Corini: 'Courageous Chievo'

Eugenio Corini wants “a tough and courageous performance” in Chievo’s relegation showdown with Livorno.

These two sides are truly desperate and go head-to-head at 14.00 UK time (13.00 GMT), click here for a match preview.

Livorno are third from bottom on 25 points and Chievo have 27, so it’s a real six-pointer this afternoon.

“It will certainly be a difficult match, as we will be playing in a fiery and passionate atmosphere, as it should be in such an important game for the whole season,” said Chievo Coach Corini.

“We must do well to combine a good performance with a satisfying result. In order to prevail in this tie, we need a tough and courageous performance.

“I want to see a team determined to bring home the three points and celebrate with the fans who’ll welcome us home.

“In many ways, this game with Livorno is similar to last season’s against Siena. At the time we had a bigger cushion from the drop zone, but a defeat would’ve blown the whole race wide open again.

“We need to pick up points, but are also aware that as things stand the other sides have to chase us.”
