Ascoli vs Parma
Italy – Serie B
Date: Monday, 16 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30UK
Venue: Stadio Cino e Lillo Del Luca (Ascoli Picerno).

Ascoli are going to host Parma in the 36th round of Italian Serie B on Monday evening. home side is struggling to keep their place in the second-tier for the next season, while the visitors are searching for their place in the top two.

The hosts are currently sitting on the 20th place, but they are only two points away from the nearest safe spot. Their good run of three wins in the last five matches put them closer to other relegation candidates. Serse Cosmi’s side needs to improve their defensive work as much as they can in the upcoming clashes if they want to keep their heads above the water. Their home performances have been average, but in the last three games they were able to book only wins. Ascoli need to keep up the good form and they could hope of remaining in Serie B next season.

Parma are very close to returning back in the Serie A and they are only a point away from the 2nd place, however they’ve played one game more than their main opponents. They haven’t been defeated in the last five matches and if they continue in the same fashion, they might snatch a direct promotion. Emanuele Calaio and the lads have been pretty productive in front of the oppositions’ goal, and the are putting very good performances when playing away from home. They managed to get back home with a win from seven outings so far in the season.
