SCOTT PETERSON - Saturday, April 28, 2012
Michael Bradley and the Flying Donkeys of Chievo Verona are back in action in the Serie A on Saturday traveling to Cagliari to do battle with the Sardinians.

It was a short week for Bradley and co. after losing to Atalanta Bergamo in a make-up match on Tuesday, and Mimmo Di Carlo will be faced with some interesting decisions regarding his starting 11.

Di Carlo will be forced to swap out both his central defenders, with regulars Marco Andreoli and Bostjan Cesar out due to injury and suspension respectively. Dario Danielli and Marco Acerbi are set to line up in their stead.

In midfield, Luca Rigoni will more than likely return to the bench as his match performance and effort in practice have left much to be desired of late. One of either Finn Perparim Hetemaj or Peruvian Rinaldo Cruzado is tapped to make the starting 11.

Calgiari comes into the match with little in the way of injury concerns, but are looking over their collective shoulder at the drop zone, which is lurking just five points below. Of late their performances have been hit or miss. On Wednesday, they blew out Catania by three goals, just one game after losing by the same margin to Parma.

If Chievo emerges victorious, they could move into an impressive eighth place. Kickoff is set for Saturday at 6 p.m. local time in the Stadio di Sant'Elia.
