SPAL will be looking for an improved result here following a 2-1 Serie B defeat in their last game at the hands of Empoli.
In that game, SPAL managed 50% possession and 13 attempts on goal with 2 on target. The scorer for SPAL was Salvatore Esposito (34'). Empoli got 23 attempts at goal with 6 on target. Nedim Bajrami (63') and Leonardo Mancuso (83') scored for Empoli.
It has been seldom in recent times where SPAL have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that SPAL have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 12 goals along the way. With no two games being the same, we will just have to wait and see whether that pattern will continue on in this upcoming game or not.
Heading into this contest, SPAL haven’t won at home in the past 16 matches in the league. The home fans must be at their wits’ end.
In their previous fixture, Vicenza drew 1-1 in the Serie B tie with Salernitana.
In that match, Vicenza managed 54% possession and 15 shots at goal with 5 of them on target. The scorer for Vicenza was Luca Rigoni (43'). At the other end, Salernitana got 13 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. Milan Đurić (25') was the scorer for Salernitana.
Over the course of 6 of the past six games featuring Vicenza, a comparatively low number of goals have been hit between them and their opponents. The overall average goals scored per game during that period comes to a meagre 1.5, with the number of goals averaged by Biancorossi being 0.33.

We’re predicting a 2-1 winning margin for SPAL by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. We’ll have to see what happens.
