Ascoli, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 0-1 Serie B victory over Pordenone.
In that game, Ascoli managed 42% possession and 13 shots at goal with 6 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Ascoli was Alessandro Salvi (41'). For their opponents, Pordenone got 9 shots on goal with 2 on target.
It’s been seldom in recent games where Ascoli have shown defensive steel. In fact, Ascoli have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, giving up 6 goals in the process.
Monza will go into the match after a 3-2 Serie B win with the downing of Como in their most recent outing.
In that match, Monza managed 60% possession and 16 shots at goal with 4 on target. For Monza, the goals were scored by Dany Mota (16', 29') and Pepín (88'). At the other end, Como had 13 shots at goal with 4 on target. Alessandro Bellemo (60') and Luca Vignali (65') scored for Como.
A succession of hard-working showings from the Monza defensive unit has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 4 from their previous 6 fixtures in total. In that period of time, their own attack force has managed to score 7. That trend won’t necessarily follow through here, however.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Monza:
- haven't been defeated in their previous 3 league matches away from home.
- are without an away win for the past 7 league matches.
