Chievo vs Fiorentina Preview

Fiorentina travel to Verona for Sunday's game against Chievo looking to claim their first victory on the road this season.

Happy days are here again for Jovetic.

Seven months have passed since the Viola last celebrated a win on their travels.

With just two points taken in four games away from home this season, Fiorentina have had to rely on their results at the Artemio Franchi stadium to remain above the relegation zone.

Last Sunday's 1-0 triumph over Genoa saw Fiorentina halt a five-match winless run and marked their fourth victory of the campaign.

The result allowed Sinisa Mihajlovic's side to climb to 10th in the Serie A standings.

"This result gives us a bit of breathing space and allows us to look to the future with optimism," Fiorentina right-back Romulo said.

"Now we have to give continuity to our performances and play better in order to start winning on the road."

With games against AC Milan, Palermo, Roma and Inter Milan round the corner, Fiorentina will want to make the most of this weekend's game.

Rivals Chievo go into Sunday's encounter looking to rediscover their winning touch, with their last victory dating back to September 25.

Sunday's 4-1 loss at Siena marked Chievo's third consecutive defeat and left coach Domenico Di Carlo under pressure.

The Flying Donkeys lie 16th in the standings, just two points clear of the relegation zone.

"We had the wrong approach to the game at Siena," Di Carlo said.

"It was our worst performance of the campaign and I hope my players can learn from their mistakes and try to do things better in our next games."

Chievo will be without suspended defender Bostjan Cesar.
