Things have not been going all that great for AC Milan, and it does not seems as if they are going to get better anytime soon. From 11 Serie A matches, the Rossoneri have taken only 12 points from a potential 33, leaving them 11th in the league table.
With only one win in their last five Serie A matches, Allegri's side could really use the full three points against Chievo.
Injuries have not made things much easier for the Italian manager, but their biggest problem has been keeping the ball out of their own goal. They have conceded 19 goals in 11 matches, with 13 of those goals coming away from the San Siro.
Knowing that he has to sort things out, coming off a mid-week loss against Barcelona at the Nou Camp, Allegri is not taking for granted the fact that Chievo is last in Serie A.
"We've a fight ahead of us on Sunday and it'll be a different game," Allegri told the club's official website. "I'm not worried, I'm eager to win a game like the players are, we're on the back of two losses in Europe and in the league. We need everyone, all the players are required."
What is required for Milan is a quick turnaround, and that has led Barbara Berlusconi to come out and state her discontent with the current situation with the club.
The former Italian Prime Ministers daughter believes that Adriano Galliani should leave the club, along with Allegri. It has been rumored that Filippo Inzaghi, Paolo Maldini or even Shevchenko could fill the void, but nothing has really materialized. Another poor result on Sunday could see some action taken at the San Siro.
Chievo will know that if there has ever been a chance to defeat Milan, it is this weekend.
Although they only have one victory on the season, it came at home. But just like Milan, Chievo has had some trouble keeping opponents from scoring. They have conceded 18 goals in 11 matches, and have only scored seven.
Fresh off a draw away to Bologna and a 1-0 defeat to league leaders AS Roma, Chievo could be in prime position to steal points from the Rossoneri.
