Spanish winger Iago Falque netted a brace in the 35th and 38th minutes to give the hosts a 2-0 lead at the end of the first half as head coach Siniša Mihajlović's boys took early control of the game.
Chievo was able to trim the lead to one point in the 85th minute, but Italian defender Fabrizio Cacciatore was sent off with a minute left before full-time as Gialloblu's comeback attempt fell short.
