We need to continue the good run of results and Chievo is the best possible opposition for that. They seat deep down in the table and have not won a football game since 2018. As all Serie A teams, they do have some decent players, but also like all bottom-of-the-table teams, they tend to lose all self-belief once they receive a goal, and make stupid mistakes, etc.
We will be missing Rodriguez for this one; other than that, full squad. I'd imagine Laxalt will be a direct replacement.
Otherwise it's a tough one for Gattuso because the team is winning so you don't want to change too much in principle, but then there's the fact that we're playing like a relegation team lately. Maybe we can get away with a win playing like crap again here because Chievo are so bad and we tend to do well there, but really we absolutely need to improve or we'll be trouble.
Some changes are absolutely necessary for this one. Castillejo has to start, likely instead of Suso or just move Suso for once. Something needs to be adjusted on the left side too, because right now the Hakan-Paquetá duo does not look super productive at the moment. Above all, everybody needs to do better and we need to stop getting 11 players into our own third every time we lose possession.
More realistically, pray for Donnarumma and Piatek to save us, Kessié to maintain the decent form, and someone else to step up.
The derby comes right after this one.
