Foggia vs Pro Vercelli
Italian Serie B
Date: 29th March 2018, Thursday
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Pino Zaccheria (Foggia).
Foggia will be desperate to get back to winning ways after suffering a 1-3 away defeat at Parma on Sunday. Now the gap with relegation zone is a meagre 6 points and the team is certainly in doldrums as they are only 7 points behind the promotion zone. In a nutshell, Foggia’s home performances from now is extremely important.
They do have the momentum in that case, with 3 of the last 4 home games resulting in wins.
Pro Vercelli is sitting inside the automatic relegation zone and need 5 points to move away to safety. Their recent results are satisfactory for a team in that position, but an uplift is needed to extend their stay in Serie B beyond the 2017/18 season. Pro Vercelli were beaten just once in their last 9 league games, but 6 of them are draws. Moreover, the team do have a knack of scoring goals when least expected, making them a dangerous custodian to come across in both home and away games in recent weeks.
Foggia vs Pro Vercelli: Head-to-head
It was a thumping 4-1 win for Foggia when they met Pro Vercelli earlier this season, which happened to be their first head-to-head meeting in Serie A.
The teams had met twice in the third tier during the 2011/12 season, both matches ended in stalemates.
Foggia vs Pro Vercelli: Prediction
Three points are there for the taking if Foggia have to start making a dramatic push for promotion play-offs. Anyway, punters must expect a high scoring game here, especially when Pro Vercelli despite their low league position often come with an intention of playing attacking football. They are capable of scoring goals, but the leaky defense seen them returning with no points in the bag.
