Manager Giovanni Trapattoni has named the same starting lineup that began against Croatia for the team's final game of Euro 2012 at the Municipal Stadium in Poznan.
Duff, 33, will lead the Irish out after taking the captain's armband from Robbie Keane - both players made their senior international debuts against the Czech Republic in 1998.
"It's obviously an awfully proud moment, but I would take three points tomorrow ahead of 100 caps at the minute," said Duff.
"I know how much it means to myself and my family and what have you, but I am not trying to make a big deal out of it.
"I just want to get on with the game and hopefully do the business."
While the Republic cannot progress to the knockout stages of the Poland-Ukraine tournament, following two defeats, Trapattoni has fielded his strongest starting 11.
The match against Italy kicks off at 7.45pm on Monday evening.
Republic of Ireland: Given; O'Shea, Dunne, St Ledger, Ward; Duff (Capt), Whelan, Andrews, McGeady; Keane, Doyle.
