Line-ups: Sneijder benched with Chievo

Inter have Lucio back in defence against Inter today, but Wesley Sneijder is only fit for the bench.

Leonardo needs a result to lift morale after back-to-back defeats against Milan and Schalke. Kick-off at San Siro is at 17.00 UK time.

Cristian Chivu is suspended following his red card in the derby, joining Walter Samuel in the stands.

There were injury fears over Dejan Stankovic and Sneijder, but the Serb is fit to start and the Dutchman ready for the bench.

Mantovani wanted in Spain

Highly-rated Chievo stopper Andrea Mantovani is being chased by two Spanish clubs, according to reports.

Mantovani is one of the Stadio Bentegodi outfit's most prized assets and his ability has caught the attention of two La Liga sides.

According to a number of sources in Italy and Spain, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla are very keen on his signature.

Mantovani was linked with moves to Napoli and Sampdoria last summer but he remained loyal to the Flying Donkeys.

Roma to net Sorrentino?

Roma will reportedly make an attempt to sign Stefano Sorrentino from Chievo at the end of the current campaign.

There is some uncertainty over the goalkeeping position in the capital given the use of both Julio Sergio and Alexander Doni this term under bosses Claudio Ranieri and Vincenzo Montella.

That has led many to believe that the capital giants are looking for a new custodian and Sorrentino could be that man.

Pellissier furious with referee

Chievo striker Sergio Pellissier believes it's more than a coincidence that when his team faces clubs like Milan the referee performs poorly.

The Flying Donkeys were incensed on Sunday when Robinho's first half opener was allowed even though he blatantly handled the ball.

Chievo lost 2-1 and slid to 13th in the table.

Speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli, Pellissier said: "Strangely when we play against teams like Milan they always send us Luca Banti to referee and strangely we have never won.

Pioli: 'Milan are the best, but...'

Stefano Pioli believes Milan are “the best side in Serie A, but we start on level terms and Chievo can beat them.”

Teams like Inter and Napoli have already fallen at the Bentegodi this season and the Coach aims for another famous scalp.

“Milan are the strongest side in Serie A. They have the best defence and the best strike force, so if they are in front of everyone then there must be a reason,” said Pioli.

Pioli: 'Robinho evidently handled'

Stefano Pioli protested at an “evident handling offence” from Robinho on a goal that sank Chievo.

Milan won 2-1 at the Bentegodi, but the deadlock was broken by Robinho controlling the ball with his arm to fire in.

“It was an evident handling offence. I had a clear view from the bench and saw it straight away,” shrugged the Flying Donkeys Coach.

“The shame is that the referee was also perfectly placed to see it. It was a clear mistake and you can see the defenders stopped too as they appealed for the free kick.

Pioli demands super Chievo

Chievo boss Stefano Pioli concedes that his side will need to put in a "super" performance if they are to stop Milan.

The Veronese outfit entertain the Rossoneri at the Bentegodi this weekend in a game that the tactician knows will be difficult.

"On paper, we should lose this one but games always begin at 0-0, 11 against 11, and we are determined to play our cards," he noted.

"Milan are not top of the table by chance. They have the best defence and the best attack, they deserve their position in the standings.

Mazzarri: 'Napoli learn from defeat'

Napoli crumbled at Chievo and wasted the chance to close on leaders Milan. “We have to learn from this defeat,” said Coach Walter Mazzarri.

The Partenopei could've closed the gap at the top of the table to just two points with a win this evening, but fell 2-0 at the Bentegodi.

“It was a bad day and too many players didn't perform the way they usually do,” sighed the tactician.

“We knew that Chievo would make this a very athletic and intense encounter, putting pressure on us to then go on the counter.

Genoa consider Sorrentino bid

Genoa's search for a goalkeeper could end with a bid for Chievo's Stefano Sorrentino.

The club has lost faith in summer signing Eduardo after his latest howler against Udinese.

Genoa have been strongly linked with Federico Marchetti, but a deal has yet to materialise.

The Grifone had been close to bringing in Sorrentino in the summer only to be wowed by Eduardo's performances for Portugal at the World Cup.

Reports in Italy suggest Genoa have inquired about Sorrentino's availability.

Coppa: Miccoli cuts down Chievo

Palermo are through to the Coppa Italia quarter-finals after beating Chievo 1-0, having rattled the woodwork three times.

These two sides had also met in Serie A on Sunday, a 0-0 draw at the Stadio Bentegodi, but they crossed paths again in Sicily this afternoon.

Both sides threatened to break the deadlock with Salvatore Sirigu parrying efforts from Bojan Jokic and Davide Moscardelli.

At the other end, Lorenzo Squizzi kept out Fabrizio Miccoli's free kick and thanked Simone Bentivoglio for a goalline clearance to deny Cesare Bovo.
