Roma vs Chievo Verona Prediction 8 May 2016

Tournament: Serie A
Location: Stadio Olimpico
Match date: 05/08/2016 at 11:30

Luciano Spalletti’s side are now just two points behind second Napoli, so they will be highly motivated in the upcoming match, striving to overtake Naples side. We should mention that Roma’s captain, Francesco Totti, had a real effect on team’s performance. He really made a difference several times. On 34th matchday, when Roma had been losing to Torino Totti made a brace at the very end of the game thus winning the match for his club. After that Roma beat their competitors Napoli, as they grinded out 3 points at the end. In their last game, Totti was game-changing factor once again. Roma were trailing till 77’, when Francesco scored an equalizer. On 87’ Stephan El Shaarawy netted a winner.

In terms of position in the standings, this match will be of no use to Chievo side. The visitors are feeling comfortable with their place in the middle of the table being 14 points above the relegation zone. However, this has a side effect, as Chievo won’t be able to climb higher to the eurocups zone. We should outline that Rolando Maran’s team are in solid form now, as they lost only two games (to Napoli and Atalanta) in their last 10 matches in the league. On top of that, Chievo are 9th with 49 points and +1 goal difference.

Clearly, Roma won the majority of their head-to-heads against Chievo. Let’s recall, their first match this season ended in spectacular 3:3 draw. Roma are in great shape and they are fighting for the silver medals, but to succeed they need to win their matches and expect Napoli to make mistake at least once. Chievo in their turn are unlikely to go all out in the game that means almost nothing to them.
