With eight rounds left in the regular season, 10 teams compete for three of the six spots that will grant them the chance to fight for promotion. Ternana and Brescia are two of the squads hoping to make it to the playoffs, and tonight they go head to head in a game that nobody can afford to lose.
Match: Ternana vs Brescia
Odds: Sporting Bet 3.00
The visitors are currently standing on the last place that would grant passage to the playoffs, but their advantage over the closest rival is of only one point. What is encouraging for Brescia is that they won three consecutive games away from home, a real performance for Serie B. Their offensive is finally clicking, with Corvia and Caracciolo scoring a combined 19 goals and the two strikers are expected to pair upfront once again.
Ternana on the other hand relies almost exclusively on a rock-solid defense, and the fact that they’ve conceded only two goals in the last six games speaks for itself. Litteri and Nole are their best bet in the offensive but the two forwards have scored just one goal in over a month. Add to this the fact that Ternana is yet to win a game against Brescia and it is easy to explain why coach Toscano is reluctant to field an offensive formation. He is expected to start with a 4-5-1 squad and replace Litteri with Nole in the second half if the striker fails to find his way to the net.
At a first glance it might seem like Ternana will have to come out firing on all cylinders from the first minute, as they have home pitch advantage and need to close a five points gap. The truth is that the hosts would regard a draw as a success given their opponents’ form and head to head results. Sporting Bet offers terrific odds of 3.00 for an undecided game and they make it worth taking the chance.
