ChievoVerona vs Palermo Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

ChievoVerona and Palermo will be facing each other at the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi on Sunday afternoon, with both sides looking to build on their recent victories in the Serie A. ChievoVerona fought back from one-goal down to secure a 1-2 away victory at Genoa last weekend thanks to goals from Samuel Bastien and Valter Birsa. Palermo, on the other hand, managed an unexpected 2-0 home win over Fiorentina thanks to goals from Alessandro Diamanti and Haitam Aleesami.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Although both sides have struggled for consistency throughout this Serie A campaign, Palermo are aware that a defeat here will send them into the Serie B. The bad news is that Palermo are winless in their last seven visits to the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi, scoring just two goals in the process. Despite this negative record, I’m backing Palermo to show some fighting spirit here and to secure at least a draw.

ChievoVerona Preview

ChievoVerona’s five-game losing streak in the Serie A ended last weekend as they managed a hard-fought 1-2 victory on the road at Genoa. Prior to this win, Chievo have conceded at least two goals in each of their previous five league games. Actually, their sloppy defence has been the main reason for their struggle throughout the season as they hold one of the worst defensive records in the division, conceding 53 goals in 34 league games. This leaves the Flying Donkeys only in 13th spot in the Serie A table tied on 41 points with the 12th-placed Cagliari, 16 points clear of the drop zone. Their recent home form has been a complete mixed bag with five defeats, two wins and one draw in their last eight home league fixtures, conceding at least two goals in five of these. However, Chievo should feel confident ahead of this clash as they are undefeated in the last seven home meetings with Palermo in the Serie A, keeping a clean sheet in five of these. Ilija Nestorovski is Chievo’s topscorer with ten goals under his belt, but the 27-year-old striker got injured last time out, and he is a doubt ahead of this clash.

Riccardo Meggiorini is missing through injury, while Dario Dainelli and Perparim Hetemaj are both doubts. In addition, Massimo Gobbi and Fabio Depaoli are both missing through suspension.

Palermo Preview

On the other hand, Palermo were on an eleven-game winless streak in the Serie A prior to their 2-0 home victory over Fiorentina last weekend. Despite the win, the Rosanero are still second from the bottom in the standings with 19 points to their name after 34 rounds, already ten points behind safety. This means that Palermo need to collect at least ten points from the remaining four league fixtures in order to have a chance to secure their Serie A status. The Rosanero have been awful at both ends of the field throughout the season, but their biggest problems have been at the back. Palermo have conceded 73 goals in 34 league games, which is the second worst defensive record in the division. Their away form has also been an issue, as they have only collected ten points from their 17 league trips. Furthermore, they are currently on a five-game losing streak on the road in the Serie A, conceding at least three goals in each of these. Head-to-head, Palermo have lost three of their last four meetings with ChievoVerona, and have failed to score in two of these.
