Perugia vs Avellino: Preview and Predictions

Perugia vs Avellino Predictions-Italian Serie A 6th November 2017

Perugia vs Avellino
Italian Serie B
Date: Monday, 6th November 2017
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Renato Curi (Perugia).

Perugia seems to have lost the plot after a solid start to the season and are sliding down the league table towards the relegation zone. After picking 4 wins and a draw from the first six games, the team is win-less in the next six which completely damaged the morale in the dressing room.

The Grifoni are coming on the back of an away draw at Cremonese which temporarily halt their losing streak of five matches. One must expect better from the team that finished fourth in the league last season and went as far as the promotion play-off semifinals.

U.S. Avellino avoid relegation by the slimmest of the margins last season by finishing 17th. Their start is slightly better this time with 5 wins coming from the 12 games so far. Yet, they are only 2 points above the drop zone at the moment.

Form-wise, Avellino lost 4 of their last five matches in the Serie B. And they have little to show in the away form column. They managed only 1 win from the 6 road games so far and conceded 13 goals, which is an average of 2.1 goals per game.

Perugia vs Avellino: Head-to-head

Perugia had won in the last five Serie B games against Avellino. Also, they are unbeaten in the last 9 in all competitions with 6 wins and 3 draws.

Avellino scored just once in their last five away games at Perugia.

Perugia vs Avellino: Predictions

Perugia have the quality in their squad and it is a mystery why they are playing so bad at the moment. Yet, they must have gained some confidence after holding the third placed Cremonese to a 3-3 draw last week.

On the other hand, Avellino have been inconsistent throughout the season. Adding this to their poor away credentials and underwhelming h2h record against Perugia, the hosts are poised to end their barren run.
