Juventus to maintain Europa League push against Chievo in bet of the day

Turin giants need a win to keep up quest for European action next season

A wretched campaign for the Bianconeri could potentially be rescued if they grab three points this evening. Luigi del Neri has insisted he will remain in charge of Juventus next season and he will have to beat Chievo for that prophecy to stand any chance of coming true.

Despite losing nine games the Italian giants still have a good chance of qualifying for the Europa League. A win would put Juventus just a single point behind Lazio and Roma who currently occupy the two automatic spots.

After a bleak start of the year the former champions have gone on a solid run. They are unbeaten in seven Serie A games (W4 D3) and talisman Alessandro Del Piero has just signed a new deal.

Opponents Chievo aren't safe yet and have a difficult run-in. The Flying Donkeys take on Udinese & Palermo in their two final games of the campaign.

* Juventus have won only one of their last four Serie A meetings with Chievo

* Three of those four games went under 1.5 goals

Punters backing Juventus have been bitten many times this season. However, they have never lost at home to Chievo in Serie A and they really shouldn't start now.

A home win looks the most likely outcome and the Bianconeri should do it with a bit of comfort.
