The team allowed their opponents goals in 9 of the last 10 games for this competition, so they have not been very strong defensively.

Chievo have managed to build up some good results in the opening rounds of the Italian Championship, but are now in a very difficult phase as they have not won eight games and suffered six defeats in that period. The last of them occurred at home against Juventus in a game where he had a poor performance, having finished only once, and finished with two players expelled, further facilitating the life of the opponent, which is naturally much higher.
