My bet is based on few simple reasons.
Novara is a team with bigger potential, compared with Mantova and there is no doubt, that the hosts will seek immediate return in the Italian Serie B.
The White-Blues showed good football in their previous seven games at this stadium, as they managed to win five of those seven encounters, while two games ended with draws (5-2-0).
In the matter of fact, this team really impressed in its last two games at “Stadio Silvio Piola”, scoring eight goals against Como (4-0) and AlbinoLeffe (4-1).
Mantova is a team, whose potential will probably be enough for a place in the middle of the standings in this league, but like during the previous few seasons, the guests will rely mostly on their games at “Stadio Danilo Martelli”.
Another reason for my bet can be found in the fact, that the guests will be without some important players like Gaetano Caridi (m / 3 goals), Matteo Paro (m / 1 goal) and Niccolo Zanetti (f / 3 goals).
