Our prediction for this Serie A match:
The Bianconeri Friuliani failed to repeat the amazing performance from their clash against Napoli and were defeated at the hands of Sampdoria (2-0). Even though Udinese have a six-point cushion between them and the dotted line, they need a drastic turn in fortune in order to avoid the battle against relegation. Chievo, on the other hand, are in outstanding form of late, going four matches undefeated, achieving three straight victories. The Flying Donkeys could climb up a place or two in the overall standings until the end of the season, provided they keep up the good work. Rolando Maran’s men have a rather negative record against Dacia Arena outfit, with mere two triumphs in their last sixteen encounters (D7 L7), and they are not as successful on the road of late. A tough match in prospects, but we will back the hosts this time out and predict a narrow win for Luigi De Canio’s side in this football match.
