Chievo vs Torino by JerryDrake
Torino running fast
Undefeated since 5 games where they won 4, Torino suffered their last defeat against Roma more than one month ago. With the help of the goals scored by Cerci, Immobile and El Kaddouri now Torino are very close to the Europa League spot: 6th place with 52 points together with Lazio and Verona. But Lazio and Verona will have to play one against the other on Monday. Serie A top scorer Ciro Immobile (21 goals) has a double motivation: to reach the Europa League and convince Prandelli for the World Cup.
Head to head with Chievo
Torino won twice in Verona in 1998 and 1999 when both teams were playing in Serie B. In Serie A they met 7 times in Verona and it was Chievo to win 4 and draw 3 while Torino never won a single one with Chievo in Serie A. This time it could be the right time as Torino are playing well and are motivated. Chievo lost already 10 at home (only 2 less than Sassuolo) while Torino are not the best team on the road but they were strong against weaker teams as they won in Bologna, Reggio Emilia (against Sassuolo), Verona (against Hellas Verona) and Catania.
Chievo still risking to relegate
Even with two points advantage over Bologna and Sassuolo, Chievo are not safe from relegation. For this game coach Corini will miss two defenders Cesar and Frey, both suspended together with Hetemaj. Canini and Dramé will replace the defenders while Guana will take the place of Hetemaj. Paloschi is available again and it will be Obinna to leave the first eleven. Torino will play with the same line-up which defeated Udinese.
I take Torino with great confidence as Torino have achieved great results in the last weeks and seem to be every day more and more motivated and self-confident. Correct score: 1-3
