Tip Reasoning

Chievo continue their survival push on Sunday morning, as they host Fiorentina. The visitors come here with an eye on a European place, having drifted to four points shy of seventh place. The sides they’re trying to rival now have Champions League ambitions, leaving la Viola with distance to make up. Despite being a huge side in Italy, Fiorentina are struggling to match the European contenders, so they need to get 2019 up and running with three points in this visit to the league’s bottom side.

However, Chievo come here with some improved form behind them. They’re only bottom of the league thanks to their three-point deduction earlier this season, but now they have turned a corner. They started 2019 with a 3-0 loss away to Juventus, but they last lost back to back games in November. The hosts have started up their survival bid after some awful form at the start of the season and after a dreadful four-game spell under former Italy boss Giampiero Ventura. However,  this Gialloblu side is in a much better position to trouble Fiorentina.

The visitors are fresh from a thrilling game, as they drew 3-3 at home to Sampdoria in their first league game of 2019. They have had issues with seeing games out, and a lack of cutting edge has been a real concern of late. La Viola need to work on that in order to boost their top seven hopes. They’re three games without a victory in the league, but can they end that streak in this visit to Chievo?

While Fiorentina will be seen as favourites, their away form has to be questioned. They’ve failed to win 90% of their matches on their travels this season. Their only win came at AC Milan, when the Rossoneri were mid-injury crisis and were missing crucial parts of their side. Either side of that Milan win they were held by Genoa and Sassuolo, so could they have trouble at Chievo?

Fiorentina and Torino have drawn the most games in Serie A this season (nine each), just behind them are Chievo with eight. Given that, it’s hardly a surprise that we’re backing these two sides to finish level here. Fiorentina have drawn five of their last six games on the road, losing none. They’ve drawn 60% of their trips overall, while Chievo are unbeaten in their last four at home. With that in mind, a draw seems like the best bet here.
