Chievo vs Roma predictions, betting tips and preview for the Friday night Serie A fixture. Roma are not having a good season by their standards and were thumped 7-1 in their last away match – can they get the win here?
This is probably the ideal fixture for Roma off the back of three games without a win. Chievo are bottom of the Serie A table and despite beating second bottom Frosinone recently, they still find themselves 10 points from safety.
Chievo have actually put up some improved performances of late and fought back well from 2-0 down against Fiorentina in their last home fixture. They got back to 2-2 but eventually lost 4-3. That result followed on from the 1-0 win against Frosinone and a respectable draw with Inter Milan. They have only won one match all season and drawn six but on home soil they do tend to get on the scoresheet and have done so in their last five.
Roma were embarrassed by Fiorentina in their recent Coppa Italia match and Edin Dzeko hit the headlines for being accused of spitting at the referee. That match followed a 3-3 draw with Atalanta and they were also held to a 1-1 draw by AC Milan in Serie A at the weekend – spoiling our bet of the day tip in the process! Despite being away from home here, we’re betting on a Roma victory for our Chievo vs Roma predictions, but are expecting Chievo to get on the scoresheet. Roma win and BTTS is 9/4 at 888Sport.
Edin Dzeko is the obvious favourite in the anytime goalscorer odds here, but it is El Shaarawy who is the Roma top goalscorer in Serie A this season. The Italian has got seven goals so far and he’s found the net in two of his last three starts. We’d prefer to take the 9/4 about him scoring that the rather skinny looking 4/5 for Dzeko, who has only scored four league goals in 18 games this season. Mariusz Stepinski is the Chievo top scorer in Serie A and he’s a 10/3 shot to score v Roma.
Even though they jhaven’t had the best run of results of late, Roma have been scoring goals. They got three against Atalanta, three against Torino and four against Virtus Entella in the Coppa Italia. Given where Chievo are in the league and taking into account the fact they have conceded eight goals in their last three matches, we’re going for a 3-1 Roma win to complete our Chievo vs Roma predictions for this week.
