Chievo vs AS Roma - 08/02/2019 Preview

Chievo will face AS Roma at Marc’Antonio Bentegodi Stadium at Italian Serie A 23th Round. Chievo against AS Roma is the match with big interest after their previous matches at Italian Serie A. Review our thoughts on this match here below.

 

Chievo

Chievo Verona having a very tough season and most likely they will leave the Serie A at the end of the season. Chievo has failed to win 21 of their 22 last matches in Serie A. Home team won only one game against Frosinone last week and now has 9 points, that is 9 points from being away from relegation zone. In the last two league matches, Chievo scored 5 goals against Empoli and Fiorentina.

Some of the main team players have left to other clubs on loan because of a bad mood in the team and club in total. The team with each round is further and further from maintaining the position and the highest Italian league. There is no special investment from the board of the club.

This season The Yellow and Blues are showing great performance at coming back from the losing positions, stealing the ball from the opposition and playing attacking down the right. However, the team is facing troubles at defending set pieces, defending counter-attacks, finishing scoring chances and keeping possession of the ball.

 

AS Roma

AS Roma this season is a very unpredictable team. This year, they still need to show themselves well in the Champions League, although they have already finished second in the group and have shown a strong character. Now they are at the 6th position of Serie A, however, they are struggling at playing away matches. There are 4 teams with only one point difference from 4th to 7th position.

The Yellow and Reds have excellent players who can play beautiful football, score goals and control the game. Probably D. Perotti and C. Under will miss this the match due to injuries, however, there are great footballers who can replace them.

Roma is very strong at scoring from direct free kicks, attacking set pieces and aerial duels. Most likely they will play possessional football, attack through the middle and control the game in the opposition’s half. However, they are facing troubles at protecting the lead, defending against attacks down the wings and stopping opponents from creating chances.

 

H2H

In the last two seasons, teams met 3 times. Roma won only once, and two times teams played a draw. Most interesting that Chievo took 1 point at the beginning of the season from Roma in their Stadium.
