Verona vs Chievo Prediction & Betting tips
In the northern Italian city of Verona, the match between Hellas and Chievo takes place on Saturday evening. The Derby della Scala takes place for the tenth time in the top league. So far, Chievo is just leading the statistics (four wins Chievo, two draws, three wins Hellas). Chievo is also easy to favor in today’s game. The team from the small district of Chievo is in 15th place with 25 points. This gives them four points to a relegation zone advantage. Hellas Verona is also in the middle of relegation battle. With 19 points Hellas occupies the second to last place. However, they only divide four points from saving 17th place. Thus, in today’s game, it’s about the important three points in the basement duel on the one hand, and the supremacy in the city on the other hand. The betting odds are balanced, so we opted for a bet with the tip: both teams decide.
Hellas Verona won the last home game surprisingly 2-1 against Torino. In this match, especially the midfielder Valoti convinced. The 24-year-old Italian will probably miss Hellas for today’s derby. Besides him, the use of five other players is not sure. As a result, Pecchia – the coach for almost two years – will only be able to draw on a limited number of players. Especially in the offensive, the team has great trouble. Only 24 hits cheered the fans so far this season. This is one of the biggest problems quickly found. Even worse is the defensive, already conceded 51 goals conceded Hellas. Thus, the northern Italians get close to two goals per game. Also in today’s game, this trend will continue. In the Derby della Scala Hellas Verona has so far only conceded once without conceding!
The glorious times of the club are already over. Hellas is – as every year – currently in the middle of relegation battle. This season could be very close with the league. Currently, the team is in second-to-last place with only 19 points. Nevertheless, everything is still possible in the remaining twelve rounds, because the gap to 17th place is just four points.
Chievo Verona is the younger and smaller club of the city. Only in 1929 was the club of football fans from the district Chievo – which has only about 3,000 inhabitants – founded. After long years in deep and insignificant leagues succeeded in 2001, the first ascent of the club’s history in the Serie A. After six years of trouble, Chievo no longer held the class and returned to Serie B. This descent was used to completely transform the club. Sergio Pellissier took over the captain’s armband and led the team to the Serie B title and thus the direct re-emergence was realized. Since then Chievo fights each year in the top league for relegation. Also in this season dominated the relegation battle in Verona. After all, the lead is currently four points to a relegation place. Especially abroad Chievo disappoints: Only two games have been won by the Northern Italians in foreign stadiums so far. It has been particularly bitter in the last five games. Only against Lazio scored a goal Chievo, nevertheless, also resulted in this game a defeat. In today’s game Chievo is declared as an away team, but also carry out the footballers of Chievo their home games at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.
Compared to the city rivals Chievo has a similarly weak offensive. After all, they make a real scorer with Roberto Inglese. The Italian already scored eight goals and contributed about one third of all goals. It is questionable whether the top scorer in today’s Derby will run up. In addition to him, former Italian internationals Alessandro Gamberini and Emanuele Giaccherini may miss due to injury.
