Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have four of Monza’s last six games, including both legs of their play-off semi-final win over Brescia.
  • Pisa, meanwhile, saw goals at both ends in four of their last five regular-season games.
  • Pisa won both head-to-head league meetings 2-1.

Could play-off final opener see goals?

The first leg of the Serie B play-off final sees Monza host Pisa, after Giovanni Stroppa’s hosts overcame Brescia 4-2 on aggregate and Luca D’Angelo’s visitors advanced after a 1-1 aggregate draw with Benevento, courtesy of their league placement. That means the teams to finish third and fourth in the league will do battle for promotion, and recent history suggests it should be entertaining.

The hosts will approach the contest in confident mood after taking 43 points from their 19 regular-season home games, losing just twice, a record only bettered by champions Lecce. Monza also boasted the second-best attacking record in Serie B with 60 goals, and netted four in two games against the division’s joint-third best rearguard in their semi-final win over Brescia. However, both teams have scored in four of Monza’s last six, demonstrating their defensive vulnerability.

Pisa, meanwhile, boasted one of the best defensive records in Serie B with just 35 goals conceded, but significantly more of those (22) were shipped on the road rather than in Tuscany (13). Pisa have an excellent head-to-head record against Monza, beating them 2-1 home and away this term, but saw both teams net in four of their last five league games, and have kept just one clean sheet in their last 10 road trips.

Goals at both ends likely in promotion battle

Given goals at both ends has been a theme of both team’s late-season contests as nerves begin to jangle in the promotion race, and taking into account Pisa’s inability to keep clean sheets on their travels despite their generally strong defensive record, both teams to score looks a strong play.

Meanwhile, Pisa have won just three of their last nine games, while Monza approach this tie as the form team after a run of nine victories in 13, so a 2-1 win for the hosts looks a decent correct score prediction.
