Our football match prediction:
Chievo failed to spoil Roma’s party at Stadio Olimpico in their last game in 2016, but they sit in the middle of the table ahead of Matchday 19 and nothing else matters. The Mussi Volanti aim to make amends for the 3-1 loss to Roma and they are certainly capable of beating Atalanta in front of home fans. Chievo are after their fifth home win of the season, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Atalanta defeated Empoli in their last league match, with the team giving fans yet another reason to celebration this season. The Orobici have been producing terrific displays in the 2016/2017 Serie A campaign and they are determined to book their place in European competition. However, seeing that Chievo are tough to beat at home, we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils in Sunday’s football match in the “City of Love”.
