Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Ascoli will look to make amends for the Coppa Italia defeat to Udinese when they take on Cosenza at Stadio Cino e Lillo Del Duca in the opening match of the season. I Picchi played no more than two pre-season games, with the team beating Viterbese, while losing to Napoli. Since Ascoli boss Andrea Sottil has a full squad to choose from, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts, who have big ambitions for the 2021/22 Serie B campaign.
Cosenza, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Fiorentina, and seeing that the lack of fitness could prove to be a big problem for Marco Zaffaroni’s troops, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. Cosenza defender Andrea Tritiello is out of contention through suspension.
