Chievo, winners of one in five matches, have a perfect chance to play spoiler as they travel to the Giuseppe Meazza to take on Inter Milan with just three matches remaining in the season.
Inter Milan news (D-D-D-W-D)
While Inter Milan has been relatively injury-free for the last few weeks, this week is a bit different. Calciomercato reports that defender Stefan de Vrij will be out of Monday’s contest with Chievo.
Marcelo Brozovic and Danilo D’Ambrosio are also out thanks to red card suspension.
With de Vrij out, Joao Miranda could play his last match in front of the crowd at the Meazza in de Vrij’s place, according to WhoScored.com.
As D’Ambrosio is also out, loanee Cedric Soares could also start, marking his last likely appearance for the home crowd as Inter is not likely to redeem him at the end of the season.
Brozovic’s absence opens the door for Roberto Gagliardini to earn a start Monday.
Probable lineup: Handanovic; Asamoah, Miranda, Skriniar, Soares; Gagliardini, Valero, Nainggolan; Perisic, Politano; Icardi.
Chievo Verona news (L-D-W-L-L)
The biggest news this week for lowly Chievo is the announcement that captain Sergio Pellissier will retire at the end of the season.
Otherwise, it has been a pretty poor season for the Gialloblu.
To make matters worse, they will be without Ezequiel Schelotto and Luca Rossettini for the match Monday, as both are out due to injury, according to WhoScored.
One of the biggest issues for Chievo has been its leaky defense.
This season, the Gialloblu have managed to let in a league-high 73 goals while only scoring 25. Its -48 goal differential is also a league-high.
Also of note, Chievo has managed just two wins in 35 matches this season, a league low – with one of those being a 2-1 win against Lazio recently.
Probable lineup: Semper; Andriolli, Cesar, Barba; Depaoli, Hetemaj, Rigoni, Jaroszynski; Vignato, Stepinski, Meggiorini.
Time and Date: 2 p.m. (EDT) Monday, May 13, 2019
Location: Giuseppe Meazza (Milan)
