Team News: Trapani
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just the lone fitness concern for the Trapani manager Fabrizio Castori to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength set of players. Marco Moscati (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t play.

Thanks to a fully injury-free group available for selection, Crotone boss Giovanni Stroppa has zero fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this match.
