Gianluca Mancini to start for Italy against Malta

Roma defender Gianluca Mancini is looking to start for Italy in tonight’s match with Malta.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Mancini will feature in Luciano Spalletti’s line-up alongside Alessandro Bastoni.

On the other hand, Bryan Cristante and Stephan El Shaarawy – who joined Italy’s training on Friday morning after Nicolo Zaniolo’s last minute departure – are both set to start from the bench.

Spalletti is reportedly favoring Juve’s Locatelli ahead of Cristante in Italy’s midfield at the moment.
