Fiorentina will host Chievo on Wednesday turning their attention to Coppa Italia and hoping they can move into the last eight and possibly challenge European trials through the competition.
Chievo travel to Florence in a poor spell of form for their second match in just days as they’ve started the New Year similarly to their closing of 2016 – losing to an in-form Atalanta side (1-4) on Sunday. They now hope they can cause an upset at Artemio Franchi and get through to the Quarterfinals but Fiorentina will have plans of their own and we’ll back a home win here at 4/7 with BetVictor
Viola have had their Sunday match at Pescara postponed for heavy snow and they will certainly be better rested for the Coppa Italia challenge to follow. The home side have had a somewhat poor series behind them as well, earning just one point in their last three outings but they’ve dropped the points rather narrowly (1-0 loss at Genoa, 3-1 at Lazio and a 3-3 draw against Napoli)! Conceding goals in the last minutes will surely be a worry for Paulo Sousa and he will want more back line consistency on the long run.
However, Fiorentina should be able to turn this one their way as Chievo travel on the back of two poor performances, conceding seven goals in their last two matches played! The visitors have generally struggled on the road and they’ve earned just one win in their last five away matches (0-2 at Palermo in December). Gialloblu have netted at least a goal in four of their last five outings, though, and we feel they will be able to find the net here too, for the first time since 2014.
We’ll thus go for a Yes on Both teams to score at Evens with bet365
, while Fiorentina to win and both teams to score comes at a generous 3/1 with the same bookie! We’ll also try a more adventurous bet here, predicting a correct score and a 2-1 home win at 15/2 with Ladbrokes
Looking at the goalscorers market, one can’t fail to notice the fine form of Federico Bernardeschi who bagged two goals in the Napoli draw and has nine league goals to his name this term. We’ll now back him to continue the streak in Coppa Italia and score anytime at 12/5 with William Hill
