Spain v Italy: Projected lineups include Costa and Cerci
Spain v Italy: Projected lineups include Costa and Cerci

What is certain to have all the potential of being the friendly of the day, Spain hosts Italy in a rematch of the 2012 UEFA European Championship.

Spain will have a new face leading their line as first time call-up Diego Costa is believed in line to make his international debut after he was included in the place of dropped Fernando Torres.

Additionally a heavy mix of Real Madrid and FC Barcelona stars are set to take the attack to the visiting Azzuri while supporting one of the two Atletico Madrid players on the pitch.

Italy have several players they will be without as Mario Balotelli is injured and Daniele De Rossi has been dropped due to controversial footage of him striking Inter Milan player Mauro Icardi.

The visitors have called on Torinnl's impressive forward Alessio Cerci to help save their attacking chances for the match but no matter what the heavily midfield laden Spanish are the favorite in this one.

Spain XI: Casillas: Juanfran, Albiol, Ramos, Alba; Iniesta, Busquets, Xavi; Pedro, Costa, Fabregas.

Italy XI: Buffon: Abate, Astori, Bonucci, Cristico; Montolivo, Prilo, Motta; Candreva; Destro, Cerci.
