Atalanta vs Chievo
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 17th March 2019
Kick-off at 14.00 UK/ 15.00 CET
Venue: Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia (Bergamo).
Chievo is already a sure-shot to get relegated at the end of the season. All season, they have recorded just a single win from 27 league games. 26 winless matches out of 27. That’s some major disaster in waiting to happen. They have secured just 10 points so far and is below the relegation cut-off by 12 points.
Atalanta is furiously chasing the last available European spot, currently in possession of Torino. The latter also has an easier fixture this weekend, and Atalanta has no choice but to take the three points from this fixture somehow. In terms of goal-scoring, the team is just below Juventus, with 56 goals so far in the Serie A, and is obviously the second-best in Italy.

Atalanta vs Chievo Prediction
In simple words – Chievo is the worst team in the competition, and with relegation already a sure possibility, they are the least motivated bunch of players in the league. On top of all that, they are on the road against a team fighting desperately for the last European spot. Take a guess, who might win this tie.
In h2h ties, Atalanta has recorded five wins in the last six meetings, and at this venue, they kept clean sheets in the last three ties. Also, importantly, Chievo is winless in their last 15 away ties in succession.
And finally, since Torino, whose spot in the league table Atalanta are after, has got an easier tie this weekend, against Bologna, the hosts have no option but to go in for the kill.
Expect them to get on top of things right away, and get the three points in style.
