The Czech Republic has only two injured players and one of them is midfielder Thomas Holes, who is set to be back at the end of May but we can’t be certain he will make the squad for the friendly game. Three other players are on special leave because they have to play in Fortuna Liga, but they are also set to be back at the end of May and they might make the squad.

The game will take place at the Renato Dall’Ara Stadium in Bologna, Italy.
There will be a limited amount of fans in attendance at the clash because of coronavirus restrictions
The Italian national team hasn’t lost a game since 2018 (twenty-six fixtures ago), so it’s safe to say that they are our favorite for the upcoming fixture. Czech Republic’s national team lost four of the last ten games they played, which makes them the underdog compared to Italy.
For Italy, Stefano Sensi is not expected to start the game because of an adductor injury while Francesco Acerbi is out with ligament damage.
Marco Verratti has a knee problem which means he is also unlikely to start the game.
Jorginho and Emerson Palmeiri are available following their Champions League final win with Chelsea but only the latter should start.
For the Czech Republic, Patrik Schick will be starting up front while West Ham’s Tomas Soucek should get the nod in midfield.
Italy has scored nine clean sheets in the last ten fixtures they played and although the last time they played against the Czech Republic, there were goals scored by both teams, that was in 2013 and players have changed a lot since then
