Como have not been in good attacking form in more recent games. Their goals record equals just 4 versus opposing sides during the course of their previous 6 outings. In those games, Como have also seen the tally of goals against them come to 13. Previous results aside, we must now wait to see whether the trend shall be replicated in this next game or not.
Ahead of this clash, Como are without a home win in the past 6 matches in the league. Their supporters are understandably frustrated.
In their previous 6 clashes, SPAL have amassed a tally of 9 goals. SPAL have also managed to score in every single one of those games. In that time, their defenders have seen 7 goals go into their own net.
A look at their previous results shows us that SPAL:
- haven't been defeated in their previous 4 league matches away from home.
- are without a win away from home in their last 2 league games.

It looks as if I Lariani look set to opt for a 4-4-2 formation for this one, utilising Simone Ghidotti, Luca Vignali, Cas Odenthal, Luis Binks, Nikolas Ioannou, Paolo Farago, Cesc Fabregas, Daniele Baselli, Alex Blanco, Leonardo Mancuso and Patrick Cutrone.
Team News: SPAL
Owing to a fully healthy squad available to choose from, the SPAL manager Roberto Venturato has no fitness worries to report coming into this match.
It’s our belief that SPAL appear most likely to utilise a 4-3-1-2 system, choosing Enrico Alfonso, Lorenzo Dickmann, Marco Varnier, Biagio Meccariello, A. Tripaldelli, Federico Proia, Salvatore Esposito, Luca Valzania, Fabio Maistro, Andrea La Mantia and Gabriele Moncini.
We envisage that SPAL and Como may both struggle to make a breakthrough here.
At this stage, it appears to have the makings of a possible draw. We therefore see a very competitive game with a 0-0 scoreline at full-time.
