The hosts can go a long way towards securing their Serie A safety with a win over the basement club today.
With difficult away trips to relegation"rivals" Parma and Reggina up next, they know how important a victory is, they are not prolific winners and are the division's draw specialists. However, surely the visitors will be forced forward, given their dire situation and this game should provide a positive result.
Ascoli are without 5 players for sure and that number could rise to as many as 8, with several facing late tests.
In Serie A, it normally pays to follow the money and the home team have been very well supported in recent days. When I looked at Betfair early this morning 97% of the £253k matched, had been staked on Siena.
5 points Siena -1/2 ball 1.68 asian line.
