Match Thread: Gattuso looks to keep league form rolling at home against Chievo Verona

The Rossoneri should lock up three points comfortably against a struggling Chievo side

It’s fair to say every match from here on out is pivotal in deciding the fate of the 2018 campaign. Today is no exception, even at home against an arguable weaker side in Chievo Verona. Certainly they’re not a team to sleep on, but one should expect a comfortable and solid shift of work, given what both teams are currently fighting for.

Gennaro Gattuso will have AC Milan trying to bounce back from their woeful, if not ref-induced, loss in the Europa League this past week. The message to his players and staff will surely be to focus on the league for here on out, and good things could happen.

Add into the mix that Chievo Verona haven’t won away since September, and have struggled mightily to find the back of the net in all competitions, anything less than a comfortable three points will draw criticism, particularly with a rumored new contract on the line for Rino.

Milan will see out the day 3-0, with goals from Patrick Cutrone (2), and Hakan.
