Despite some calls for to start Italy’s 0 semi-final with Spain on Tuesday, Lazio forward is set to keep his place in the XI.

Roberto Mancini spoke out in defence of Immobile on Monday in his pre-match press conference, and the 2019/20 European Golden Shoe winner is thought to have enough credit in the bank to hold onto his place up front.

As per Sky Sport Italia, Immobile will continue in attack alongside the ever-present Lorenzo Insigne, with Federico Chiesa also hanging onto his place in the XI having dislodged Domenico Berardi.

The predicted XIs of both Italy and Spain are as follows:

Italy: Donnarumma; Di Lorenzo, Bonucci, Chiellini, Emerson; , Jorginho, Verratti; Chiesa, Immobile, Insigne.

Spain: Simon; Azpilicueta, Eric Garcia, Laporte, Jordi ; Busquets, Koke, Pedri; Ferran Torres, Morata, Olmo.
