Bari won on a convincing 3-0 margin when the teams met in the Serie B this season.
Also, Bari won 3 of the last 5 league fixtures against Ascoli, drew and lost 1 each.
Neither managers want to end up losing this fixture as their seasonal targets are at stake. Ascoli are desperate to move away from the foot of the table, while the points here are vital Bari in the promotion play-off bid. Therefore, this will be a cagey affair.
Having said that, punters must consider Bari as the better team in this contest. Ascoli has been largely inconsistent and have managed only a handful points from home games this season. So, the visitors look good to bag a narrow 1-0 win on Wednesday night.
