In that match, Cremonese managed 42% possession and 19 attempts at goal with 5 on target. For their opponents, Monza got 9 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. Davide Frattesi (34'), Dany Mota (38') and Mario Sampirisi (59' Own goal) scored for Monza.
Over their past 6 games, Fabio Pecchia's Cremonese have hit the target 8 times resulting in an average number of goals per match of 1.33.
Heading into this fixture, Cremonese are undefeated in their previous 3 league matches at home.
Reggina go into this meeting following on from a 2-1 Serie B win against Reggiana in their last outing.
In that match, Reggina had 56% possession and 6 attempts at goal with 2 on target. For Reggina, the goalscorers were Adriano Montalto (5') and Rigoberto Rivas (87'). At the other end, Reggiana got 7 shots on goal with 2 on target. Augustus Kargbo (45') was the scorer for Reggiana.
A succession of very capable displays by the Reggina defensive players has seen their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 4 from their previous 6 fixtures overall. Over that same time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 9. Such a trend isn’t assured to be continued here, of course.
Ahead of this clash, Reggina haven't been defeated in their previous 2 away league matches.

Team News: Cremonese
Looking at personnel, there is just the sole fitness concern for the Cremonese gaffer Fabio Pecchia to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed squad. Luca Coccolo (Metatarsal bone bruise) won’t play.
Team News: Reggina
Reggina manager Marco Baroni has to choose a team with limited availability. Kingsley Michael (Unknown Injury) and Ricardo Faty (Unknown Injury) are not able to play.
In our opinion, Reggina should get enough chances to break down this Cremonese lineup, but that may not prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We reckon that it will be a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 victory for Cremonese by the conclusion of the game.
