As part of the 37th round of the Italian Serie B, Cosenza will host Monza. Do the hosts have a chance?
"Cosenza" has almost no chance to finish the season in the safe zone, because it is behind the comfortable 15th position by six points. Therefore, the team is preparing for the play-offs for survival in Series B, taking the 17th position with 35 points. In the round before last, Cosenza defeated Pescara at home (3-0), and in the previous match she was already in the role of the victim, losing 0-4 to Empoli.
And at Monza, it's the opposite. She claims to be promoted in the class, being in the fourth position, which allows her to start in the playoffs from the 1/2 final stage. However, all is not lost, there is an opportunity to break into Serie A directly, and this requires finishing in second place, two points behind. In the last three rounds, Monza made no mistakes, coping with Cremonese (2-1), Salernitana (3-1) and Lecce (1-0) in turn.
Statistics and figures:
- Cosenza have lost four of their last five games;
- Monza has a 3-match winning streak;
- In the first round match, Cosenza and Monza shared the points-2: 2.
Monza are in excellent form at the end of the regular season and are close to reaching Serie A directly from second place. To do this, you must win in the two remaining matches, in the so-called finals. I believe that Monza will be able to cope with the first one, as it is against Cosenza, which will have to fight for survival through play-offs.
