The first of Roberto Mancini’s wishes has come true as Italy’s Minister for Health yesterday confirmed that he will allow the Stadio Barbera in Palermo to open to full capacity for Italy’s World Cup Playoff game against North Macedonia in 8 days’ time.

Although stadiums in Italy are currently restricted to 75 capacity, this restriction is expected to be lifted at the end of this month, so this decision is a lift for Mancini, who selected the Palermo ground for its vocal support so that extra 25% may make a big difference.

More good news for Mancini as well.

Ahead of tonight’s Champions League Round of 16 second leg against Villareal, Juventus boss Max Allegri has confirmed that Azzurri captain Giorgio Chiellini is available for selection after being out for a month with a muscle injury. It was feared that Mancini would be without both of his first choice central defenders but this news means he is only sweating over the fitness of Chiellini’s Juventus partner, Leonardo Bonucci.

Juventus take a 1-1 draw into tonight’s game, making them favourites to go through but from this season, away goals do not count double in Europe.

Allegri will start with both Vlahovic and Morata up front, the Serbian bringing the best out of his Spanish striking partner since he moved from Fiorentina.
