View all Ascoli v Reggiana tips, stats and our pre-match poll below (including the best match odds).
Ascoli will be hoping to bounce back here following the 1-0 Serie B defeat last time out to Frosinone.
In that game, Ascoli managed 56% possession and 20 shots on goal with 4 on target. Frosinone had 12 shots at goal with 5 on target. Alessandro Salvi (75') was the scorer for Frosinone.
It’s been seldom in recent games where Ascoli have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Bianconeri have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 11 goals during that time.
Heading into this fixture, Ascoli have not won at home in their last 3 league games.
Following on from suffering a loss in their previous game against Chievo Verona in Serie B competition, Reggiana and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that match, Reggiana managed 64% possession and 14 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. On the other side, Chievo Verona had 17 shots at goal with 10 on target. Luca Garritano (25') was the scorer for Chievo Verona.
The stats tell the story, and Reggiana have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 8 goals in total. Defensively, I Granata could really do with shoring things up. That trend isn’t assured to be continued into this match, however.
Team News: Ascoli
Ascoli manager Valerio Bertotto will be grateful not to have any fitness worries at all ahead of this match thanks to a completely healthy group to pick from.
Team News: Reggiana
In an otherwise healthy group, there is just the sole fitness problem for the Reggiana gaffer Massimiliano Alvini to contend with. Giacomo Venturi (Cheekbone Fracture) won’t be in action.
Here is a game where Reggiana could find themselves struggling to see themselves scoring against this Ascoli side who we think will likely get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
That’s why we have predicted a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 victory for Ascoli when all is said and done.
Hoping for a good game.
