Wounded Inter worry Pioli

Chievo boss Stefano Pioli is fearing an Inter backlash when the two teams meet this weekend.

The Nerazzurri are feeling the pressure after last Sunday's 1-0 defeat to derby rivals Milan left them six points off the top in what is their worst start to a season post-Calciopoli.

The First Flight of the Donkeys

Ahead of this weekend's clash, Giancarlo Rinaldi goes back to August 2001 when Chievo made their top-flight bow at Fiorentina in spectacular fashion

The Stadio Artemio Franchi in Florence has seen some famous events over the years. David Bowie and Madonna have gigged there, Giancarlo Antognoni almost died on the pitch during a match and it hosted a World Cup quarter-final at Italia '90. Nine years ago, however, it was the runway from which the Flying Donkeys of Chievo Verona first took to the skies.
