Pisa will be looking for a repeat result of the 1-0 Serie B triumph over AS Bari.
It has been all too rare in recent games that Pisa have kept a clean sheet. The reality is that Pisa have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 8 goals during that time. We will just have to see whether or not that trend can be sustained in this game.
Heading into this fixture, Pisa have left without a victory over AS Bari in their previous 7 league matches.
Previously, AS Bari drew 0-0 in the Serie B match with Ternana.
In that game, AS Bari had 59% possession and 10 shots at goal with 1 on target. Ternana had 13 shots on goal with 2 on target.
In 5 of the past six games involving AS Bari, a relatively low number of goals have been hit between them and opposing teams. The overall average goals scored per game in that period comes to a mere 1.17, with the number of goals averaged by Galletti standing at 0.33.
Coming into this clash, AS Bari have not been beaten in their last 2 away league matches.
Head to head
A glance at their prior head to head meetings going back to 01/11/2008 tells us that Pisa have won 0 of them and AS Bari 3, with the number of draws standing at 3.
Fans would have hoped for more goals in them, as well, with a sum of 5 scored between them in total.
The last league match between these clubs was Serie B match day 34 on 23/04/2023 which finished with the scoreline of Pisa 1-2 AS Bari.

The match was refereed by Andrea Colombo.
Team News: Pisa
The Pisa manager Alberto Aquilani will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this match owing to a completely injury-free group available for selection. Hjörtur Hermannsson will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We think that Nerazzurri will probably make use of the 4-4-2 system this time with Nicolas, Arturo Calabresi, Maxime Leverbe, Simone Canestrelli, Pietro Beruatto, Marco D'Alessandro, Miguel Veloso, Marius Marin, Mattia Valoti, Alessandro Arena and Stefano Moreo.
Team News: AS Bari
With a fully injury-free squad to pick from, the AS Bari manager Michele Mignani has zero fitness worries to report ahead of this clash.
There’s a good chance that Galletti seem likely to make use of a 4-3-1-2 system by sending out Brenno, Mehdi Dorval, Zan Zuzek, Francesco Vicari, Giacomo Ricci, Gennaro Acampora, Raffaele Maiello, Mattia Maita, Giuseppe Sibilli, Marco Nasti and Gregorio Morachioli.
We’re of the view that AS Bari will have to play well to see themselves scoring against this Pisa team who we think might well be able to grind out a win.
We’re therefore anticipating a narrow 1-0 win for Pisa at the end of the 90 minutes.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes.
