Chievo vs Atalanta
Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday 21 October 2018
Kick-Off: 14:00 UK,
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi (Verona).
A desperate Chievo sacked Lorenzo D’Anna and hired Gian Piero Ventura. It’s an interesting move, as Ventura was the man in charge of the Italian side who failed to qualify for their first World Cup since 1958 so it remains to be seen if they can turn their fortunes around under his guidance.
Meanwhile, Atalanta have been in awful form and a European finish seems well out of their reach. However, given they are taking on Chievo, who don’t even have a positive points total at this point, this game could present a great chance for them to start putting some points in the bank.
Chievo have -1 points after eight games, zero wins and as such are rooted to the bottom of the table. Ventura will have his work cut out for him and his team come into this game having lost their last four games. Safety, at this point will be Chievo’s only objective, but Atalanta are the big favorites here, despite failing to win their last seven games after winning their opening games.
Chievo vs Atalanta: Head-to-head statistics
- Atalanta have lost only one of their last 11 games against Chievo (W6 D4)

- Atalanta have failed to score in 5 of their last 6 matches
Chievo vs Atalanta: Prediction
Chievo have lost four of their last five meetings with Atalanta and have yet to win a game all season. It goes without saying that La Dea, despite failing to win their last seven games are the big favorites to come out on top here and should be able to come back from the international break and earn a much-needed all three points.
