Chievo vs Sassuolo
Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday 4 November 2018
Kick-Off: 14:00 UK,
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi (Verona).
Sassuolo have struggled as of late, and have failed to win their last four games. The Neroverdi will hope to take advantage of Chievo’s bad form as they aim to get back on track as they head to Verona on Sunday. Meanwhile, the Flying Donkeys remain stuck to the bottom of the table with zero wins after ten games, and things don’t seem to be getting any better for them just yet.
Even Frosinone have finally won a game after beating SPAL 3-0 last round. Chievo were fortunate not to be punished more harshly for fudging their books, but it hasn’t made much difference and they still sit on -1 point heading into matchday 11.
Sassuolo will want to take this chance. They did have a strong start to the season, but have picked up just four points from their last four games and have slid down the standings as a result. That being said, with how congested things are in the middle of the table, they are actually within touching distance of a Europa League spot and are only a few points away from fourth-placed AC Milan, so a win here could really see them jump up a few spots in the table.
Chievo fired Lorenzo D’Anna and hired none other than Gian Piero Ventura in a desperate bid to turn things around, but the fact that they hired Ventura shows how indeed desperate the club are at this point. Things haven’t improved so far under his tenure but with Sassuolo being out of form, could they get some respite on Sunday?

Chievo vs Sassuolo: Prediction
Chievo took on an Atalanta side who had failed to win their last nine games in their last home game and they lost 5-1 as La Dea took out their frustration on the Flying Donkeys. However, Sassuolo have looked out of sorts lately, and this just may prove to be the break Chievo have been really looking for. After all, they just can’t possibly lose every single game this season. Frosinone got their break last round. Could this be the chance Chievo have been looking for?
