Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Monza and Ascoli, the two promotion-chasing sides, take on each other at Brianteo in what is expected to be an interesting game. Following four consecutive league wins, the Biancorossi were beaten by Como at the weekend to drop to fourth place. Monza aim to climb to automatic promotion berth as soon as possible, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Ascoli. All Colpani, Gytkjaer, and Machin are pushing for a start, while both Salvatore Molina and Pedro Pereira are back from suspension.
The visitors, on the other hand, recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over rock-bottom Pordenone at the weekend, but seeing that they suffered three defeats in the previous four away games, home win should be considered this time out. The likes of Quaranta, Maistro, Leali, Dionisi, and D’Orazio have been struggling with injuries of late, speaking of the away side.
