Our prediction for this Serie B match:
All eyes will be on Stadio Benito Stirpe when Frosinone and Genoa square off against each other in the Serie B derby. Frosinone are eager to retain top position and they must be high on spirits following back-to-back wins over Reggina and Pisa. Karlo Lulic misses out with an ACL injury, while both Anthony Oyono and Samuele Mulattieri are major doubts.
The Rossoblu, on the other hand, secured automatic Serie A promotion thanks to a 2-1 win over Ascoli. Considering that both sides will be with guards down in Saturday’s derby, we believe that there is a big value in betting on over 2.5 goals. Marko Pajac misses out with an ACL injury, while fellow midfielder Manolo Portanova is a major doubt with personal reasons. You should bear in mind that Genoa defeated Frosinone 2-1 in their last encounter at the venue.
