Pro Vercelli welcome the visitors Virtus Entella in the Italian Serie C Group A – Round 7. The match will be held on Tuesday, March, 19th, at the Stadio Silvio Piola (Vercelli).
The hosting Pro Vercelli, guided by Vito Grieco, take the 4th line in the Serie C Group A standings with a tally of 50 points. They are 2 points off the third-placed Siena and 5 points off the 2nd Piacenza. The visitors Virtus Entella, headed by Roberto Boscaglia, lead the table, counting 57 points. Both sides have spare rounds to play: 2 and 3 respectively. Therefore, their coming meeting does not only present a clash of the last year downgraders, this is also a head-to-head between the best group’s outfits. Notably, the short teams’ historical record suggests a balance – either opponent won 4 times, and 5 games ended level. After the last year 1:1 draw in Piedmont, Entella won Vercelli on their home soil, 3:2. Relegated, the sides did not meet in the first Serie C term because of Entella’s legal case, as they hoped to be back to the Serie B through an appeal. The teams clashed in Genova in February. Entella ended victors, 2:1. Now the sides will hold the postponed September match.

Apart from the defeat to the ‘Black Devils’, Vercelli have recently conceded in 2 encounters, – to Pisa (1:2) and Novara (1:2) – but they managed to psych up. In the last home fixture, Grieco has intensified his midfield, and the ‘Lions’ have beaten Arzachena in the air (4:0). The hosts’ ultimate goal at present is not only to take revenge but get as close to their main rival as possible, to run 1st in the end. No doubt, both teams are keen on the top tier in the group, as none want to take risks at playoffs. Vercelli will play aggressively against Entella. After the blistering start to the campaign, the visitors made a few slipups. Gladly, their defeat to Сuneo (2:0) was followed by a victory over Pontedera (3:0). In the last outing, the ‘Black Devils’ ended level against the defensive Alessandria, quite a positive result, but 2 points above the closest pursuer is not enough to be fine with a draw now. Entella need to win in the coming trip.
Both sides have strong attacking lines (by Serie C standards) and suffer no squad issues. The match is predicted to be filled with goals. The offered high odds on the goal-exchange seem totally unclear. The opponents netted each other last campaign, and they did so a month ago. Obviously, Entella and Vercelli are capable of producing a goal-exchange for the fourth time in a row.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score.
