Enjoy the following Cosenza vs Ascoli betting tips.

Cosenza to win

Although Cosenza weren’t able to beat Ascoli last campaign, they’ve had a much stronger pre-season campaign compared to their opponents. They managed to take Sassuolo to extra time before falling to a 5-2 defeat, with the tired legs unable to keep up with the Serie A team. However, Cosenza have remained unbeaten during pre-season and have found their scoring ability which was lacking last year. If they can continue this form, they present good value against an Ascoli side which have lost four of their last five matches.

Both Teams To Score

It won’t be entirely easy for Cosenza to pick up all three points, however. Last year they shared a 1-1 draw, while Ascoli won 3-1 in Cosenza’s back yard in 2022, and both sides will be capable of exploiting vulnerable defences on Saturday. Yet Ascoli showed plenty of weaknesses to their defensive game when conceding three to Verona in the Coppa Italia, and with Cosenza conceding five, (three of which in extra time), I’m expecting goals at both ends.

Over 2.5 Goals

With two leaky defences going up against each other, and with Cosenza’s newly found confidence in front of goal, it makes to back over 2.5 goals. This landed comfortably in this tie last year and with plenty of goalmouth drama in the Coppa Italia, expect that to leak into their opening Serie B fixture.

Cosenza vs Ascoli Match Preview, Analysis, and Latest Team News


As pointed out, Cosenza enjoyed a good pre-season, winning two and drawing one of their three matches. Although Sassuolo managed to stamp their authority over them in added time in the cup, Cosenza showed that they can be more competitive than last season which bodes well after a poor campaign.


Ascoli, on the other hand, have had a poor pre-season. A victory over minnows US Tolentino was expected, but two consecutive defeats to Gubbio and Recanatese showed weakenesses to their game. Verona easily dispatched them in the cup, and Cosenza will be looking to exploit their defence on Saturday evening.
