Chievo vs Roma – Serie A: On the match that will open this Sunday of Serie A’s 16th round matches
The local side Chievo will meet the visiting side Roma, in Verona at the Marc’Antonio Bentegodi stadium, with the hosts having 20 points and sitting in 12th place while the visitors have 34 points and are in 4th place of the league table,
with the two teams being separated by a considerable margin going into this match.
This will be the first encounter between the two teams this season.
The local side comes into this match making a season within their ambitions so far, sitting on the middle of the league table of the Italian Serie A and with a considerable advantage over the relegation zone (10 points),
which allows the team from Verona to breathe peacefully and approach their matches without that extra pressure.
The team, still, has been getting either excellent results (like the home draw against Napoli) or terrible results (suffering heavy losses against Milan, Inter or Sampdoria, for example).
The team comes into this match with 2 consecutive losses, with one of those losses knocking them out of Coppa Italia.
As for the Romanian team, they come into this match on a good moment of form, both internally and in Europe, sitting close to the top 3 of the Serie A
(being able to reach it in case they are also able to win the game they are behind), getting therefore closer to Inter, Napoli and Juventus.
The team has been very consistent defensively, being the best defence of the competition, along with Juventus, having only conceded goals in 6 out of the 16 matches they played so far.
The team is on a good moment of form, winning all but two matches since late October.
Chievo vs Roma– Betting Tip and Prediction:
Against an opponent normally tough to face at their own stadium (they only lost to Lazio and Milan so far),
I believe we will have a close match and with the defences being superior to the attacks, even because namely the visitors are very competent on the defensive point of view. This way, I expect an under in this encounter.
|Under 2.5 goals||
