It has been seldom in recent games that Vicenza have shown defensive steel. The facts show that Biancorossi have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 12 goals in the process.
Looking at their past form shows that Vicenza:
- are undefeated in their previous 3 home league matches.
- haven’t won at home in the past 5 league games. Their supporters are understandably frustrated.

Team News: Chievo Verona
From a largely healthy group of players, there’s only the one fitness worry for the Chievo Verona boss Alfredo Aglietti to contend with. Felice D'Amico (Foot Injury) misses out for this game.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Vicenza may well find it hard to register a score against this Chievo Verona lineup who we think will get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a very competitive encounter with a 0-1 advantage for Chievo Verona when the referee blows for full-time.
A close call.
