When it comes to Italian football, everyone is concerned mostly about the events happening in Serie A. However, every now and then, some exciting games take place in the second division. Brescia and Frosinone lock horns in such a match that is of extraordinary importance for the two teams. Both are hoping to return to the elite of Italian football and losing against a counter candidate is unacceptable.
A Frightening Losing Streak for Brescia
The home side hasn’t won in eight games and lost five in a row. These numbers are downright frightening, but they don’t tell the whole story. All the losses were suffered in the last round of last season, when the team was already out of the promotion race. Perhaps more surprising is the recent defeat against Pisa in the Italian cup, but then again Brescia has bigger fish to fry.
This match against Frosinone is the one that the fans are waiting for, as the visitors have recently returned from Serie A. The head to head record favors the home side who won four times and split points once when it had home pitch advantage. For an Italian team playing in the second division, they score a lot of goals when they have the support of their fans.
Frosinone Struggles on the Road
The reason for why they relegated earlier this year, is that they were unable to win games on the road. Even splitting points proved to be almost impossible for Frosinone and these problems continue to plague them. They won’t have home pitch advantage tonight and given their head to head record with Brescia, the visitors will be tempted to aim for a draw.
Risk-averse punters don’t have to back the home side to win, but instead take the cover off a 0:0 Asian handicap. If Brescia draws, the stakes will be returned, but if they win, bet365 will double the investment as the odds sit at 1/1
