Verona vs Cosenza
Date: Monday, 28th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi (Verona).
The Yellows and Blues had a 5 match unbeaten run in the league, before the loss against Padova away from home. More than 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of their recent 5 games across all venues. Home form of the team from Veneto has been excellent, to say the least. They have lost just one of their previous 10 competitive games at home. A 2 game winning run is going on at home in the Serie B for the Mastiffs at present.
The great home season gave them the 5th spot in the table and a potential chance to play in the playoffs. Scoring and defending has been average considering the level they play in. If they continue this kind of form, they will get back to the top tier after just a season in the second division.
Wolves are not at their best this season. After getting promoted from the third division of Italian football, they are finding life hard in Serie B. Seven matches of the 19 games so far has been lost by the team managed by Piero Braglia. There is a 10 point difference between his side and their opponents for Monday.
A 4 match unbeaten run is also going on for them after some defeats at the start of the season. But 3 of those games were goalless draws against teams who are better than them. But away form is below par for the Red-Blues as they lost 3 of their recent games on the road. Three of those games had the same score-line 1-0.
Verona is a team to beat at home, but I don’t think the Wolves are the team to do it. So they may have to wait again for the next opportunity for a win against the hosts.
Verona vs Cosenza: Head-to-head (h2h)

Verona vs Cosenza: Prediction
The Mastiffs only failed to score in one home game in their last 10 matches. Both the teams scored on 8 occasions in those 10 games as well. Cosenza has scored recently against teams like Palermo who are at the top of the table and have one of the best defense at present. So a bet can be placed on both sides to score on Monday with 1.90 odds.
Verona is already the favorites to walk away with 3 points as they have never lost to the Wolves. With a 2 match win streak going on against these visitors, the mental advantage will be with them. Also based on the current form we can bet on Verona to win with 1.95 odds.
