AC Milan might have signed Fernando Torres to improve their goalscoring chances, but considering the team has been unable to win in three matches, it is understandable why the fans start to feel frustrated. This weekend they host Chievo Verona in yet another attempt to start winning again, as well as get into contention for the European places which they missed last year.
Milan are currently on the 6th place in Serie A table, and after the loss to Juventus they are still looking to recover, and against Cesena they were by far the most superior team, but unable to convert all the chances which puts Inzaghi in the position to try and change something in his team. The coach can’t count on Diego Lopez as the goalkeeper is still recovering from injury, which adds him to the existing list of Montolivo, Saponara and Marco van Ginkel. Zapata is suspended and Filippo Inzaghi might want to shuffle a little his attacking players. The bad news doesn’t finish here as Jeremy Menez has a tendon injury picked up in training and is due for assessment next week.
Chievo Verona are not in the best form either, with only four points out of five matches, which has put them on the 15th place on the table. Eugenio Corini will have to replace Brisa who is not cleared to play against his former team, which could see Meggiorini lead the attack line. Their squad is almost at the top of their form with only Izco and Lazarevi still nursing different degrees of injuries. Chievo has played against Milan on San Siro for 12 times, but were unable to win, and last season in both matches they didn’t even manage to score one goal.
