Live in-play betting – 

Chievo could relegate underperforming Palermo with a win in this fixture.

Chievo have already secured their top flight status in the Serie A next season, with no hope of playing in Europe next season, they will be hoping they can finish in the top half of the table this season.

They are currently 13th in the league table after collecting 41 points from 34 league games.

They are currently 16 points above the relegation zone and are 2 points behind 11th placed Udinese.

Winning their remaining matches would give them a good chance of finishing in the top half of the table.

They have only 1 win from their last 6 league games and they have lost their last 2 home games in the league.

Palermo are second from bottom with just 19 points from 34 league games.

Anything other than a win for them in this game would get them relegated.

They won their last game, but prior to that match, they had lost 7 in 9 games, picking up draws from the other 2.

Their away form is not good – they have lost their last 5 away games and they have conceded at least 3 goals in each of those fixtures.

Unsurprisingly Chievo are odds-on favourites to come out on top in this game.

Chievo (probable): Sorrentino; Frey, Dainelli, Cesar, Cacciatore; Izco, Radovanovic, Castro; Birsa; Bastien, Inglese

Suspended: Depaoli, Gobbi

Palermo (probable): Fulignati; Cionek, Goldaniga, Andelkovic; Rispoli, Jajalo, Gazzi, Chochev, Pezzella; Sallai; Diamanti

Suspended: Nestorovski
