Team News: Südtirol-Alto Adige
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just one fitness concern for the Südtirol-Alto Adige gaffer Pierpaolo Bisoli to be concerned about due to a largely intact squad. Shaka Mawuli Eklu (Sideband tear in the knee) is out of contention.
We think that Biancorossi will probably kick off with a 4-3-1-2 system for the game featuring Giacomo Poluzzi, Filippo De Col, Giovanni Zaro, Marco Curto, Filippo Berra, Fabian Tait, H. N. Caviglia, Luca Belardinelli, Matteo Rover, Raphael Odogwu and Simone Mazzocchi.
Team News: Ascoli
Ascoli boss Cristian Bucchi has some current player fitness concerns. Marcel Büchel (Unknown Injury) and Eddy Gnahoré (Unknown Injury) miss out here. Michele Collocolo will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
It’s our belief that Bianconeri appear most likely to play in a 3-5-2 system, giving starts to Enrico Guarna, Lorenco Simic, E. F. Botteghin, Danilo Quaranta, Marcello Falzerano, Marcel Buchel, Mirko Eramo, Fabrizio Caligara, Samuel Giovane, Pedro Mendes and Federico Dionisi.
We believe that Ascoli could well find it tough to get anything against this Südtirol-Alto Adige side who should end up scoring and staying ahead.
We’re therefore expecting a narrow 1-0 winning score for Südtirol-Alto Adige at the end of the 90 minutes.
Hoping for a good game.
