Cagliari vs. Chievo Verona

Match Date: 11 May 2014 (local time)

Venue:  Stadio San Ella


Aside from Catania, Cagliari is also one of the clubs that made an impression last weekend. The squad halted Parma’s ambitions of appearing in the Europa League through a narrow victory. The club is set to meet Chievo Verona, which is also seeking for ways to retain its Serie A status.


Cagliari’s head honcho, Ivo Pulga did not only praise his boys, but also gave them an assurance that the said win shall ensure their continuous appearance in Italy’s top-flight league. He also stressed that it will be too hard to defeat the club should they present the same performance at San Ella. But they have to be very careful when they meet Chievo as the latter has a history of dominating their previous encounters. In terms of its team form, Cagliari’s current status is an impressive, having been undefeated in 4 of its last 6 matches.


On the other hand, Chievo Verona is at risk of leaving Serie A. The club just suffered its 3rd consecutive defeat in its last 6 matches. Torino was the most recent club, which inflicted a disappointing loss to Chievo.


Desperately clinging on the table’s 16th spot, the Flying Donkeys is compelled to work on their away form. They are having troubles with their away performance lately. Six (6) of their last 7 matches resulted in a defeat. Moreover, they have also conceded an average of 2 goals in the away encounters that they lost. Survival is still very much possible for Chievo. But they have to beat the online betting favorite, Cagliari first.


Prediction: Cagliari
