We’re heading to Italy, and Kev’s taking us to see a football legend in action as Frosinone visit Cosenza.
Visitors to extend winning streak
Cosenza v Frosinone
Friday 21 February, 20:00
A Cypriot sickener for us last night, as APOEL were smashed 3-0 at home by Basel. We move on swiftly.
We’ll head to Italy, because promotion-chasing Frosinone are visiting Cosenza, and I believe the visitors are overpriced for the win.
Frosinone have had a recent taste of the Serie A big time, and they are pushing hard for a return to the top flight. Coached by Italian defensive legend Alessandro Nesta, the Canaries have won their last four Serie B matches, all by a 1-0 scoreline. They haven’t lost in the league since Boxing Day, and they are only outside the top two on goal difference. They have kept clean sheets in four of their last five away games, and they have the second-best defensive record in the division.
Cosenza aren’t enjoying themselves quite so much. They are in the automatic relegation zone, and have lost five of their last six matches. At the Stadio San Vito-Luigi Marulla, they have lost three of their last four. The Wolves finished in mid-table in Serie B last term, and I suspect they’d accept a similar finish if you offered it to them now. They have lost 11 of their 24 league games this term.
Frosinone’s games tend to be pretty tight, so I think it’s sensible to back them Draw No Bet here at [1.83]. If the game is drawn, our stake is returned.
