Inter midfielder Nicolo Barella and defenders Alessandro Bastoni and Federico Dimarco are set to start for the Italian national team in their Nations League clash with Hungary this evening.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who include the trio in their predicted starting eleven for the match, whilst they report that defender Francesco Acerbi will drop to the bench for the match.
Barella and Dimarco had both started in the Azzurri’s 1-0 win over England on Friday, whilst Bastoni had only been on the bench, whereas Acerbi had started in the backline.
Italy coach Roberto Mancini is set to put his faith in both Barella and Dimarco once again, whilst in the backline he will switch one Inter defender out for another as Bastoni is predicted to come in for Acerbi.
The Gazzetta’s complete predicted starting eleven for the match is as follows:
Italy (3-5-2): Donnarumma; Toloi, Bonucci, Bastoni; Di Lorenzo, Barella, Jorginho, Pobega, Dimarco; Gnonto, Raspadori.
