Ahead of Saturday's encounter at the San Paolo, we explore the blend of youth and experience behind the in-form Hellas Verona team.
With the introduction to the squad of exciting new talents like Eddie Salcedo (18) and Max Kumbulla (19), the Hellas Verona team exudes youthful exuberance at the moment.
At just 23-years-old, the undoubted star of the show so far has been Sofyan Amrabat.
Up front Mariusz Stepinski (who has yet to score since signing on loan in September) is just 24, while Kumbulla’s defensive partners Amir Rrahmani and Darko Gunter are just 25 years apiece.
For Hellas, experience comes in the form of Portuguese international Miguel Veloso who, at 33 years old, is the captain and veteran of the squad. With over 100 appearances in Serie A, a domestic double with Dynamo Kyiv, and 56 caps for Portugal, the midfield playmaker brings a wealth of experience to Verona’s exciting young team.
Although this his breakthrough season in Serie A, 28-year-old keeper Marco Silvestri has also accumulated a wide range of experience, including in the Italian lower leagues and two seasons with Leeds United in the English Championship.
Saturday's encounter at the San Paolo will be yet another major test for Verona's youngsters. If recent performances are anything to go by, it is a challenge they will meet with vigour.
