Line-ups: Inter-Verona

Inter take on Serie A surprise package Hellas Verona tonight with Rodrigo Palacio against Luca Toni and Juan Iturbe.

It kicks off at San Siro at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT), click here for a match preview.

Curiously, Hellas are one point in front of Inter in the Serie A table going into this game, despite being newly-promoted over the summer.

Samir Handanovic sits out a ban, so Juan Pablo Carrizo has to take the gloves for the Nerazzurri after a thrilling 3-3 draw with Torino.

Ricky Alvarez returns from injury to support striker Rodrigo Palacio, giving Mateo Kovacic a deeper role. Hugo Campagnaro is again a big loss in defence with Cristian Chivu and Javier Zanetti.

Verona Coach Andrea Mandorlini is a former Inter player and therefore familiar with his San Siro surroundings.

Veteran hitman Toni is helped by two young talents, Juan Manuel Iturbe and Jorginho. Martinho is picked ahead of Gomez Taleb in the trident attack.

Verona are wearing black armbands tonight following the death of defender Rafael Marques’ mother this week.

These sides have not met in Serie A since December 2001, when the Nerazzurri earned a 3-0 victory. Verona are without a single victory at San Siro.
