Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Monza play host to Ascoli at their Brianteo in what is expected to be a very entertaining game. Monza are determined to return to the Serie A, and it remains to be seen if new signing Mario Balotelli is going to help them meet the goal. Paolo Berlusconi’s team crushed Entella 5-0 in their last home game, and it is no wonder they are seen as favourites to beat Ascoli in the midweek clash.
Scaglia is banned to the hosts, while D Errico, Finotto, and Paletta remain in the recovery room. Super Mario could make his Monza debut against Ascoli. The visitors, on the other hand, failed to impress in back-to-back defeats to Cosenza and Vicenza, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the promotion-chasing hosts. Lico is suspended for the visitors, while Vellios is out of contention through injury.
