Avellino vs Perugia
Italian Serie B
Date: 9th April 2018, Monday
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Partenio (Avellino).
Avellino look like a team in tatters after the 1-2 defeat to Bari last week. They have now lost two on the bounce at home and dropped to the relegation waters. Besides, their confidence will be with no league win coming since February 24.
Perugia on the other hand are on stunning form and took it to 9 games on the weekend with a 2-0 away win at Pro Vercelli. They bagged 7 wins in that period and can be considered equally capable away from the road as well. They are positioned at 4th in the standings and are contenders for automatic promotion with the second placed Frosinone 5 points away.
Avellino vs Perugia: Head-to-head
- Avellino’s lone win against Perugia came in their first Serie B meeting back in 2006.
- Perugia had won 6 and drew 4 in the 10 match unbeaten streak since then.
- The reverse of the corresponding fixture was a 1-1 draw that ended Perugia’s 5 match winning streak in h2h meetings.
Avellino vs Perugia: Prediction
Both teams are in search for win for two obvious reasons – Avellino to escape relegation and Perugia to move into the automatic promotion zone.
The merit of form goes to Perugia, who gave little away to oppositions in their last 9 league games. Adding this to their strong h2h record against Avellino, the away victory can be considered as the value bet.
An even better punt will be both teams to score since Avellino have scored and conceded in their last 5 home games. While the visitors scored in each of their last 8 away games and conceded in 6. So, btts is my primary pick for this Serie B clash.
