Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Roma will be aiming to make amends to a 2-1 loss to Milan when they take on Chievo at their Stadio Olimpico. The Romans were more than unfortunate not to grab something from the Milan clash as the Rossoneri scored the winner in the stoppage time, but the Giallorossi should now focus on Sunday’s match against Chievo. It is well known that Roma have turned their Stadio Olimpico into a real fortress and seeing that the Mussi Volanti experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 6-1 loss to Fiorentina, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. In their last meeting in the “eternal city” Roma crushed Chievo 4-1 and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. As always, Bosnia international Edin Dzeko will lead the line for the capital club.
