Torino vs Chievo
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 3 March 2019
Kick-Off at 11:30 UK / 12:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino (Turin).
Torino became candidates for Europa League spots thanks to a he rise in form in February. They head into Sunday’s tie with Chievo unbeaten in five straight league outings. Il Toro won three and drew two in the process. It is a remarkable run if we know the opposition came in the likes of Inter, Napoli and
Atalanta along the way.
Walter Mazzarri’s men are now lock on points with 6th-placed Lazio (who have a game in hand though). They are seven points shy of Milan in fourth place and can potentially even dream of challenging the most elite continental competition with the continuation of such form.
Speaking of it, we would be very surprised not to see Il Toro claiming another victory on Sunday as they play host to the weakest team in the division.
Torino vs Chievo: Head-to-head
The head to head stats also speak in Torino’s favour.
Il Toro lead the tie by seven wins coming into the landmark 30th meeting with Chievo.
Torino won three and drew two of last five clashes with I Gialloblu.
Il Toro were the dominant force in home ties with Chievo (8 wins, 5 draws and just 1 defeat in 14 games).
Torino vs Chievo: Prediction
Chievo are one foot in the second division of Italian football. They sit at the very foot of the ladder being as many as 11 points below the safe zone line. The gap is just enormous with only 13 games left to play.
Also, Chievo’s form is certainly not promising a pleasant day for their fans here. I Gialloblu are winless in last six league affairs (four losses and two draws along). They failed to find the back of the net in last three matches.
This will be the music to the ears of Walter Mazzarri whose men kept five consecutive clean sheets in the competitions. Furthermore, Torino won four in a row at home keeping their net untouched during the run.
