Chievo vs Cagliari
Italy – Serie A
Date: Friday, 29th March 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi (Verona).
Chievo has almost locked in their elimination from Serie A and is placed dead-last in the league table. They have posted just 11 points on the board so far, and on top of that, three points were deducted by the Federation. Safety is at least 14 points away, and with just ten rounds remaining, even hardcore fans don’t expect them to get out of this pit.
Cagliari will view this game as a chance to secure their future in the league. They are already in a comfortable position, with a surplus of six points over the cut-off line, and a total of six teams below them actively trying to avoid the boot.

Chievo vs Cagliari Prediction
Chievo has no will left to fight for. As far as they are concerned, they are out of this competition. The team has posted just 11 points on the board so far, and that too from 28 games. To continue in the Serie A, they have to overcome a deficit of 14 points from the next 10 matches. Suffice it to say, the team should start preparing for life in Serie B.
For Cagliari, this will be one of the easiest fixtures in their remaining match-days, and the squad would dearly love to ensure their safety by taking advantage of games such as these. They will sweat it out on the pitch to take back at least a point, and with Chievo having recorded just a single win from their 28 attempts, chances for the visitors to avoid a loss is sky-high.
Going on, since Cagliari has found it hard to perform well in front of the goal the last few games, chances for this tie to become a goal-fest is extremely low. The team could record just nine goals in their last 12 games.
Expect the guests to take at least one point this Friday, and the game to have not more than two goals in total.
