Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Sunday’s football game at Brianteo pits together Monza and Verona, the two bottom-table sides. The Biancorossi have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team losing to Empoli, beating Monza, while sharing the spoils with Udinese. Papu Gomez remains on the sidelines with a long-term suspension, while Gianluca Caprari misses out with an ACL injury.
The Mastini, on the other hand, aim to escape the danger zone. As both sides will go for a victory in Sunday’s encounter, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Tomas Suslov is banned for the match due to the accumulation of yellow cards, while goalkeeper continues to miss out with a shoulder injury. In the first half of the season Monza defeated Verona 3-1 in the “City of Love”, which is yet another reason why BTTS betting option should be considered.
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.
