Inter will be reunited with Rosario Abisso on Sunday when he takes charge of their match against Hellas Verona.

The Nerazzurri suffered an incredible injustice at Abisso’s hands back in 2019 when he refereed a dramatic 3-3 draw away at Fiorentina.

Abisso awarded a bizarre stoppage-time penalty for a non-existent handball from Danilo D’Ambrosio, despite having gone over to check the incident again with his pitch-side VAR monitor.

He was also forced to correct two further incorrect calls by his VAR assistant earlier in the match, and has continued to offer unreliable performances this season.

Abisso was heavily criticised by Torino back in December when he oversaw their 3-1 defeat at Roma, while he also caused controversy during Lazio’s win over Fiorentina in January after a debatable penalty call.

He most recently oversaw Juventus’ defeat at home to Benevento before the March international break, when he awarded the Bianconeri a penalty for handball before overturning it after a VAR review.

Inter will be hoping Abisso is back on better form this weekend when they host Hellas Verona at San Siro, looking to take another step towards the Serie A title.

Luigi Nasca will be on VAR duties while Alessandro Prontera will act as fourth official.
