Hungary vs. Italy probable line-ups

Gianluca Scamacca and Giacomo Raspadori are expected to lead the Italy squad against Hungary in the Nations League, with Alessandro Bastoni and Tommaso Pobega stepping in.

It kicks off in Budapest on Monday at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT).

Only a victory would be enough for the Azzurri to win the group and reach the Final Four, as Marco Rossi’s Hungary can secure their place with a draw as well.

Roberto Mancini is expected to stick with the same 3-5-2 formation that allowed him to beat England 1-0 on Friday evening.

There are a few adjustments, such as Inter defender Bastoni coming in for his club teammate Francesco Acerbi, while Milan midfielder Pobega gets his first start in place of Bryan Cristante.

Former Sassuolo partners Scamacca and Raspadori again start upfront.

There are a few other potential adjustments, such as Willy Gnonto for Scamacca, or Emerson Palmieri rather than Federico Dimarco.

Ciro Immobile did not make the trip and therefore joined the lengthy list of absentees already confirmed from the first game.

Hungary will wave goodbye to captain Adam Szalai, who is hanging up his international boots after this match.

Probable line-ups

Hungary (3-4-2-1): Gulacsi; Lang, Orban, Attila Szalai; Fiola, Schafer, Nagy, Kerkez; Gazdag, Szoblozlai; Adam Szalai

Italy (3-5-2): Donnarumma; Toloi, Bonucci, Bastoni; Di Lorenzo, Barella, Jorginho, Pobega, Dimarco; Scamacca, Raspadori
