All Chievo Verona v Pescara game predictions, stats and user poll are shown below - as well as the best betting odds.
Chievo Verona are hoping to win again after their last result, the 0-1 Serie B triumph versus Benevento.
In that game, Chievo Verona had 35% possession and 8 attempts on goal with 2 on target. The scorer for Chievo Verona was Luca Garritano (10'). Benevento had 21 attempts at goal with 6 of them on target.
It has not been often in recent times that Chievo Verona have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that Mussi Volanti have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 7 goals in the process.
Going into this contest, Chievo Verona haven't been defeated in their previous 3 league matches at home.
Pescara will come into the game following on from a 1-0 Serie B win with the downing of Livorno in their last game.
In that match, Pescara managed 55% possession and 19 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. The scorer for Pescara was Riccardo Maniero (52'). At the other end, Livorno got 6 shots at goal with 1 of them on target.
The stats tell the story, and Pescara have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 6 goals in total. Defensively, Delfini can certainly do much better. Such a trend isn’t assured to be carried forward into this game, though.
Ahead of this meeting, Pescara have not won away from home in their last 8 matches in the league. A poor run.

Team News: Chievo Verona
Chievo Verona boss Alfredo Aglietti does not have any fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this game with a completely healthy group ready to go.
Team News: Pescara
Thanks to a largely healthy squad, there is just the one fitness issue for the Pescara boss Andrea Sottil to be concerned with. Marco Tumminello (Sideband injury) won’t be in action. Franck Kanouté cannot play in this game through suspension.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Pescara would be disappointed if they were not to find the back of the net against this Chievo Verona team, but that probably won’t quite be as many as they will have scored against them.
Our tip is for a very close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Chievo Verona when all is said and done. Should be a good one.
