The last three league games haven’t been on A.S. Roma’s favor. From those three games, Roma has managed to grab 5 points. They have a need to get back on winning terms ahead of their big Champions League clash against Porto this month.
As they travel to Marcantonio Bentegodi to face Chievo today, the expectations are sky high!
Kick-off time: 7:30 pm, February 8, 2019 (UK time)
Stadium: Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi

Over the home advantage, Chievo has a great disadvantage on their side. They will host Roma without captain Sergio Pellissier, who is recovering from his thigh strain. Defenders, Marco Andreolli and Nenad Tomovic are as well receiving treatment.
Roma has four first-team players injured; Robin Olsen, Kostas Manolas, Diego Perotti and Cengiz Under. Lorenzo Pellegrini will miss the match through suspension.
Roma has all the odds on their side, with 6 wins off their 16 visits Roma has mostly dominated Chievo in the past. The Eusebio Di Francesco side hasn’t lost any in their last three league games (WDD) and will be looking to grab 1 or 3 points today. The league favorites are three points short of making to the top four. For not to be written off of the Champions League fixture next season, Roma is in desperate need of points.
Chievo had a rough start to 2019 with just single win in their last 22 Serie A matches. Their winning is on high odds, yet they have a chance to hold Roma from advancing to the top four.
Footybite Prediction: 1 Chievo – 3 A.S. Roma
