Ascoli vs Avellino
Odds dropping in favour of hosts for this important match for safety among two etams both just on relegation line.
But Ascoli shown improvements in last months, with only two defeats - against second on table Parma and in form Foggia - in last nine rounds, while Avellino - only one win in last 12 rounds, only one point gained in last four matches - even at home in last round seemed not able to react against Cittadella.
Ascoli has an home balance of 6-6-7 22/23 but in last five home matches loose only against Parma and gained three wins. Avellino is the second worst away team ( 2-7-10 17/32).
About missings, Carpani ( midf.15+8 3g), Favilli ( second scorer 5g), Mengoni ( def.12+1 1g), Martinho ( midf.9) remain all out for hosts, only Mengoni is a recent miss but he already didn't play in draw against Entella, while the other players are out at least for at least one month, so they had no impact in recent satisfying run of the team.
On the other front Avellino recovers Bidaoui ( att.16+7 3g out for more then one month) and Nigawa ( def.31), but continue to miss various players.
De Risio ( midf.13+2) and Falasco ( def.9+10) are new missing, while Pecorini ( def.6+3), Rizzato (def.13), Lasik ( midf.7+3), Cabezas ( midf.2+5) remain all longterm injuried. Finally D'Angelo ( midf.26+3 3g) is doubtful.
Very important match for both teams, but at my eyes Ascoli has something more to gain a win here.
