Ascoli vs Brescia Prediction & Betting tips
In the second highest Italian league is the last matchday on the program. After 41 laps played, especially the fight for the relegation places is still in full swing. Six teams are still at risk of finishing 18th or 19th. In this article we deal with the duel between Ascoli Picchio and Brescia Calcio. Ascoli has earned 45 points and is currently in 18th place, thanks largely to his performance in the last five games. In these Ascoli earned nine points and climbed to the last relegation place. The yield of Brescia is significantly worse – only two points from the last five games fought the northern Italians. With 47 points in the account, they are in 15th place.
The winner of this duel will secure early on the League. For the team that loses, on the other hand, the play-outs are just around the corner. The wagering companies favor the home team – when betting on Ascoli‘s tips on sports betting odds up to 2.25 are available. Successful bets on the away team will give you around three times the wager.
The traditional club Ascoli Picchio experienced an intense season in Serie B. After 30 rounds, the footballers from the Marche region occupied the 22nd and last place in the table. Two players were then attacked by their own fans. Only in the 2014/15 season Ascoli managed the promotion to Serie B. After three rather unsuccessful seasons in this league, the signs were again on descent. In the ’00s was the most successful time of the club in the recent past. Ascoli even played some seasons in the top league – until financial problems ensued. Since the defeat this season against Venezia, the woodpeckers earned only against Foggia and Parma no points.
The record from the last eleven games can be seen: 19 points (5-4-3), with Ascoli only had to concede eleven goals. This gives them the sixth best form of all the Serie B teams. Nevertheless, this performance increase was not enough for the league. It is expected that Novara and Avellino each earn three points in their last games. Therefore Ascoli also needs a win in their home game to fight for at least 17th place. After all, Ascoli conceded in the home Stadio Cino e Lillo Del Duca so far only one defeat against Brescia.
For more than 30 years Brescia Calcio has been in Serie B, with the Northern Italians competing at regular intervals for individual seasons in Serie A. However, Brescia never managed to keep the class, and after the ascent always returned straight back to Serie B – although Roberto Baggio went for Brescia from 2000 to 2004 for goal-scoring. In the current season, the white-blue could take the transition to the third division. Already in the season 2014/15, the northern Italians would have descended. However, since Parma was not licensed because of the bankruptcy, Brescia was allowed to hold the class. It will be different this season.
Since Brescia has only earned two points from the last five games, they have even come into this situation. But a defeat against Ascoli could reach the team of coach Ivo Pulga for the league. In this case, however, Brescia would need help from other teams. The greatest hope is currently resting on the shoulders of Andrea Caracciolo and Ernesto Torregrossa. The two achieved together 23 hits. In the last victory against Spezia in April Torregrossa provided with his goal for the decision. I assume that the pair will not be successful against Ascoli, as in the last five games.
