Chievo vs Hellas Verona
2017/18 Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday, 22 October 2017
Kick-Off: 11:30 UK,
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi (Verona).
The Verona derby will be the opener for Sunday’s fixtures, and Chievo will be seeking to pick up all three points against their newly promoted cross-town rivals. Meanwhile Hellas Verona will be desperate for some much needed points after an awful start to the season. They finally earned a win after a scrappy win against debutants Benevento on Monday, and will be aiming to build on that in the first Derby della Scala of the season.
Verona were not impressive at all against Benevento, especially considering that they their opponents had 10 men and have lost all their matches. 1-0 was the result and it took them until the second half to break down the Benevento wall.
Meanwhile, Chievo have lost two games so far and have managed to score in all of their home matches. They have also conceded in all their home matches, but still have managed to stay ahead of AC Milan. Then again, the Flying Donkeys aren’t looking to qualify for Europe, unlike the Rossoneri. They’re just looking to secure a mid-table safe finish, and they are certainly on their way after a solid start.
With three draws and two wins, Rolando Maran’s men are unbeaten in their last five and will certainly be fancying their chances to take advantage of Verona’s bad form to pick up an additional three points.
Chievo vs Verona: Head-to-head statistics
- Chievo are undefeated in their last 5 matches
- Verona have failed to win their last 7 away matches
Chievo vs Verona: Prediction
Chievo have seen both teams score in their last seven home matches at home. In addition, the Flying Donkeys have managed only two clean sheets in their last 18 matches. Whilst they have also only won just one of their last five against Verona, they have drawn three of their last five, so Chievo should be able to get at least a point.
