Team News: Como
The Como manager Giacomo Gattuso doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all before this clash owing to a fully injury-free group to pick from.
Team News: Alessandria
In an otherwise healthy group, there’s only a single fitness worry for the Alessandria manager Moreno Longo to contend with. Simone Sini (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be in action.
We feel that in this game, Alessandria should have enough to put one past this Como lineup, although that isn’t expected to be enough to avoid a loss.
We are anticipating a close game with a 2-1 advantage for Como at the end of the 90 minutes. There looks to be little in this one.
