PERUGIA v VICENZA – Serie B
January 19 2016, Renato Curi Stadium, 19:30 GMT+0
These two teams have clashed twice and both of the matches ended in 4 goals (2:2) and (3:1). The last match up between these two was a week ago, when Perugia was dominated with only 39% possession and only 2 shots on target they lost 3:1.
Today Perugia will play in front of their own fans where we can expect great performance from them, as the home advantage is noticeable in Serie B more than in other leagues. Also they have an excellent home record with only 1 loss in 10 matches, looking at that we can see they give their opponents hard time winning when they visit Renato Curi Stadium.
Their last match was a bit disappointing for them, as they lost against Como even though they had very similar amount possession and shots on goal. Not only that, but Perugia’s player Belmonte received 2nd yellow card in the 90′ and won’t be able to play today.
On the other side Vincenza’s last match ended in 2:1, when they won against Modena after loosing 1st half with 0:1 they came back in 75′ and had a bit of luck when scoring a late goal in 90′ to take all 3 points.
All in all Vincenza is decent team when playing on the road and has won previous match up between these two teams 3:1, but we must take into consideration the fact they played at home, whereas today they will visit the same opponent as last week, but we can expect Perugia to come off a stronger side today, so it won’t be easy for Vincenza.
My prediction for this match is that Perugia will win by more than 1 goal, so Perugia -0.5 is a decent bet. Another prediction for this match up could also be over 2 goals.
Prediction: Perugia -0.5
Odds: 2.09 Pinnacle
Prediction II: Over 2 goals
Odds: 1.86 Pinnacle
