Football Prediction of the Day Genoa vs Ascoli
We have a very good odds for a goal scored by the guests in this game and I think it is a valuable bet.
Genoa has scored goals from home and from a Serie C team in the preceding Cup stage, and Ascoli is a redoubtable team that can pose real problems.
Ascoli has scored every time in the last 6 matches of the B Series, while Genoa is going through a weak momentum and has scored in 6 of the 7 matches played at home this season.
Also, Genoa is without a 5-stage victory in the championship, so Ascoli, a team that will surely get more motivated in the field can take advantage and register.
Bet Tips: Ascoli over 0.5 goals
