VERONA – Sassuolo's European flavor, dark pesto for Gian Piero Ventura. The Emilians overcome the derelict Chievo and make an important leap in the standings over Roma and Fiorentina. A nice blow for the guys of De Zerbi who pass to the Bentegodi of Verona with ease and without much effort. Little, too little, the current Chievo of the former blue coach: a team certainly decimated by the many absences, but which rightly pays the poor quality of its interpreters.
The Chievo of the many seasons in the top flight had a well-defined prerogative, almost unsurpassed defense. This, however, regularly takes the goal, then the expiration of the match, author of Giaccherini, really comical. If in recent years it was the attack, the Achilles' heel of the Venetians this year is even more so. In a match already almost from inside or outside the Chievo never kicks towards the door of Councils and in 90 'does not build even a ball goal worthy of the name.
Sassuolo, on the other hand, confines itself to checking and vivaciously quietly on Di Francesco's net that opens the box. Berardi, however good his test, wastes several times the doubling that comes in the last action in the game inopinata. Ventura on the eve had said to glimpse the light at the end of the tunnel, which seems at this point interminable. And the management of the former national coach is bankrupt: three games, as many defeats.
Departure without major jolts then comes the Di Francesco network that wedges well in the Gialloblu area and beats diagonally Sorrentino. Chievo in the second half tries with few ideas, the Sassuolo controls and fails with the doubling of the Berardi thanks to Giaccherini's own authorization. It ends here. The Sassuolo finds the victory after having collected two points in the last four races and beats Chievo with two goals. Yet another defeat for the Gialloblù team that, for the first time since the beginning of this season, has given at least proof of aggression.
The intensity is similar to that seen against Cagliari in the second half, but in the final minutes, the mental collapse was accompanied by physical collapse. Everything still to be redone for Mr. Ventura. It starts from the challenge of next week against Bologna. But the impression is that the championship for Chievo is still paved with suffering and bitterness.
