Italy is ready to face Croatia in about half an hour. Italy stats say they have never won against Croatia in their 5 encounters so far. Are the Azzuri ready to put this negative stat to an end by finally beating Croatia today?

Croatia manager Slaven Bilic says: ”Italy are strong, they think about us and about our play. Prandelli respects us. They have a team and players who can dominate on the pitch. I don’t believe that much in tradition but it’s nice to know that we never lose against Italy”

From the other camp, Prandelli insists Balotelli has been more focused in training… but he also says : “I’m not thinking about many changes, just one.”

Italy Starting XIX
                                Gianluigi Buffon; 
       Leonardo Bonucci, Daniele De Rossi, Giorgio Chiellini; 
Maggio, Marchisio, Andrea Pirlo, Thiago Motta, E. Giaccherini; 
                   Antonio Cassano, Mario Balotelli

Their last encounter:
