Roberto Mancini and his Italy side will look to end their run of five matches without a win against Ukraine at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Wednesday.

The Azzurri’s lone victory under the 53-year-old came in a 2-1 victory over Saudi Arabia back in May, but since then they’ve managed just two draws and two defeats – the most recent coming against Portugal in Nations League action.

While a crucial match against Poland in Chorzow on Sunday awaits, a result against Andriy Shevchenko’s Ukraine side would no doubt boost confidence for an Italy side still looking for an identity.

Italy (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Florenzi, Bonucci, Chiellini, Biraghi; Verratti, Jorginho, Barella; Bernardeschi, Insigne, Chiesa

Ukraine (4-2-3-1): Pyatov; Karavaev, Burda, Rakitskiy, Matviyenko; Sydorchuk, Malinovskyi; Yarmolenko, Marlos, Konoplyanka; Yaremchuk
