Team News: Perugia
Perugia manager Serse Cosmi has no fitness concerns at all ahead of this clash owing to a fully injury-free group available to select from. Marco Albertoni is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Team News: Trapani
Owing to an otherwise available group of players, there’s just the lone fitness problem for the Trapani manager Fabrizio Castori to contend with. Marco Moscati (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be in action.
We’re of the opinion that Trapani are capable enough to score a goal against this Perugia outfit, but it may not be enough to avoid a loss.
Our selection here is for both teams to score in a 2-1 victory for Perugia at the end of the 90 minutes. Should be a good one.
