Andreolli is suspended, so Cesar will replace him and play alongside Dainelli in defence.
Despite Thereau and Marco Rigoni both being available, Corini is likely to field Hetemaj behind the two strikers.
After his hat-trick in Genoa, Paloschi will retain his starting position close to Pellissier.
Cagliari have had a tough schedule recently and were also a little bit unlucky in recent games, but they only collected two points in their last 5 matches. Time for Pulga to reverse the trend or club owner Cellino, well known for his impatience, may think about sacking him.
ChievoVerona moved out of the relegation zone with a victory at Genoa, but the Clivensi are still too close to the bottom of the table and need more points as they picked up only two in the four matches before the trip to Genoa.
Both teams know that dropping points here could drag them down, so they will probably approach the game with a defensive attitude. Corini is picking a more balanced team with Hetemaj probably going to help the midfield and press Conti. The clash will be decided by a set piece situation or a moment of magic by one of the players going through a good moment: Paloschi and Sau are the main men.
