ITALY v FINLAND BETTING PREVIEW
Italy topped their Euro 2016 qualification group by 4 points away from second placed Croatia with an unbeaten record of 7 wins and 3 draw. The Azzurri narrowly beat Scotland 1-0 in their last International Friendly outing in Malta last Sunday, dominating possession but struggling to take chances. That result ended a streak of six friendlies without a victory as draws against Romania and Spain were sandwiched by comprehensive defeats to Belgium and Germany.
Ciro Immobile and Simone Zaza are expected to replace Graziano Pellè and Eder up front. Stefan El Shaarawy and Antonio Candreva will probably support the attack while Daniele De Rossi, Stefano Sturaro and Thiago Motta will play in the middle of the park. In defense, Leonardo Bonucci is likely to be rested and Rugani should replace his team-mate.
Finland missed out on qualification to Euro 2016 after finishing behind Northern Ireland, Romania and Hungary in a very weak group. Anyway, they posted an impressive draw against Belgium in their last friendly fixture on Wednesday. Their major weakness is the attacking play - Hans Backe's men have scored just one goal in their last five matches.
Sampdoria's Niklas Moisander, Finland's regular captain, missed five matches due to injury late in the Serie A season and was not selected by Backe. Perparim Hetemaj and Roman Eremenko will be the key players in midfield, while former Celtic striker Teemu Pukki will lead the line.
Italy are undefeated against Finland in their previous ten games, they are currently on a 6 game winning streak against the Finnish national team.
ITALY v FINLAND PROBABLE LINEUPS
