SERIE A MATCH REPORT

Serie A Week 33 - 18 Apr 2018 (19.45 UK)
Spal 0 - 0
Stadio Paolo Mazza

It was a share of the spoils in Ferrara that does precious little for either team, as SPAL and Chievo remain in danger.

This was a big clash to stay out of the drop zone, as they were one and three points off the relegation places respectively. The Spallini were in their first top flight campaign for 50 years, but were growing over time and on a very impressive seven-match unbeaten run, despite missing Jasmin Kurtic, Marco Borriello, Pasquale Schiattarella, Boukary Drame and Filippo Costa. The Flying Donkeys had Mattia Bani suspended, but welcomed Emanuele Giaccherini back from his ban.

Stefano Sorrentino acrobatically palmed a Vicari effort away from close range after Manuel Lazzari’s cross, but Chievo went very close on the hour mark when Manuel Pucciarelli’s toe-poke on a Roberto Inglese knock-down bounced off the base of the far post.
