Our Reggiana v Ascoli predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below - as well as up-to-date odds.
Reggiana will be wanting a better result here after a 2-0 Serie B loss in their previous game against Cosenza.
In that match, Reggiana managed 49% possession and 8 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. Cosenza got 13 attempts at goal with 6 of them on target. Idriz Voca (23') and Gennaro Tutino (83') scored for Cosenza.
Over their past 6 games, Alessandro Nesta's Reggiana have found the net a combined total of 7 times, with that being an average number of goals per match equal to 1.17.
Going into this one, Reggiana are unbeaten in their previous 5 home league matches.
Following on from being defeated in their last game at the hands of Como in Serie B action, Ascoli and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
In that match, Ascoli had 47% possession and 8 attempts at goal with 4 on target. On the other side, Como got 9 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. Patrick Cutrone (4') was the scorer for Como.
The stats tell the story, and Ascoli have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 7 goals in all. Defensively, Ascoli have been far from perfect. That trend won’t necessarily follow through here, though.
Head to head
The previous league meeting between these sides was Serie B match day 23 on 14/02/2021 when it finished Reggiana 1-0 Ascoli.

Team News: Reggiana
Przemyslaw Szyminski (Muscle fatigue), Filippo Romagna (Muscle injury), Stefano Pettinari (Stress reaction of the bone), Antonio Vergara (Cruciate ligament tear) and Luca Vido (Cruciate ligament injury) will be missing for Reggiana manager Alessandro Nesta.
We are thinking that I Granata look set to kick off with a 4-3-3 formation this time, utilising Francesco Bardi, Riccardo Fiamozzi, Paolo Rozzio, A. Marcandalli, Edoardo Pieragnolo, Manolo Portanova, Domen Črnigoj, Alessandro Bianco, Janis Antiste, Cedric Gondo and Natan Girma.
Team News: Ascoli
We’re of the thinking that Bianconeri will likely make use of a 4-4-2 lineup, starting the game with Davide Barosi, Brian Bayeye, Danilo Quaranta, Giuseppe Bellusci, Nicola Falasco, Vincenzo Millico, Francesco Di Tacchio, Samuel Giovane, Eddy Gnahore, Ilija Nestorovski and Pedro Mendes.
In our opinion, Ascoli will manage to score against this Reggiana side, however it is unlikely to prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We think that it’s going to be both teams to score in a 2-1 victory for Reggiana at the end of this one. Should be an interesting one.
