    Predicted lineups for Liechtenstein –Italy

    Italy face Liechtenstein tonight in a key 2018 World Cup qualifier as getting the three points is the minimum target for Giampiero Ventura’s lads who will have to win scoring as much goals as possible to challenge Spain’s group leadership.

    Spain and Italy share the first spot of the group, but Julen Lopetegui’s side have a goal difference of +10, whilst Italy have a mere +3 which means that the azzurri would have to qualify to the next edition of the World Cup through the play-off stage.

    Ventura will opt for a very offensive 4-2-4 system with Immobile and Belotti in attack and the duo Candreva-Bonaventura playing as wingers. Verratti and De Rossi are expected to start in centre midfield with Zappacosta, Bonucci, Romagnoli and De Sciglio in defence. Gianluigi Buffon will start in goal.
