Both sides have made positive starts to their respective 2014 World Cup qualifying campaigns and will look to use this match to keep their momentum going.
Italy are unbeaten in Group B and with 10 points from four matches, Cesare Prandelli's side are four points clear at the top.
On the other hand, France are second behind Spain in Group I but only on goal difference, as both have collected seven points from three matches.
France coach Didier Deschamps had to call up Bordeaux defender Benoit Tremoulinas as a late replacement for Manchester City left-back Gael Clichy, who pulled out of the squad on Monday with a lower back problem.
Possible starting lineups:
Italy: Buffon, Santon, Chiellini, Barzagli, Balzaretti, Marchisio, Montolivo, Giaccherini, Pirlo, Balotelli, El Shaarawy
France: Lloris, Debuchy, Evra, Sakho, Koscielny, Cabaye, Valbuena, Gonalons, Ribery, Menez, Giroud
