LAST MEETING



November 21, 2010: Chievo 2-1 Inter


The Flying Donkeys soared to an unlikely victory as they punctured the Inter defence twice in Verona. Sergio Pellissier opened the scoring in the 29th minute before Davide Moscardelli doubled the home side's advantage in the second half.

Samuel Eto'o scored a late goal but many will remember the game for the Cameroon striker's headbutt on Chievo defender Bostjan Cesar.

The 30-year-old has gone AWOL for the Nerazzurri in the last two games and needs to pop up and lead the charge if the champions hope to bounce back from consecutive losses with a win over Chievo at San Siro.

The veteran striker leads the team in scoring again this season and will look to pierce a leaky Inter back line. He scored in the reverse fixture in November and will hope for more of the same on Saturday.

Editor's Prediction

Inter are reeling right now after heavy losses to Milan in Serie A and Schalke in the Champions League. The Nerazurri are vulnerable at the moment but should be able to stop the bleeding with a slim win over Chievo at San Siro.
