The home side come into the clash on the back of a thrilling 3-3 draw away to Genoa last Saturday. Nikola Kalinic scored an injury time equalizer to share the points after Genoa had scored three goals in the last 13 minutes to take a 3-2 lead.
Spezia suffered a 2-1 defeat to AC Milan on home turf. Daniel Maldini and Brahim Diaz scored second-half goals on either side of Daniele Verde's strike to give the Rossoneri all three points.
That loss left I Aquilotti in 17th place, just above the relegation zone on goals scored. Verona are one point better off in the 14th spot, making this a relegation six-pointer.
