Chievo snapped a five game losing streak two weeks ago with a fortuitous 2-1 victory against Sampdoria after visiting goalkeeper Sergio Romero dropped a clanger. Chievo's fans will argue that they were due a slice of luck after enduring a miserable start to the season. The home side's injury crisis is beginning to ease a little as they welcome back frontman Sergio Pellissier from a bout of kidney stones.
Fiorentina won't need reminding that Chievo did the double over them last season and the fact that they are yet to win away from home this season. However, just two losses in seven games does make the Viola hard to beat.
Stevan Jovetic will be the go-to guy to get the goals. Jo-Jo has chipped in with five of Fiorentina's eight Serie A goals thus far. Luca Toni will be desperate to play some minutes and add to his solitary strike and prove that he's not a spent force.
Keep a close eye on Adem Ljajic. Look away now Delio Rossi! The former Manchester United man has cleaned his act up and is no longer the disruptive influence that blighted him last season. If the Fiorentina midfield can take some of the scoring burden off Jovetic's shoulders, then the Flying Donkeys won't have their tails up at the final whistle.
