Belmonte's ban has been reduced, so he will be able to play from the 11th of December.
Reginaldo may have a chance in the starting XI, in which case one of Rosina and Valiani will start on the bench.
Cosmi is going to stick with the defensive pack he has used the most, with Contini, Neto and Felipe.
Chievo have been inconsistent recently, so Corini has to make sure the team doesn't lose focus in such an important match in the battle for survival.
Siena moved off the bottom of the table for the first time this season with a victory over Pescara and may even dream of leaving the relegation zone as well which would be an impressive feat given the points penalisation they started with.
The hosts should try to keep control of the match and avoid losing balance. Siena will probably start very defensive as Cosmi usually does when playing away, so the match may not have many goal scoring chances. Unless an isolated incident changes the score, the two teams may even be happy with a point here.
