Frosinone vs Venezia
Italian Serie B
Date: 29th March 2018, Thursday
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Benito Stirpe (Frosinone).
Frosinone welcome the newly promoted Venezia on Thursday night in a match where both teams looking to put some points on the board to improve their promotion bid. Yet, the hosts remain favorite on the back of a solid record at the Stadio Benito Stirpe.
The Canaries were relegated to Serie B last season, but made it to the play-offs last time before losing out to Carpi in the semifinals. They want to avoid a similar fate this time and the eyes will be all set on a top two finish.
For that, Frosinone will be looking to take full-advantage of the remaining home games in a stadium where they were beaten just once this season. They picked 35 points from their 16 matches so far and are the second best home team in the league. These stats look promising for a home win, especially when their visitors have struggled to get wins on the road.
Venezia on the other hand are one of the teams pushing for the play-off spots. This is a marvelous achievement for a team that just got promoted to the second tier. Their success can be largely attributed to the aggressive on-field tactics of Filippo Inzaghi. To add to this, the team boast of an excellent record at home. However, the away form is far from impressive and they have managed a moderate 3 wins from their 15 away games so far.

Frosinone vs Venezia: Prediction
The Canaries are among the best home sides in the league, while the team from Venice are an average away side. Yet, both teams are pushing for promotion, especially the hosts who are in the mix for automatic qualification.

So, this may go down the wire and the hosts look like the most likely candidate to edge a late win.
