Foggia vs Verona Prediction

Foggia finds themselves in a very peculiar situation. They have been a good team this season, but their management totally let them down. The team was stripped off of valuable eight points by the federation and ever since the team is in desperate mode to climb out of the relegation zone.

As expected, they are taking good advantage of their home matches. Expect Foggia to play their hearts out on the pitch this game. There’s little chance that the first half will not see a goal.

One thing to be noted is that Foggia has Verona as their opponents. One of the teams in a fierce run for promotion come next season. Right now the team is comfortably in one of the playoff spots, but for sure, the team will be targeting the direct promotion spot. Verona will not leave this match empty-handed. It will be hard for Foggia to keep a clean sheet in this tie.
