Team News: Ascoli
Ascoli manager Andrea Sottil has zero fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this clash thanks to a completely healthy group to choose from.
Team News: Vicenza
Out of a mainly available squad, there is just the sole fitness issue for the Vicenza boss Domenico Di Carlo to be concerned with. Davide Lanzafame (Muscle Injury) misses out for this game. The players who will not be able to play in this game through being suspended are Riccardo Meggiorini and Jari Vandeputte.
We’re thinking that Vicenza and Ascoli should both get enough opportunities to score, although it’s hard to separate the two.
A close call, and we think a draw is quite likely. That is why we are leaning toward a hard-fought 1-1 scoreline when all is said and done.
