A cagey encounter could be on the cards in Chievo on Sunday night, live on BT Sport.
Chievo v AC Milan - Sunday 19:45, BT Sport 1
Chievo have won four of their opening seven games to leave them in 5th as they look to secure back-to-back top-half finishes after they managed 9th last term. They’re currently one place above Milan, who have responded to two defeats in their first three with three wins in four unbeaten games as they look to get back into European competition after a barren few seasons.
Chievo have lost just one of their last 15 home games and that was against Juve as they’ve proved tough to beat in Verona, keeping six clean sheets in their last 10 at home. When hosting sides between 5th and 10th they’re W2-D5-L0 since the start of last season in games that have generally proved low-scoring as five saw fewer than three goals while four were level at the break.
Milan’s inconsistent away record since the start of last season is W7-D7-L8 but when travelling to sides between 5th and 10th they’re W1-D6-L4 since the start of 2014/15 as the spoils have generally been shared. With both these teams in decent form and with strong draw tendencies, we’re backing the stalemate in what could prove a cagey encounter.
