SPAL vs Chievo Prediction
The visitors are easily the worst team in the league, and probably in the top 5 leagues also. More than one-third of the season is over, and all the team could manage so far was just three points. Hearts and hopes of the players, as well as the fans, broke when the league deducted three points from their already dwindling league stats.
Chievo is winless in their last 13 matches in a row. On the road, they are winless in their last nine games. From their last 22 ties away from home, the team could manage just two wins.
Spal was unbeaten in four of their last eight fixtures. At home, they are even more of a formidable opponent. The team registered ten unbeaten matches from their last 13 attempts and won eight of them.
100% of official h2h matches at this stadium had none or only one of the teams on the scoresheet. Both teams are notorious, especially this season, for being very wasteful in front of the goal.
