Ascoli head to Stadio Benito Stirpe on Saturday for the Serie B fixture with home team Frosinone.
Our Frosinone v Ascoli tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below - along with the latest match odds.
Frosinone, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 0-2 Serie B success over Venezia.
In that game, Frosinone had 47% possession and 9 shots on goal with 5 on target. For Frosinone, the scorers were Andrija Novakovich (58') and Przemysław Szymiński (71'). At the other end, Venezia had 17 shots at goal with 4 of them on target.
Fewer than three goals per game were seen in 6 of the past 6 meetings where Frosinone have been participants. In terms of the goal weighting in that period, opposition teams scored an aggregate of 4 while Canarini totted up 5. That sort of pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward here, of course.
Their past results show that Frosinone:
- have not lost a league tie with Ascoli in their last 8 games. Quite a long unbeaten run against them.
- have not won at home in their last 4 league games. Things will have to change soon.
Following on from a losing effort in their last game against Lecce in Serie B action, Ascoli and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
In that game, Ascoli had 44% possession and 13 shots on goal with 1 on target. Lecce got 16 attempts at goal with 6 of them on target. Marco Mancosu (54') and Liam Henderson (66') scored for Lecce.
The stats don’t lie, and Ascoli have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 11 goals in total. Defensively, Bianconeri have been far from perfect.
Pre-game facts show that Ascoli:
- have not beaten Frosinone when they have played them away from home in the previous 5 league matches. Not good.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 2 league matches.
Head to head

Team News: Frosinone
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just one fitness concern for the Frosinone boss Alessandro Nesta to be concerned about from of an almost fully healthy squad. Mirko Gori (Shoulder Injury) misses out.
Team News: Ascoli
Owing to a completely healthy squad to choose from, Ascoli manager Valerio Bertotto does not have any fitness worries at all before this game.
When taking all factors into account, Ascoli have it within them to put one past this Frosinone outfit, but that might not quite be as many as the goals that they could concede.
Our selection here is for a narrow 2-1 winning margin for Frosinone at full-time. Let’s just see how this one goes.
