Livorno vs Cosenza
Italy – Serie B
Date: Sunday, 10th February 2019
Kick-off at 14.00 UK/ 15.00 CET
Venue: Stadio Armando Picchi (Livorno).
Either of these squads is going through desperate times. The season has entered its final stretch, and they have not yet made any considerable progress in shedding off their bottom-zone tags. Roberto Breda’s men will be the more affected one, as they are second-to-last in the table, and is probably a loss away from becoming the team at the extreme end.
It seems like the strategy of the Wolves to target draws is paying off as they have built a bit of a safety cushion for them to fall on. They are five points above the relegation cut-off. But the steady rise of Foggia from below the ranks must not be taken lightly of.
Livorno vs Cosenza Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last game ended in a stalemate.
- Two of the last three games failed to have over 2.5 goals.
- One of the last two fixtures ended with only one team on the scorecard.
- Since 2002, every tie between these two ended without a definitive result.
Livorno vs Cosenza Prediction
The teams will resort to careful gameplay since a loss will have long-lasting effects, from which a comeback might not be possible. Also, a trend of draws can be seen in the recent fixtures of either of these groups. Both have judiciously avoided going after wins, and even at times they have recorded a victory, the scorelines were minimal in nature.
Amaranto recorded five draws in their last six matches and four in their last five home-ties. The Red-blues, on the other hand, posted four stalemates from their last six attempts, and also their last road trip ended as such.
Importantly, Le Triglie failed to score in two of their last five overall games, and in three of their last five home-ties, and so did Piero Braglia’s men in four of their last seven match-ups.
I expect these teams to stick true to their basic character and produce another lackluster performance for the fans. A bet on the first half to end 0-0 has great value.
