Milan travel to Verona to take on Chievo in a match that Milan should easily win if they are to have any claim towards guaranteeing themselves a Champions League place, as Chievo have been stapled to the bottom of the Serie A table all season, with a squad that doesn’t appear to be adequate for Serie A. Chievo was also penalized with a points deduction for financial shenanigans at the start of the season, meaning that this was always going to be a tough season for them, but they haven’t been able to overcome that challenge and look certain for the drop.
The biggest news for the Milan lineup is the return of Mattia Caldara to the matchday squad, although he probably won’t start the match. Caldara was one of the higher profile moves in Serie A last season, as he came from Juventus in the deal that sent Leonardo Bonucci back to Turin after spending the year on loan at Atalanta.

It’s rumored that Hakan Calhanoglu might miss the match, as his baby was born this week, and in his place Samu Castillejo will get the start. It’s also been said that Lucas Biglia, Diego Laxalt, and Andrea Conti will all get a chance to start as Gennaro Gattuso looks to rest some of his starters against the bottom team in the league.
Do you think the reported changes will work? Or do you think Gattuso is playing with fire by fixing a lineup that isn’t broken? Let us know in the comments.
