Roma midfielder Bryan Cristante is once again expected to start for Italy.

Cristante – who featured in Italy’s latest draw with North Macedonia from the start with the #16 jersey – will take his place in Luciano Spalletti’s midfield on Tuesday evening.

According to Sky Sport, Cristante is favored to start on Tuesday after a good performance against North Macedonia.

Spalletti values the Roma midfielder and considers him one of the more reliable players in the national team as Italy face a must-win encounter with Ukraine in order to qualify for next year’s EURO.
