Chievo vs Inter Milan
Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday, 22 April 2018
Kick-Off: 14:00 UK,
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi (Verona).
Chievo will hope to try to take advantage of Inter’s bad away form as they take on the Nerazzurri on Sunday.
Although Inter come into this game having cruised to a 4-0 win over Cagliari, Luciano Spalletti’s side have struggled largely to match these results away from home. They recently lost to Torino (1-0) and failed to get the upper hand against Atalanta (0-0), whilst they missed numerous gilt-edged chances as the “away” side in the recent Derby della Madonnina to finish that match as a draw as well. Furthermore, Inter have won just one away game since December.
To complicate matters, Inter have failed to score in their last three away games. In fact, the last time they managed to net in their travels was when they crushed Sampdoria 5-0, and that was back on March 18th. Overall, it is set to be a very close three-way battle featuring Lazio, Roma, and the Nerazzurri for the last two Champions League spots, and naturally between now and May, every single point will be of the utmost importance.
Meanwhile, it has been a rough campaign for Rolando Maran’s side to say the least. The Flying Donkeys have been hardly flying this term, and whereas in previous campaigns they were quite happy to merely coast along to finishing somewhere in mid-table, this time around, they are actually in danger of the drop. As things stand, the hosts sit in 16th place and are just three points away from the relegation zone.

Chievo vs Inter Milan: Prediction
Chievo have managed to hold both Napoli and Roma to a draw at this ground with a dogged defensive performance. They obviously will try to do the same here and take advantage of Inter’s less than impressive away form as of late. The Nerazzurri could find this game a lot tougher than expected, despite the gulf between the two sides.
