Italy vs Ukraine: Preview, kick-off time, and where to watch on TV and online

Luciano Spalletti's Azzurri will play on Italian soil for the first time on Tuesday as they host Ukraine at the Stadio San Siro, and they'll be hoping to see improvements after a disappointing draw against North Macedonia.


The Italy Men’s National Team host Ukraine at the Stadio San Siro in Milan in their 2024 European Championship qualifier on Tuesday evening, and the Italians need to get a win to maintain any chance of automatic qualification for next year’s tournament in Germany.

Luciano Spalletti made his debut as Azzurri coach on Saturday evening when Italy were held to a 1-1 draw against North Macedonia, leaving the Italians in third place in Group C with four points, three behind the Ukrainians. Ukraine drew 1-1 against England in their previous Euro 2024 qualifier, so the hosts cannot take afford to take them lightly.

Italy vs Ukraine: Predicted line-ups

Spalletti will probably stick with the 4-3-3 formation, and he will be missing Federico Chiesa and Lorenzo Pellegrini, who withdrew from the Italy squad due to injuries.

Wingers Matteo Politano and Mattia Zaccagni struggled to make a significant impact against North Macedonia so it would not be surprising if captain Ciro Immobile has other players supporting him in attack.

Ukraine coach Serhiy Rebrov will likely persist with the line-up that held England to a draw, leaving experienced forward Andriy Yarmolenko on the bench.

Italy predicted XI vs Ukraine (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Di Lorenzo, Mancini, Bastoni, Dimarco; Barella, Cristante, Tonali; Gnonto, Immobile, Raspadori.

Ukraine predicted XI vs Italy (4-2-3-1): Bushchan; Konoplia, Zabarnyi, Matviyenko, Mykolenko; Stepanenko, Zinchenko; Tsigankov, Sudakov, Mudryk; Yaremchuk.
