marchisio could be out of Italy's friendly match with Brazil this evening because of a fever.

Calcio News have reported that the Juventus midfielder may miss the Azzurri's game with Luis Felipe Scolari's side tonight, with Riccardo Montolivo set to replace him.

Cesare Prandelli had been expected to line-up with a 4-3-1-2 formation, based on a midfield triumvirate of Daniele De Rossi, Andrea Pirlo and Marchisio.

But if reports are to be believed, the Milan playmaker will start in place of the Bianconeri man.
