Chievo Verona vs. AS Roma / Serie A – The last-ranked Chievo is welcoming the fifth Roma in the second duel of the 23rd round of Serie A.

In the first part of the season in Rome their duel ended with the amazing 2-2.
Chievo Verona vs. AS Roma begins 08.02.2019 at 20:30 CET
Given that they were deprived of three points, it is no surprise that Chievo has been on the last place since the beginning of the championship. They now also have a major backlog for the safe zone, but this team is not surrendering, and they have recently made their first triumph when they defeated Frosinone. After that they expectedly lost from Juventus, but also from Fiorentina when, after a great fight, the team from Florence celebrated with 4-3. In the last round Chievo had a lead as guest over Empoli with 2-0, but the match ended with 2-2. Their experienced striker Pellissier is now injured, so Meggiorini jumps in the team.
Probable lineups Chievo Verona: Sorrentino – Depaoli, Bani, Rossettini, Barba – Kiyine, Diousse, Hetemaj – Giaccherini – Stepinski, Meggiorini
Roma has made three matches without defeat, from which they were eliminated twice in the championship, while they have experienced a real debacle in the Cup. They have lost with 7-1 in the quarterfinals of that competition against Fiorentina. Prior to that, they played 3-3 against Atalanta in the championship, which means that they received ten goals in two duels. In the last round they welcomed Milan in a derby and had to contend with 1-1. Cristante and N'Zonzi have missed that duel because of yellow cards and they are now back, while Lo.Pellegrini cannot play.
Probable lineups AS Roma: Olsen – Karsdorp, Manolas, Fazio, Kolarov – Cristante, N'Zonzi – Florenzi, Zaniolo, El Shaarawy – Dzeko
Chievo Verona vs. AS Roma PICK
Chievo has nothing more to lose and they need to win, even though they are the outsiders in this duel. Roma has shown a lot of defects in their defence and perhaps it proves to be a problem in Verona, but we certainly expect them to be at the top level in attack.
Pick: over 2.5 goals
Odds: 1.72 at bet365 (down to 1.62 can be played)
