Chievo vs Torino
Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday 30 September 2018
Kick-Off: 14:00 UK,
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi (Verona).
Torino will look to take advantage of bottom-feeders Chievo as they travel to face the floundering Flying Donkeys on Sunday.
Chievo are still bottom of the table after losing to Genoa midweek, which followed another 2-0 loss to Udinese and as a result of their three point deduction, are still sitting on negative points.
Meanwhile, Torino drew midweek and will be hoping to get some points on the board in order to try to revive their Europa League ambitions, which are now starting to look like a pipe dream.
Chievo are already looking set for relegation even at this early juncture. It seems like their luck has finally run out.
After prior seasons in which they were able to coast along without much effort and secure a lower-mid table result, the club’s dodgy accounting practices which they employed to keep themselves in the top flight have caught up with them and now there is a real worry that that, coupled with some bad showings on the pitch could see them sent back to Serie B next season – unless if they can start turning things around.
Torino, meanwhile have struggled for goals lately, but at least they are looking stronger as a defensive unit. With Chievo not impressing in attack, the Flying Donkeys will find it hard to score – as they have only scored in one of their last four fixtures.

Chievo vs Torino: Prediction
With Chievo seeing under 2.5 goals in six of their last seven meetings with Torino across all comps this could be another lower scoring game. However, the Granata should be able to edge this game despite being frustrated midweek against Atalanta. The Flying Donkeys are hardly flying at the moment and Torino will take advantage of their opponents’ bad form to put some points on the board.
