Chievo vs Fiorentina
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 27 January 2019
Kick-Off at 11:30 UK / 12:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi (Verona).
Rock-bottomed Chievo will be looking for salvation points in the first game of Sunday’s Serie A schedule when they play host to Fiorentina at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi. Gialloblu, however, have a mountain to climb to reach the safe zone which is currently as many as nine points away. They only claimed their maiden win of the campaign in the previous home fixture and the last game of 2018 when they defeated Frosinone 1-0 in their own backyard.
Nevertheless, the mentioned victory was followed by an expected 3-0 defeat to reigning champions and current leaders Juventus at Allianz Stadium. Can Domenico Di Carlo’s men find the way to catch one of last trains and pick up spoils when they play host to Fiorentina here?
Chievo vs Fiorentina: Head-to-head
The head to head record completely favours the visitors who were the dominant force in the history of outings against Gialloblu.
Viola won 23, drew 3 and lost only 6 of 32 ties with Chievo.
Viola celebrated a demolishing 6-1 victory when teams met each other in late-August at Stadio Artemio Franchi.
Three or more goals were seen in three of past four head to head affairs.
Chievo vs Fiorentina: Prediction
Fiorentina played hit and cold throughout the entire season in this term of Serie A. They sit 10th at the moment, but still have time to challenge European football next year as the top-six finish is only five points away at this stage.
The team led by Stefano Pioli found goals easy to come of late. They bagged five in last two matches against the likes of Torino and Sampdoria. Nevertheless, Viola only won one of ten away games in the league so far. They drew as many as six which is why we ill rather back the draw as the main betting option at the odds of 3.50 here.
We will alternatively take the BTTS bet at sky-high 2.00 odds.
