Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Stadio Benito Stirpe will host Sunday’s Serie A game between Frosinone and Verona, the two teams who are almost level on points in the standings ahead of Matchday 8. The Canarini made a promising start to the season, but they failed to make life difficult for Roma at Stadio Olimpico at the weekend (0-2). Frosinone are eyeing their third win of the process, but they will have to do it without Simone Romagnoli, Abdou Harroui, Francesco Gelli, and Sergio Kalaj.
The Mastini, on the other hand, did well to hold Torino to a goalless draw on Monday evening and seeing that they are likely to stick to their defence-minded approach, we believe that there is a big value in betting on under 2.5 goals. Verona’s injury list is pretty long as well, including the likes of Dawidowicz, Djuric, Cabal, Mboula, Doig, and Braaf.
Highlighted Team (Verona):
Founded back in 1903, Hellas Verona are a professional football club that compete in the Italian Serie A. The “Mastini” are well known for their yellow and blue jerseys and they welcome their opponents at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi. Hellas Verona share rivalry with Chievo Verona and the two local rivals face each other in the “Derby della Scala”.
The first derby of Verona was played on November 18, 2001, with Hellas Verona emerging triumphant (3-2). In 1985 the Mastini won their first and only Scudetto, with the team finishing the season in top position in the Serie A standings, four points clear of second-placed Torino. The likes of Preben Elkjaer, Giuseppe Calderisi, Hans-Peter Briegel, Pietro Fanna and Antonio Di Gennaro led Hellas Verona to the historical success.
However, the most famous footballer who played for Verona is Romania international Adrian Mutu, who scored 16 goals in 57 appearances in the league for the Stadio Marc’ Antonio Bentegodi outfit. Verona will compete in the Italian top flight in the 2017/2018 season as they finished the 2016/2017 Serie B campaign in second position in the table.
