Point deduction wasn’t necessary for Chievo Verona
They started the season against the defending champions in a 3-2 defeat. Despite the result, Chievo played a match that indicated a promising season that was going to see them rapidly get out of the -3 and begin improvement on what they accomplished last season.
With 10 wins and 10 draws at the end of the 2017/18 Italian Serie A season and a comfortable 13th place finish in the league, being docked three points at the start of the season after being found guilty of improper practices in their financial accounting didn’t seem too steep for Chievo Verona to recover.
10 matches later and Chievo Verona remains in the negative after a winless start that is composed by 8 defeats and 2 draws and currently has the worse goal difference (-18) in the 5 European football leagues.
Chievo Verona vs Sassuolo

Chievo Verona will be on a 7-match losing streak if they find themselves on the wrong end of the score after playing Sassuolo.
