Chievo Verona vs Sassuolo – Serie A.
Stadio Marc Antonio Bentegodi, Verona – 13 February, 17:00.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
Chievo fans felt very relieved after seeing their squad ending very unpleasant series of three consecutive losses to Lazio, Juventus and Inter, conceding 9 goals. They managed to achieve 2 – 1 away victory against Torino last weekend and announce some better days. This Saturday they will be hosting Sassuolo, team which started this season incredibly well but currently their form is rapidly declining, as well as Serie A position. I am expecting very interesting match as both teams have shown great scoring abilities in last couple of weeks. There is no real favorite to claim victory if we are going to judge by odds, as they are almost equal for all three options. First match between them played in Reggio Emilia could be described as semi – exciting as all action happened in the first half. G.Defrel granted the lead for Sassuolo in 3rd minute and final score was set by S.Pepe in 24th.
Many would say that Chievo were more lucky than performing well against Torino last weekend. First Torino’s player Bruno Peres scored unfortunate own goal, and then in the second half conceded unnecessary foul in the box which allowed V.Birsa to score from penalty spot. Chievo are currently on 10th position on Serie A table, but with minimum chances to hope for some European placement. Relegation is also out of question because gap to the red line is 13 points at the moment.
After 1 – 0 stunning victory against Inter Milan, Sassuolo are currently on winless streak for 6 matches in a row. This obviously caused them to slip on the table; at the moment they are 8th team on Serie A standings, being in same situation as Chievo. They will hardly have chance to fight for the top or to be afraid for their elite division status.
