Italy-Northern Macedonia, the probable formations

Italy and North Macedonia will face each other on the penultimate day of the qualifiers for the upcoming European Championships. Kickoff at 8:45 p.m. at the Stadio Olimpico. Luciano Spalletti’s Azzurri, after the heavy knockout against England, are called to get the three points, so they can play for direct qualification to the final stages of the European Championship in the last match against Ukraine, with two results out of three at their disposal.

The former Napoli coach is expected to rely on the offensive trident consisting of Berardi, Raspadori and Chiesa. In defense, in front of Donnarumma, there will be Acerbi and Gatti, with Darmian and Dimarco as full-backs. Milevski, on the other hand, is expected to field the attacking pair of Elmas and Miovski, with Bardhi as a trequartista.

Probable lineups

ITALY (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Darmian, Gatti, Acerbi, Dimarco; Barella, Jorginho, Bonaventura; Berardi, Raspadori, Chiesa. Ct: Spalletti.

NORTHERN MACEDONIA (3-4-1-2): Dimitrievski; Manev, Serafimov, Musliu; Ashkovski, Elezi, Atanasov, Alioski; Bardhi; Elmas, Miovski. Ct: Milevski.
