Two middle table teams will face this night. Both teams are still unbeaten in the first two matches. Ascoli met Vicenza and Ancona collecting 1 win and 1 draw; Triestina met Bari and Avellino collecting 1 win and 1 draw. In spite of this similar trend Ascoli had a more difficult run until now. Ascoli starting this season, the nth in the serie B, with promotion dreams, the players arrived during the summer can assure to “marchigiani” the right contribution and experience in order to meet the promotion goal. In the beginning match of this season, played at home against Vicenza, Ascoli showed a strong character overcoming the visitors thanks to a Bucchi goal and an hard defence of this advantage. They confirmed their traditional strength at home and also in this season their stadium Del Duca could be their fortress. The good news for the Ascoli coach is that their injured players are now available. Only Micolucci will miss in the today’s match due suspension. Triestina this year have to confirm the good last season when they finished in the middle of table after having joined the safety with a good calm. Until now Triestina have showed a good football and also a strong character to play in this difficult serie B, the draw gained in the beginning match against Bari is an eloquent signal of how this Triestina is able to suffer and to fight for all the match. For this match Triestina will have some important players like Tabbiani,Eliakwu,Petras and Lima out due injury or suspension. Now all things considered and taking into account also the next binding match for Ascoli (Brescia and Mantova) I think that marchigiani can win here this night.
Probable line up for this night:
Ascoli (4-4-2): Taibi; Nastos, Melucci, Cioffi, Pesce; Aloe, Di Donato, Luci, Guberti; Bucchi, Soncin.
Triestina (4-4-2): Agazzi; Cacciatore, Cottafava, Minelli, Rullo; Antonelli, Allegretti, Gorgone, Testini; Della Rocca, Figoli
