Team News: Entella
Alessandro Capello (Hip Injury), Marco Chiosa (Knock) and Giuseppe De Luca (Adductor problems) will not be taking part for Entella boss Vincenzo Vivarini. Markus Pavic will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: Vicenza
In an otherwise healthy squad, there is just a single fitness worry for the Vicenza gaffer Domenico Di Carlo to be concerned with. Davide Lanzafame (Muscle Injury) misses out for this game. The players ineligible for this match because of suspension are Luca Rigoni and Emanuele Padella.
We’re envisaging that Entella will have a tough ask to break down this Vicenza outfit who we think might score one, at least.
We therefore fancy a hard-fought 0-1 victory for Vicenza at the end of this game.
Hoping for a good game.
