Cosenza Calcio vs Trapani Calcio betting odds

Trapani Calcio have taken just one point from their last three Coppa Italia. Serie C matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Trapani Calcio are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions Cosenza Calcio should prove no easy feat either – Trapani Calcio haven’t won against any Coppa Italia. Serie C leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Cosenza Calcio have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Cosenza Calcio dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Coppa Italia. Serie C’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

Cosenza Calcio are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about Cosenza Calcio and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in Cosenza Calcio’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Trapani Calcio are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Trapani Calcio took a point away from Cosenza Calcio (1-1 draw).

Notably, Cosenza Calcio’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Cosenza Calcio have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Coppa Italia. Serie C away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Trapani Calcio, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Trapani Calcio getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Trapani Calcio are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), Cosenza Calcio hold the best away record in the Coppa Italia. Serie C (W8 D2 L1). Trapani Calcio’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with Cosenza Calcio’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the Cosenza Calcions could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 Cosenza Calcio win at 15/2 with bet365.
