Palermo – Livorno 1 @ 1.75 10/10
What’s happen to Palermo in this 2008, fiour defeats in a row is a very negative beginning of year and the President Zamparini, almost notorious for his fit of anger, is almost ready to action in case of another negative result. In the last match against Roma the situation is seemed a little bit better than the recent past and probably Palermo deserved the draw but the forwards were too imprecise and all the goals chances has been failed although during the match Palermo have had the midfield’s control for a long time. Livorno lost against Juventus the last home match and this could be normal but the abnormal was how they have been defeated, they didn’t play as in the latest matches where they collected important points to come out from the relegation battle. For the next match Bergvold, Giannichedda and Volpe are all doubtful due their injures while for sure will miss De Vezze as suspension. Palermo need these three points and I think they will grab all.
Albinoleffe Vicenza 1 @ 1.65 7/10
After the last away from home win Albinoleffe have a good opportunity to reduce some more the gap from one of the two leaders Bologna and Chievo. Albinoleffe didn’t suffered at all against a Spezia completely unmotivated. The two goals didn’t explain well the great match played by Albinoleffe. They are returned to run after a little period in which they are seemed tired, last month they collected only 2 points out of the 9 available due a defeat and a double draw.
Vicenza is living a nightmare, it seemed that they have solved their problem with the Zampagna’s arrival but the player after a first important goal in his debut match is now injured, like another important forward Schwoch. Against Bologna in the last match some good signs have been highlighted for Vicenza but, in spite of these, the attack line seem to be too weak without their major players.
A home win here should be the good choice here
Ascoli Ravenna 1 @ 1.85 10/10
As I said more and more time Ascoli was one of the beginning candidate for the promotion this year but they are paying the difficulty of this serie B. The players don’t seem still completely aware about this realty, new for some of them, and in some matches they have played without the right effort. Last match is an evident example about this my issue, Ascoli, in fact, after having scored the draw goal left the match in the Piacenza hands conceding , in the latest minutes the victory goal.
The next opponent for Ascoli will be Ravenna, galvanized for the fantastic and unexpected home win against Mantova. For Ravenna the away from home matches are, until now, a very nightmare, only three points in this season is a very negative trend.
Considering that Ascoli won the last match more than 2 months ago, after that 6 draws in a row and the last round defeat, for me it’s time to keep all points.
Brescia Grosseto 1(0:1)AH 2.08
Brescia in the recent transfer market sold some interesting players like Mannini, Santacroce but in the attack line De Zerbi joined the club. The players after long time spent on the Napoli’s bench have now the opportunity to show that he is an important and good player.
In the beginning of the season Brescia have built the actual position but lately they don’t seem to be in good condition and the draw against Vicenza confirm this fact.
Now Cosmi want to understand what kind of team he has under his mhands, the fantastic team as in the beginning of the season or the normal one saw in the recent past. Grosseto lost the last home match after the great win against Spezia in the previous match. In the away from home matches Grosseto didn’t show great football and today against Brescia I don’t believe that they could have any kind of possibily to keep also a single point. The difference is too high between this two team and I wxpect an home win with more than 1 goal difference
Triestina Chievo X @ 2.85 6/10
Triestina this year is playing a very good season, they won last away from home match against a good Messina Their unique ambition for this year is, as usual, to avoid the relegation without to arrive to the last round and to try to find some interesting young players to sell at the end of the season. For example this year Granoche is doing a great job in the attack line and Triestina is surfing in the quite position also thanks to his goals. In the last match they have played without some important players in the best condition but the team played a good football.
Chievo confirmed their good moment against Cesena also thanks to two late Cossati’s goals, this win permit to them to stay at the top of the table near Bologna. Chievo in the away from home matches works great, they won eight matches, If Iachini’s team continue this way they will be one of the biggest candidates for direct promotion.
I see a draw here.
Reggina – Torino 1 @ 2.29 6/10
Two teams involved in the relegation battle will face in this important match. Both team have 18 points and both have to win desperately to hope to come out from this very bad situation. The difference between this two team is all in the particular moment that they are living. Reggina, after the change of the coach have began a different championship grabbing 2 w 4 draws and 3 defeats leaving the bottom rock of the table and restarting to hope in a quite safety. The new coach Ulivieri is an expert as regard the relegation battle and I think that also this year he can repeat the miracle and save Reggina without the play out. As regard Torino the discussion is completely different. Torino are suffering a lot of injury due a not good athletically preparation, Rosina and Co. Is always broken and Novellino have always change the line up and this is a huge trouble. Reggina won the last two home matches against Cagliari and Catania while Torino didn’t win any match far from Comunale. I believe that Reggina will win the match
Siena – Roma Over 2.5 @ 1.95 6/10
Siena has been able to overcome Palermo two weeks ago in the last away from home match playing a wonderful match, scorino 3 oals in a single match. After that they have been able, also, to leave all points against a not great Sampdoria after having conceded a late first half goal and renouncing to play for all the second half. Which of these two different teams is the real Siena? At the moment I don’t know but this team usually against the big is used to play excellent matches, only for example Siena – Inter 2 3. During the last transfer campaign some interesting players joined this club: Kharja from Piacenza, the experienced Rigano from Levante Coppola and Porta.Roma are unbeaten outside Olimpico, they won six of ten away from home matches. The return of Totti to his standard levels is the great news for Roma. The Giallorossi joined the quarter of Final for the Italian Cup overcoming Sampdoria in the last round and are in positive serie from more ten matches.Considering that Siena play an offensive football and that Roma have some players able to play in counter attack I believe that this match could finish with more than 2 goals
Fiorentina – Milan Over 2.5 @ 2 5/10
The match of the day. Milan and Fiorentina will face in an important match for the fourth place in the table, the last available for the Champions League Qualification. It’s true that there is still time for the closing of the championship but a win here will be how to conquest a double points. Milan won against Reggina in the middle week recovery round thanks to another goals scored by Gilardino. It’s strange but Gilardino has started to play very well from when Pato is arrived, in the last match besides the goal Gila played a clever match supporting the midfield and creating the right space in the attack . It will be very hard for Ancelloti to renounce to this players in this moment. Fiorentina lost the last home match in the return leg of Coppa Italia against Lazio showing a not perfect defensive line. Against Lazio Fiorentina showed all their difficulty to stop two fast players like Pandev and Rocchi. For this match I think that also Milan will have some trouble in the defensive line both for the presence of Mutu and Pazzini in the Fiorentina attack line and also because they could have Dida as goalkeeper.For me both team will score at least a goal
