Italy boss Roberto Mancini has some key lineup decisions to make ahead of tonight’s Euro 2020 last-16 match against Austria at Wembley.

With Paris Saint-Germain star Marco Verratti injured at the start of the tournament, Sassuolo’s Manuel Locatelli started in the centre of midfield and put in two terrific performances, including scoring twice in the win over Switzerland.

However, Verratti returned as Mancini made wholesale changes for the third group game against Wales and looked as if he’d never been away.

Here is how we predict the two sides will shape up in London this evening...
