Ternana vs Avelino Betting Preview
Avelino makes another attempt at reaching the playoffs for Serie A after finishing the last season just three points short of the sixth place. Even if they make it that far, it will be very difficult to outshine three competitors and they will need to transfer a couple of experienced players. So far so good, as they won three games this season and are yet to lose a match in front of their fans, but tonight they have the tough job of winning on the road at Ternana.

Ternana vs Avelino Betting Tips
Ternana doesn't have high expectations and unlike their opponents, they are not going to aim for promotion at the end of the season. On the other hand, they don't expect to fight to avoid relegation either and so far they are falling behind schedule. Two wins in seven games is not enough to keep them afloat, especially with home games yet to produce a victory.
On the bright side, Ternana has the best defensive of all teams playing in Serie B as they allowed just three goals so far and are one of the few squads undefeated on the road. Scrapping points is what they are best at, so tonight a draw wouldn't be regarded as a tragedy, despite having home pitch advantage.
Avenatti and Ceravolo are by far their best strikers and both of them will play tonight, in the same 4-4-2 starting formation that has been used in the first six games. Each of them has scored twice and the hosts hope that they will find their way to the net at least once, as a single goal could be enough against Avelino
Italian teams are playing defensive football and Avelino makes no exception, especially with the visitors having just one reliable striker. Luckily for them, Castaldo is truly a formidable forward, having scored four goals in five games and all of them were the opening goes of the match.
- The hosts will use two strikers while the visitors will rely on Castaldo, but both of them will emphasize the importance of rock-solid defenses.
- In 10 head to head matches, the most often result was the draw, with each team winning three games.
Ternana vs Avelino Betting Prediction
Ternana has home pitch advantage, which is very important in the Italian second division, but the visitors are in better form. Both teams will be prudent in the first half and they won't take too many chances unless someone scores a lucky goal, early on. The draw is the most likely result, but risk-averse punters are encouraged to bet on the double chance wager, Avelino or Draw.
