Entella will be looking for an improved result here following the 2-0 Coppa Italia loss in their previous game against Torino.
In that game, Entella had 41% possession and 2 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Torino got 9 shots at goal with 4 on target. Simone Zaza (28') and Federico Bonazzoli (30') scored for Torino.
It has been a rare occasion in recent times where Entella have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that Entella have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 13 goals during that time. However, we will just have to wait and see if such a trend might be replicated in this next match.
Going into this encounter, Entella are without a win at home for the past 8 league matches. It’s been disappointing.
SPAL come into this game following a 2-0 Coppa Italia win in the defeat of Monza in their previous outing.
In that game, SPAL managed 55% possession and 14 attempts at goal with 7 of them on target. For SPAL, the goalscorers were Alberto Paloschi (62') and Enrico Brignola (75'). Monza had 8 attempts at goal with 4 on target.
In 5 of the previous six games featuring SPAL, a comparatively low number of goals have been hit between them and their opponents. The overall average goals scored per game in that spell comes out as a mere 2.33, with the number of goals averaged by SPAL equalling 1.83.
Head to head
The last league fixture between the two was Serie B match day 25 on 11/02/2017 which ended up with the score at Entella 0-3 SPAL.
The referee was Francesco Paolo Saia.
Team News: Entella
There is just the lone fitness concern for the Entella boss Bruno Tedino to contend with thanks to an otherwise robust group of players. Marco Brescianini (Ankle Injury) will miss out.
Team News: SPAL
Owing to a fully healthy group ready to go, SPAL manager Pasquale Marino has zero fitness worries at all coming into this match.
Here, we’re thinking that Entella will have a tough ask to get anything against this SPAL team who we reckon will win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
We’re going for a very even contest with a 0-1 winning margin for SPAL at the conclusion of the game.
Looking forward to this.
