Verona is most famously known as the setting for Shakespeare’s famous drama Romeo & Juliet.  If Chievo continue to get results, Verona might become famous for footballing as well.  The team known as Mussi Volanti,  Flying Donkeys in English, wins the Serie A Team Of The Week for their impressive 3-0 road win versus Lazio on Sunday ending Lazio’s 3 game winning streak. Chievo’s captain Sergio Pellissier scored twice to give them the massive victory as the win lifted Chievo out of the relegation zone into 16th place, 3 points from the drop.

If Chievo continues its current form they should stay in Serie A.  Its been a tale of two seasons for Chievo.  The 2008 part of the season saw Chievo lose all but 5 matches winning only 2 of those 5 as they looked like a lock for relegation.   Since the calendar turned to 2009, Chievo has been a completely different team.  The Flying Donkeys have only lost once and are currently on a 3 game unbeaten streak.  If Chievo had performed better in ’08, they could be challenging for a European spot.  What’s done is done and hopefully for fans of Chievo this 3-0 road win versus Lazio will continue a good run of form that will keep them in the Serie A. Therefore, Associazione Calcio Chievo Verona wins the Week 28 Serie A Team Of The Week.
