Here’s all you need to know about Saturday’s match in Rome’s Stadio Olimpico.

Italy begin Euro 2020 against dark horses Turkey, with Roberto Mancini’s team looking to build on their recent success.

The Azzurri are currently undefeated in 27 matches, although they stay just behind absolute favorites France, England, and Belgium.

They are joined in Group A by Wales and Switzerland, with Mancini hoping to replicate their Euro 2016 group stage performance, when they topped a group that included Belgium, including a fine 2-0 victory over the Red Devils to kick off their campaign, which ended in the quarter-finals following a penalty shoot-out defeat to Germany.

Turkey, meanwhile, seems poised to cause an upset or two this summer, spearheaded by Lille’s Ligue 1 champion Burak Yilmaz, while enol Güneş’ side also boast a strong defense.

What are the team’s latest developments and who is included in the squad?

Italy

Mancini will opt for a 4-3-3 formation here, with Donnarumma lining up between the sticks behind Bonucci and Chiellini, while Florenzi is sidelined with a minor injury, which might mean Di Lorenzo comes in and Spinazzola takes over from Emerson on the left.

Jorginho, fresh off Chelsea’s Champions League victory, will partner Barella, while Locatelli might be the third member of that midfield ahead of Pellegrini, given Verratti’s current state of fitness. Insigne and Immobile are almost certain to start, with Chiesa edging Berardi for the final berth.

Squad in its entirety

Gianluigi Donnarumma, Alex Meret, and Salvatore Sirigu are the goalkeepers.

Francesco Acerbi, Alessandro Bastoni, Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini, Giovanni Di Lorenzo, Emerson, Alessandro Florenzi, Leonardo Spinazzola, and Rafael Toloi are among the defenders.

Nicolo Barella, Bryan Cristante, Jorginho, Manuel Locatelli, Lorenzo Pellegrini, Stefano Sensi, and Marco Verratti are among the midfielders.
