Match Preview

Despite earning good draws against Lazio and Inter recently, Chievo are still the only side in Serie A (SA) yet to register a victory (D8, L10). This makes them one of only seven teams since the 1971/72 SA season that have failed to win any of their first 18 games – all the other six were relegated, five in last place.
Where this match is concerned, the desperate search for a talisman takes Chievo off the pitch entirely! Chievo head coach Domenico Di Carlo is unbeaten in eight of ten H2H matches on the touchline against Frosinone (W4, D4, L2) with none of the last four seeing both sides score.
Yet visiting manager Marco Baroni has won three of his four prior managerial H2H matches vs Di Carlo (W3, L1). However, even though he has a personal advantage over his Chievo counterpart, Frosinone still have just one win from 18 this term (W1, D7, L10) having also been relegated in their only other SA campaign to date.
For what it’s worth, Frosinone’s sole SA win this term has come away from home (3-0 vs Spal). An optimist can also boast that the visitors are unbeaten in three of their last five on the road (W1, D2, L2), which represents relatively solid form for a relegation favourite.
Players to watch: 39-year-old Chievo forward Sergio Pellissier has scored in each of his side’s last two SA home matches. Meanwhile, Camillo Ciano found the net to earn Frosinone a draw in their last away match.
Stat attack: Only one SA side (Spal) has picked up more bookings than Chievo’s 45 (2.5 per game on average).
Chievo have conceded first in 72% (13) of their 18 league matches this season.
A majority (five) of Frosinone’s last seven matches have seen them concede first.
