🗞️ Team News: Reggina
Joel Obi (Leg Injury) and Gabriele Gori (Unknown Injury) are not available for Reggina boss Filippo Inzaghi. The players who will not be able to play in this game through being suspended are Lorenzo Crisetig, Thiago Cionek and Jérémy Ménez.
In our view, Gli Amaranto look set to line up in a 3-5-2 formation for this game, beginning the first half with Nikita Contini, Giuseppe Loiacono, Emanuele Terranova, Riccardo Gagliolo, Niccolò Pierozzi, Giovanni Fabbian, Daniele Liotti, Hernani, Gianluca Di Chiara, David Strelec and Luigi Canotto.
ℹ️ Team News: Ascoli
Owing to an otherwise full-strength group of players, there’s only the sole fitness worry for the Ascoli gaffer Roberto Breda to contend with. Amato Ciciretti (Unknown Injury) won’t be playing here.
We reckon that Bianconeri seem likely to begin the game with a 4-3-1-2 system by sending out Nicola Leali, Claud Adjapong, E. F. Botteghin, Lorenco Simic, Simone Giordano, Federico Proia, Marcel Buchel, Fabrizio Caligara, Pedro Mendes, Francesco Forte and Federico Dionisi.
We’re of the opinion that Ascoli should get enough chances to find the net against this Reggina side, however that may not be enough to avoid defeat.
We’re going for a 2-1 victory for Reggina when all is said and done. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
