The best Lecco vs Ascoli predictions and picks

Ascoli to win

Lecco haven’t adapted well to life in Serie B and have just one point to their name in six matches. They have played less games than the rest of the league, which means they will have plenty of opportunities to play catch-up but the signs aren’t great. Ascoli, meanwhile, are unbeaten in their last four matches and are therefore in good shape to win this one. Lecco won’t go the season winless but we can’t seem them breaking their duck here.


Although Lecco are yet to win a match in Serie B, they have looked pretty good at home in terms of overall play. They have scored four goals in three matches on home turf, but the problem has been keeping the ball out of their own net. Ascoli have had similar defensive issues and between them both teams have conceded a combined 25 goals already. This will be an open match and goalscoring opportunities should come at both ends.

Over 0.5 first half goals

Matches involving both Lecco and Ascoli frequently have goals scored in the opening 45 minutes. They have played a combined 15 Serie B matches this season and in eleven of those a goal has been scored before the break. Based on those percentages, odds of 1/2 (1.5) represent good value and therefore a good bet.

Lecco vs Ascoli: Preview and team news


Lecco came up from Serie C last season by the skin of their teeth so it is hardly surprising that they are struggling with the demands of Serie B football thus far. They are having to play their home games away from their usual stadium too due to the Rigamonti-Ceppi not being up to standards which has made life doubly difficult. They will be hoping that one win will act as a springboard for greater things.


Ascoli finished in midtable last season and look on course for a similar season again this year in Serie B. Although it’s too early to rule them out of a playoff push, or a slump down to the table, they look too inconsistent and too weak at the back to be taken too seriously. However, at the top end of the pitch they have too much quality to be relegation candidates.
