Line-ups: Inter-Chievo

Inter are in crisis and absolutely must beat Chievo tonight to stop their slide, so Mateo Kovacic partners Rodrigo Palacio.

It kicks off at San Siro at 20.00 GMT and rounds off Serie A Week 19. Click here for a match preview.

The Nerazzurri have had a dismal start to 2014, losing to Lazio in Serie A and on Thursday crashing out of the Coppa Italia Round of 16 at the hands of Udinese.

Fredy Guarin sits out a ban, while Saphir Taider, Mauro Icardi and Cristian Chivu are sidelined.

Kovacic is again moved into a more advanced role to support lone striker Palacio, but Diego Milito is expected to come off the bench in the second half.

Hugo Campagnaro returns from suspension to bolster the defence.

Chievo had won their first three under Eugenio Corini, but have now scraped one point from the last three games.

Luca Rigoni is suspended in midfield, so Ivan Radovanovic steps in, while Cyril Thereau and ex-Milan striker Alberto Paloschi are the front two.

The Flying Donkeys have only ever won once at San Siro back in 2001, followed by two draws and nine defeats.

Inter: Handanovic; Campagnaro, Rolando, Juan Jesus; Jonathan, Kuzmanovic, Cambiasso, Alvarez, Nagatomo; Kovacic; Palacio

Chievo: Puggioni; Frey, Dainelli, Cesar; Sardo, Bentivoglio, Radovanovic, Hetemaj, Dramé; Paloschi, Thereau
