As the international break comes to an end, Serie B is set to recommence. On Saturday, Bari will take on Modena with both teams currently in midtable meaning a win for either team could propel them towards the playoffs while a loss would leave them looking over their shoulders. Ahead of the match, here are some free tips and predictions.
The best Bari vs Modena predictions and picks
A clash between two sides in midtable is rarely an exciting affair and when you look at how both Bari and Modena have fared this season, you’d be hard-pressed to lean more towards one than the other. Bari, in particular, have played the entire season so far with the mindset of “do not lose” rather than “win at all costs”. In nine matches, they have won one, lost one and drawn seven. Modena, meanwhile, have drawn three of their opening eight games.
Despite both teams being draw specialists in Serie B, they haven’t been particularly shy in front of goal. Bari have scored in each of their last five matches and have only failed to find the back of the net twice all season. Modena are a little less prolific but have still scored in five of their eight games. What’s more, games between Bari and Modena are usually lively affairs with all five of their previous meetings seeing goals at both ends of the pitch.
Under 0.5 first half goals
Both of these teams are very much second-half outfits who do most of their goalscoring after the break. Modena haven’t scored a single goal in the first half of any of their last four matches and all confidence seems to have drained from the squad. Bari have a marginally better first half record but even they have four first half goals in nine Serie B matches.
Bari vs Modena: Preview and team news
After finishing 3rd last season, Bari would have been hoping for a better start to the season as they look to go one better this time around. While they may be in 12th, they have only lost one game so if they can go on a winning streak and build confidence, they will be right up there again before Christmas.
There is less expectation on Modena when it comes to seeking promotion to Serie A, and they haven’t been in Italy’s top division since 2004. It was only four years ago that they were in Serie D so, for now, they are happy enough to establish themselves as a solid Serie B side. Despite that, they will travel to Bari on Saturday determined to give a good account of themselves.
Bari vs Modena head-to-head record and form
