Chievo boss Eugenio Corini has no intention of man-marking Stevan Jovetic when Fiorentina visit this afternoon.
“It is impossible to man-mark Jovetic, so we will aim to stop him by contrasting the spaces where he tends to operate,” said the Coach.
“We must overall defend against Fiorentina by already thinking about how we’ll counter-attack and try to guide their passes in a certain direction.
“The Viola know they have quality and pour forward with four or five players in front of the ball, plus Jovetic, who is becoming a champion.
“So far Inter are the team who have been able to put Fiorentina under pressure and they did that by allowing the Tuscans possession and focusing on the counter.”
Sergio Pellissier was in hospital two weeks ago suffering from kidney stones and has only had one training session.
“He could play from the start, we’ll have to see how he feels.”
