Injury news

Heading into the Euro 2020 opener Italy, have a couple of injury concerns.

Marco Verratti did not feature in either of Italy’s recent friendlies and has been training alone after he suffered a knee injury several weeks ago.

Elsewhere, Alessandro Florenzi had been expected to start for Italy this weekend, but the right-back recently suffered a muscular issue which has made his inclusion vs Turkey less nailed on. The defender does seem a lot more likely to feature than Verratti but it is one to keep an eye on.

Turkey, meanwhile, currently have no new injury concerns, with Cenk Tosun – who has missed out on the tournament through injury – the only noticeable absentee.

Top 3 players to pick: Donnarumma, Immobile & Insigne

As already discussed, Italy are the favourites to win this tie, so their stars are likely to be your best options for your Euro Fantasy Football…
