Chievo AC Milan, Tues 19:45
The Serie A title race was blasted wide open once again over the weekend when AC Milan fell subject to pressure on home soil, leaving Juventus free to reclaim their spot at the summit of the league, as Bet365 offer long odds and a live stream on tonight’s Serie A action.
Fiorentina’s hopes of top flight survival were substantially improved by their weekend victory at the San Siro but it came at the expense of the Milan giants, who now face Chievo in a bid to retain the Italian league title.
Masimiliano Allegri’s side may have the second best form in Serie A but are now without a win in their last four outings across all competitions and need to reverse their luck soon if they are to hold onto the domestic trophy.
Chievo are in a similar vein of form having lost just once in their last eight fixtures and will be hoping to heap further misery upon AC by dishing out a shock victory on Tuesday.
Domenico Di Carlo’s side are unbeaten in their last four outings, winning their last two against Catania and Fiorentina.
The Verona outfit have made quite the surge over the last two months, making themselves realistic contenders for a top half finish, finding themselves just three points off Inter Milan in seventh.
Chievo’s main problem this season has been finding the back of the net and while the defensive aspect of their game looks sturdy, goals have proven hard to come by at the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.
The Mussi Volanti have the third worst home attack in Serie A, scoring a lowly average of just one goal per game when playing at their home ground.
The Rossoneri have been significantly more successful away from home and are Serie A’s most threatening side when away from home; a record they be hoping to maintain on their trip to Chievo this Tuesday, a much will depend on Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has a good scoring record against Chievo, finding the net five times in only nine appearances.
Francesco Acerbi and Dario Dainelli are both competing for a spot in midfield for the home side, while Alberto Aquilani, Massimo Ambrosini and Daniele Bonera are all banned for the Rossoneri, who will be without Antonio Cassano, who drops out of the squad.
The action gets underway at 19:45 GMT from the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.
