Chievo v Verona Team News

Chievo are having a better time of things than their neighbours this term, sitting in 9th place and unbeaten in 5. Hellas Verona could not muster a win from their first 7, but look in better shape outside of the relegation zone after beating Benevento in the previous round.

The derby returns this season as newly promoted Hellas Verona finished as runners up in Serie B last year. They have had a hard time of it since and the reality of Serie A life is hitting them, having scored 4 goals in 8 games, on average 0.5 per game.

The fans witnessed a feisty affair last time these sides met in February ‘16, in a game that saw 2 red cards, a missed penalty, and 4 goals in a game eventually won 3-1 by Hellas Verona.

This derby tends to bring out the competitive spirit in the players. The last 6 matches between the 2 clubs have produced a total of 30 yellow and 2 red cards - an average of 5 cards a game.
