Cremonese fans will want a repeat of their previous result, being a 0-1 Serie B triumph versus Cosenza.
In that match, Cremonese had 49% possession and 19 shots on goal with 8 of them on target. The only player to score for Cremonese was Luca Strizzolo (41'). For their opponents, Cosenza got 11 attempts on goal with 5 on target.
Their more recent scorelines show that not much more can be done by the Cremonese rearguard. Grigiorossi have given the opposition little, resulting in the number of goals that have gone in at their end over the course of their past 6 clashes standing at 4. We will have to see if that trend will end up being continued on into this next match.
Going into this one, Cremonese haven't lost in the league to Pordenone in their last 2 games.
Pordenone will come into the clash following a 3-0 Serie B win as they beat Entella in their last game.
In that game, Pordenone had 45% possession and 9 shots on goal with 5 on target. For Pordenone, the goalscorers were Patrick Ciurria (4'), Sebastian Musiolik (31') and Karlo Butić (90'). Entella had 11 shots at goal with 1 on target.
It is worth noting that Pordenone have failed to get amongst the goals in their past six encounters, contributing the poor return of only 4. In those matches, Ramarri del Noncello have also seen the overall goal aggregate of their opponents equal 10.
Coming into this contest, Pordenone are without a win away from home in their last 5 league matches.
