Line-ups: Chievo-Verona

It’s Verona Derby day as Chievo and Hellas go head-to-head in a bitter grudge match.

The Stadio Bentegodi hosts the Derby della Scala at 17.00 UK time (16.00 GMT), click here for a match preview.

The last time these sides met it was a shock home defeat for Verona, as Chievo won at the death on the debut of Coach Eugenio Corini.

At the time Hellas were flying high in the European places, but they have lost a lot of momentum in 2014, sliding down to ninth.

Chievo are still fighting to stay in Serie A for another season and are currently two points clear of the drop zone.

Alberto Paloschi leads the attack for the Flying Donkeys with support from Victor Obinna and Perparim Hetemaj.

Nicolas Frey is available, as his emergency appeal against a three-match ban using video evidence was accepted last night.

Verona start with Luca Toni, Juan Manuel Iturbe and Marquinho rather than Juanito Gomez Taleb.

Michelangelo Albertazzi is suspended and Alejandro Gonzalez injured, so the defence has to be reshuffled.

Chievo: Agazzi; Frey, Dainelli, Cesar, Dramè; Radovanovic, Rigoni, Guarente; Hetemaj; Obinna, Paloschi

Chievo bench: Puggioni, Squizzi, Bernardini, Canini, Lazarevic, Bentivoglio, Guana, Sardo, Pellissier, Rubin, Stoian, Thereau

Verona: Rafael; Cacciatore, Moras, Maietta, Agostini; Romulo, Donadel, Hallfredsson; Iturbe, Toni, Marquinho

Verona bench: Nicolas, Pillud, Donati, Martinho, Cacia, Jankovic, Cirigliano, Rabusic, Gomez Taleb, Marques, Sala
