Italy’s post-season friendlies reach their conclusion this Monday evening as they host the Netherlands at Juventus’ Allianz Arena in Turin.

Despite returning to the national team and being handed the captain’s armband as well as scoring, Mario Balotelli does not make Roberto Mancini’s XI and Lorenzo Insigne instead takes the role of captain in another largely experimental side.

With neither side heading to the World Cup in Russia this summer, both will be looking to try out something new in the game and it should make for interesting viewing, with the Dutch themselves having drawn with Slovakia last week.

Italy: Perin; Zappacosta, Rugani, Romagnoli, Criscito; Cristante, Jorginho, Bonaventura; Verdi, Belotti, Insigne.

Netherlands: Cillessen; Hateboer, De Ligt, Van Dijk, Blindt; De Roon, Vormer, Wijnaldum; Babel, Depay, Vilhena
