Chievo squeezed past Pescara in the Coppa Italia Third Round thanks to a lone goal from Nicola Rigoni.
They will face either Cagliari or Palermo in the next stage in December.
The Flying Donkeys opened their campaign this evening at the Stadio Bentegodi.
Perparim Hetemaj floated in the cross from the left and Rigoni towered above the crowd to nod in on 56 minutes.
Another Rigoni header had forced an earlier save for the side coached by Lorenzo D’Anna.
Chievo 1-0 Pescara
Rigoni 56 (C)
