Due to a mostly healthy group of players, there is just a single fitness issue for the Cremonese manager Fabio Pecchia to be concerned with. Luca Coccolo (Metatarsal bone bruise) misses out for this game.
Cremonese are certainly able to put a goal past this Chievo Verona outfit, but it is unlikely to be as many as the goals that they could concede.
