Venue: Stadio Marc’ Antonio Bentegodi

 

It’s going to be a tough survival battle between relegation prone, Chievo and Torino. Both squads continue to struggle in the bottom part of the league table and the upcoming match is a great opportunity for them to veer away from the dreaded zone.

 

The story so far

Chievo

Although undefeated in its last 6 matches, Chievo’s recent performance was not enough to propel its rank in the top-flight league. As a matter of fact, it desperately hangs on to the 16th spot and hopes that the next match gives them the advantage needed to sustain their Serie A status.

 

Such scenario proves to be a big challenge to Rolando Maran, who has been recently appointed to manage the hapless squad.

 

Torino

Torino certainly takes the role of the online betting favorite. Positioned at the 14th spot of the table, the club has defeated Chievo in all of its encounters. Their upcoming face-off does not guarantee that they’ll get the three points, considering the fact that Chievo might employ a more creative approach. However, looking into a more realistic possibility, it is evident that Torino has the edge over their opponent. Its recent win against the top-performing Genoa should inspire the whole squad in snatching the said victory. And besides, they need to make a grand comeback after a temporary show of lackluster performance in their previous matches.

 

Prediction

Chievo 0-2 Torino
