AC Milan are seen as 4/9 favourites to beat Hellas Verona in the first game under Clarence Seedorf whilst Inter Milan look to stay in the European places by picking up a win against Genoa.
Hellas Verona have proved themselves to be worthy of a spot in the top half of the table but they will need to be at their very best to beat an AC Milan now controlled by former player Clarence Seedorf.

The Dutchman joins Milan at a time where the club’s season looks almost to be over already with the Rossonieri languishing in a surprising 11th spot in the table.
Seedorf has a relatively strong squad to choose from although Sulley Muntari is suspended for the clash whilst Ignazio Abate and Stephan El Shaarawy are the most notable names on the injury list.
One thing that the Dutchman will look to change is Milan’s poor form in Serie A where they have only won 2 out of their last 11 games in the Italian top flight.
Their spot in the top half of the table has seemingly been taken by Serie A newcomers Hellas Verona who have stormed their way up to sixth in the standings and are on the cusp of a possible European spot.
It certainly seems that Hellas are in better shape as well with Jacopo Sala the only player definitely ruled out of the game thanks to some injury problems.
One factor that has helped Verona enjoy such a strong start to life in Serie A is the inclusion of Luca Toni as the veteran striker has been a menace all season long including scoring a brace that helped Hellas beat AC Milan 2-1 on the first day of the season.
In the other main game, Inter Milan will look to better Verona’s result and beat Genoa as the race for the final European placing starts to hot up.
Inter currently occupy the final Europa League spot in fifth place but are level with Verona on points with just goal difference being the deciding factor.
Walter Mazzari’s side have yet to win in 2014 but the return of Fredy Guarin from suspension could be the catalyst that his side needs to end their poor form which has seen them win once in their last seven games.
Their opponents are Genoa who have steadily improved throughout the season and now sit comfortably in tenth spot in the standings ahead of more established names such as AC Milan and Udinese.
The hosts are relatively unplagued by troubles before welcoming Inter to the Stadio Luigi Ferraris with Francesco Matuzalem the only absentee after being suspended for the game.
With all the action set to unfold, it will mean that sides such as Genoa and AC Milan could prove to be unwelcomed roadblocks that could affect whether it’ll be Inter or Verona qualifying for Europe next season.
