Serie A action on Sunday as ASS and Verona meet at Stadio Brianteo – 3:00pm GMT.

This clash sees fifteenth placed ASS, welcome nineteenth placed Verona to Stadio Brianteo.

AC Monza arrive at this fixture, having secured 10 points so far this season

Only a positive result will be acceptable for Raffaele Palladino’s men, following their recent home defeat at the hands of Bologna in their last match.

Also, Raffaele Palladino knows that a run of eight losses in 12 games for his ASS side, is going to be a tough run of form to change. However that is exactly what he must try to deliver. Their position is fifteenth in the League and they have 10 points, that is, 3W, 8L and 1D having won three matches, drawn one game, and lost eight matches.

Playing at home, ASS have won two meetings and lost four fixtures.

A win in this fixture would take AC Monza’s points to 13 in the League.

ASS are no strangers this season to illness and injury and Raffaele Palladino is concerned that Sunday’s fixture could see him without two of his key players.

Nervous Hellas Verona take relegation battle to Stadio Brianteo to face AC Monza

It was a humbling defeat at the hands of Roma for Salvatore Bocchetti’s men in their last match, they will be hoping to get something out of this game for sure.

Also, some statistics are more relevant than others they say, and seven losses for Verona seems very relevant, as they now face a relegation battle. They currently stand nineteenth in the League, with five points for a total of 1 wins, 9 losses and 2 draws having won one game, drawn two meetings, and lost nine meetings.

Verona’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to ASS. In the 6 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far drawn two meetings and lost four fixtures.

Hellas Verona will have 8 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

It is likely that nine key players will miss Sunday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Salvatore Bocchetti and his Verona team.
