Italia Football Italy has named the 24 players it will feature in the last-16 of the Champions Ligue 1.
The first leg of the semi-finals takes place on Wednesday at 19:00 GMT (17:00 CET) and will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.
Goalkeeper Alessandro Nesta, who is the highest-scoring Italian player in Ligue 2, will be paired with former Liverpool man Philippe Coutinho.
The pair will also be joined by Milan legend Alessandro Matri and former Roma striker Francesco Totti.
Goalkeepers Andrea Pirlo and Andrea Pisanu are also set to feature.
It is the Italian side’s first appearance in the final since 2011.
In a further twist, it will be the first time the Italian players are paired together for a European final since the 2011 final between Milan and Atalanta in Rome.
Pianu, who was the highest scorer in Serie A with 27 goals last season, has also made it clear he will be part of the line-up.
The match will be watched by millions and could see the final between the two sides clash.
