LIVORNO v COMO – SERIE B
January 25 2016, Armando Picchi, 19:35 GMT+0
Livorno has a terrible this season, as they have not yet won in 11 league matches, even at Armando Pichhi stadium, where they suffer from 5 matches withouth a win. So it’s no surprise, they are at 19th place in Serie B. The bad performance by Livorno can be connected with their financial problems, so the club had to go on loan market, which means they have 14 players on loan, and the rules state, that only 5 can be on the pitch at one time.
Their today opponents are on the bottom of the league with only 17 points. Even though they poor placement, they were able to win 2 matches in a row against Salernitana ans Perugia, so the team morale is surely high and we can expect a good performance from them today.
Livorno will have to start this match without Morelli, Emerson and Lambrughi who are all freshly sidelined, whereas Defato, Cazzola and Gonnelli all missed more than 1 match so far due to injury. Aramu will be welcomed back after an injury.
The hosts are missing long term absences of Le Noci, who is still injured and Garcia, Ambrosini and Jakimovski who are going to miss this match. On the positive note Andrenacci and Cristiani are back with their team.
My prediction for this match is Como +0.5, as there is a good possibility they manage to win against poor performing Livorno, even though the game is on the road for Como, they showed they can handle the stress from visiting opponents pitch with a draw against Cagliari in December.
Prediction: Como +0.5
Odds: 1.82 Pinnacle Sports
