Eugenio Corini expects “a tricky test for both teams” as his Chievo take on Pescara in a relegation tussle on Sunday.
The Flying Donkeys are fifth from bottom on 32 points, while the Delfini are last on a par with Palermo on 21. Click here for a match preview.
“It is a tricky test for both teams, us and them,” said the Coach. “It is a game that can give us the push towards safety, but it is against a direct rival and we have to prepare well for this.
“Last week’s win over Napoli told us we can fight it out with anyone. We reacted well in a moment when we were struggling to get results.
“Pescara are in a difficult time right now, but I saw them playing against Atalanta and they put a lot of grit into that performance.
“They will give their all to beat us and we will do the same. Let’s not think about our chances of safety, as we just have to focus on picking up as many points as possible.”
