Our football match prediction:
Chievo are on a four-match losing run in the Serie A and they have been struggling at the back of late. The Mussi Volanti do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment, but the fact that their next rivals Torino struggle on the travels is giving home fans a reason for optimism ahead of Sunday’s football match. Chievo sit in 13th place in the standings at the moment, but they are 17 points clear of the relegation zone, meaning that their top flight status is not in danger. Torino, on other hand, are undefeated in previous four league fixtures and they failed to beat relegation-strugglers Crotone in their last league match. Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men are stuck in the middle of the Serie A standings and the lack of motivation could prove to be a big problem for the team in the season finale. Taking everything into account, both teams would be happy with one point from the Stadio Marc’ Antonio Bentegodi clash and we predict that they will share the spoils this time out.
