SERIE B ....
RAVENNA - CHIEVO VERONA
Ravenna are bottom of the table and look set to be making a sift return to "C", they have collected just two points from a possible eighteen and have conceded ten goals in their last five starts.
Chievo are in fine form, top the table and are also top scorers, with 55 goals. They are on a long unbeaten run and have already registered nine away wins, a fine total by any standards, but especially in Serie B. Play has opened up a lot more in this normally tight league, with the average match now producing over 2.5 goals per game, an increase of 0.25 over the last couple of seasons.
With the top six in the table seemingly booked for ,at least a play-off spot, they are all nine clear of the seventh placed team, there seems, with just 4 points seperating the top sides, no point in looking for anything other than the victory in fixtures like these. With Chievo set to face the second and third placed teams in the next few weeks, this is a clear away win for me.
5 points Chievo -1/2 ball 1.80 general quote.... now 1.77
