Italy v Austria lineups: Team news, injuries and suspensions

Manager Roberto Mancini has kept faith in Verratti who made an impressive comeback from injury in Italy’s 1-0 victory against Wales on Sunday, despite Locatelli scoring twice in the Azzurri’s previous Group A game against Switzerland.

Acerbi starts for the first time at Euro 2020 with Chiellini yet to recover from a muscular problem, but Mancini otherwise reverted to the side that beat the Swiss in their second game.

Austria coach Franco Foda kept faith with team that sealed second place in Group C with a 1-0 win over Ukraine on Monday.
