The dark horses of Euro 2016 face the underrated giants of the tournament as Belgium take on Italy in Group E.

Antonio Conte has decided to stick to his winning formula of 3-5-2 for Italy. He has pushed right-back Matteo Darmian into midfield ahead of his prized Juventus trio of Barzagli, Bonucci and Chiellini, while Inter Milan striker Eder pairs up with Southampton’s Graziano Pelle up front.

Marc Wilmots has addressed Belgium’s defensive woes by starting the veteran pair of Laurent Ciman and Thomas Vermaelean with the dynamic duo of Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen at the back. Marouane Fellaini also makes the cut, with the likes of Yannick Carrasco and Mousa Dembele left on the bench.
