Chievo is a team who, like every year, have to fight for avoid the relegation and with Maran they are in a good period also this year. Actually they have 18 points, so a decent margin on the relegation zone but in last period they aren’t so brilliant with 1 win (against Cagliari, at home, for 1-0) and 3L against Crotone (2-0 in away), Juventus (1-2 at home) and Torino (2-1 in away).
The match against Juventus was a good match for them, very battled. And especially the last L in away against Torino was not deserved because the ref denied two clear penalties for Chievo and give to Torino the first goal in clear offside, so they wasn’t so bad at all.
For today they only player out will be Cacciatore who will be replaced by Frey.
Genoa is a decent team too who have 19 points in table (Chievo is at 18) and arrive to this match after the huge home win over Juventus at home for 3-1. They played an amazing match with a lot of intensity and pressure over Juventus and maybe it could be a little problem (in terms of condition) for today.
They will have out Orban and Pavoletti but the rest of the lineup will be the usual one. Genoa is 1-1-2 in last 4 games and in away they are 2-0-4 with 3L in a row against Sampdoria (2-1), Atalanta (3-0) and Lazio (3-1).
For me this will be a balanced one with a good possibility to end with a draw but i want to take my shot on handicap line.
Chievo +0 @1,81 (0-0)
