BRESCIA v ASCOLI – SERIE B
February 15 2016, Stadio Mario Rigamonti, 19:30 GMT+0
The home side is struggling in the recent matches as they are coming form 3 consecutive losses against Salernitana (3:0), Livorno (1:3) and Pro Vercelli (2:1). The fact that they lost their 1st home match against 15th placed Livorno only tells us something isn’t clicking in the squad.
In a match against Livorno Brescia did indeed suffer 2 red cards, but quite frankly those were not the cause of the loss. Even before the 1st red card for the home side, Livorno was leading 1:2 and I believe the game would end in the visitor’s favour anyway. One of the main problems for Berscia poor performances is their poor defence, as they conceived 8 goals in the last 3 matches, so if they want to get back up, they need to work on their back line.
With the red card against Livorno, Brescia got, they will miss one of the key midfielders Martinelli, as for injured players Somma and Castellini are both sidelined. The good thing is LB Coly is back with his team.
Ascoli on the other side is terrible visitor, with only 2 wins this season.A record of 2-0-10 is not what they want to see to be fair. So it’s surprising they managed to get a win on the road against Livorno (1:3) and it’s a important information, as Livorno are the only team who managed to beat Brescia at home, and with a simple usage of logic, we can predict Ascoli can be dangerous today at Stadio Mario Rigamonti. Looking at other away matches for Ascoli, they also have a lot of problems looking at their defence, with 8 goals conceived in the last 3 away matches, which is same as today’s hosts.
Ascoli will miss freshly injured Altobelli, Mengoni and De Grazia, as well as Cacia and Tripoli who has yet to play this season. On the pisitive note Canini, Ragni, Bianchi and one of the key midfielders Jankto are all back with their team.
In conclusion the poor defence of the both sides will surely result in many goals, over 2.5 is my prediction, and I am sure the result will show exactly that.
Prediction: Over 2.5
Prediction: 1.93 Pinnacle
