Dead-last Chievo Verona host AC Milan to the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi obliged to pick up some points to increase their chances of securing a miraculous Serie A survival.
With just ten points collected after 26 league fixtures, the hosts are rooted deep inside the relegation zone, sitting 12 points adrift of the SA safety. Chievo’s tally of 15 losses and one win is by far the league’s worst although their only success unsurprisingly arrived at home. Winless in their last three SA home meetings (D1, L2), the Flying Donkeys are facing a daunting prospect of clinching first home triumph over AC Milan since 2005. Toothless in the final third and lackadaisical in defense, Domenico Di Carlo’s men share SA’s worst attacking and defensive records. Their tally of 19 goals scored is the joint-worst, while they also hold the joint-weakest defensive record having conceded 51 goals so far.
Meanwhile, the visitors are enjoying a purple patch as they come into this encounter after racking up a four-game SA winning run. The 7-time Champions League winners have taken full advantage of Inter and AS Roma’s failures in the last fixture to take over the third place and get one step closer to returning to the most prestigious club competition after five years of absence. The Rossoneri’s main strength over the past couple of months was their impressive backline that has allowed just two goals in their previous nine outings across all competitions. What’s more, Gennaro Gattuso’s men are unbeaten in their last seven SA road fixtures (W3, D4). In that period, AC Milan have bagged eight goals while conceded three in the process.
