Team News: Reggina
There aren’t many selection issues, with just the sole fitness concern for the Reggina boss Filippo Inzaghi to be concerned with thanks to an otherwise robust squad. Andrey Galabinov (Achilles tendon problems) won’t play.
It seems likely that Gli Amaranto may well opt for a 4-3-3 formation for this one, beginning the first half with Simone Colombi, Niccolo Pierozzi, Thiago Cionek, Riccardo Gagliolo, Gianluca Di Chiara, Giovanni Fabbian, Lorenzo Crisetig, Zan Majer, Luigi Canotto, Jeremy Menez and Rigoberto Rivas.
Team News: Cittadella
Thanks to a mainly full-strength group of players, there’s only a single fitness problem for the Cittadella gaffer Edoardo Gorini to be concerned about. Carlos Embalo (Muscle Injury) won’t be playing here.
We’re of the thinking that Granata appear most likely to utilise a 4-3-3 lineup with a starting lineup of Elhan Kastrati, Tommaso Cassandro, Dario Del Fabro, Domenico Frare, Daniele Donnarumma, Giuseppe Carriero, Nicola Pavan, Simone Branca, Mirko Antonucci, Raul Asencio and Enrico Baldini.
In our view, Cittadella would be disappointed if they were not to put one past this Reggina lineup, but that might not quite be enough to avoid defeat.
We are anticipating a close game with a 2-1 win for Reggina at the end of the 90 minutes. Should be a good one.
