Chievo vs AS Roma Betting Tip and Predictions. In the Round 18 in Italian Serie A, Chievo take on AS Roma. Read below betting preview, useful info and predictions for this game.
Chievo stand at the middle of the table and their main goal this season is to avoid relegation. They are doing good job for now, have 8 points more than the first team in the relegation zone and they are not under pressure. They have very good results against AS Roma – in the last 5 home matches against this opponent they lost only once (1-3-1) and they will do their best to stay unbeaten. Good news for them is that they have almost squad available for this game, no injury concerns. Home team have managed to win only one of their last 5 home games. In the previous home match they beat Atalanta and they want to make another positive result against team from the capital city.
AS Roma are one of the candidates for the title, but their primary goal this season is to finish in Top 3 and play in the UEFA Champions League next season. They have already qualified in the next round of Champions League and they will play against Real Madrid in the knockout phase. Their recent performance is not at the high level. In the last 8 matches in all competitions they have managed to win only one game. Things could be even worse for them, because they will be without 3 suspended players for this game, while few players are out due to injury. Difference between AS Roma and Inter (leader on the table) is only 4 points, so it’s too early to predict the new champion, but visitors on this game are one of the main candidate for Scudetto.
