Updated: November 14, 2013
Hellas Verona FC v AC Milan - Serie A

Match Date: 23 November 2013

Match Venue: Stadio Marc`Antonio Bentegodi


Hellas Verona

After winning over Sampdoria and Cagliari, Hellas Verona scored their fourth defeat this season when Genoa pounded them in a 2-0 home victory. The loss marks the side’s inability to defend against long shots and in stopping opponents from creating opportunities. Genoa’s Portanova and Kucka were both successful at intruding Verona’s defense, finding the net, and scoring for their team. Andrea Mandorlini lost sight of the chances and failed to convert any opportunity.


Fortunately, Gialloblu still have more wins than losses to brag about. Earning 22 points from seven victories and one draw, the side are currently ranked at number six—a position reliable enough to keep them in the tournament’s brighter spots.


Chievo Verona

While they managed to halt their unpleasant run in the season with draws from Bologna and Milan, Chievo are still short of goals to turn their negative-digit goal difference around. The oceans for the squad’s Serie A journey is gradually becoming tranquil, but they must still prepare for future hostilities in order to truly post positive results.


As of latest tally, Andrea Mandorlini’s men are still pinned in the league table’s lowest spot, which they have been occupying for a fourth consecutive week now. Their ability to finish scoring chances and keep possession of the ball remain defective, but there is a good promise in their well-to-do aptitude to defend set pieces.


Football betting tip: This Derby della Scala seems less intriguing than some other Serie A derbies. The reason is simple: this battle is telling obvious winners. Going for 1.80 or 2.147 on this match in favor of Hellas Verona will bring in good fortunes.
