However, there is a rule, which many people have missed ... Serie B rules grant direct promotion to first- and second-placed teams, a third berth being available to the winner of a play-off among the four runner-up sides. A third-placed side, however, can secure direct promotion by leading the fourth-placed by at least 10 points.
Following the weekend results, Genoa are now 11 points ahead of Mantova in 4th spot, Napoli could increase their advantage to 10 points with a win this evening. What an incentive !
Both sides are missing a couple of players, but Del Nero and Moreco for the hosts, may be the more sorely missed.
Brescia are 5 points adrift of the final play-off spot, with 4 rounds to play after today and facing a very difficult trip to Bologna, at the weekend. Therefore, the draw has only limited value for them, which is something of a bonus for our selection.
With Napoli in an identical position and only Juve claiming more away wins, we should have two teams looking for maximum points. I favour the visitors, it will not be easy, but they have the greater motivation and look ready for the return to the big time.
