Luis Enrique’s side take on the Euro 2020 winners at the San Siro on October 6, in the last four of the competition, with La Roja aiming for a first title since 2012.
Enrique has rotated his options for the international window, with 17-year-old Gavi called up to the senior panel for the first time, in a rapid rise from U16 level for the La Masia product.
Injury has forced Pedri out of the squad, but Enrique has named Gavi as his No.9 for the game against Italy, as a hint that he will feature in Milan.
