Our prediction for this Coppa Italia match:
Stadio Giovanni Zini will host Thursday’s Coppa Italia game between Cremonese and Modena, the two teams who meet for the first time since March 2006. Cremonese do not seem to be competitive in the Serie A, with the team sitting in the penultimate place in the standings with only four points in their pocket. I Grigiorossi have yet to record a win in the new Serie A campaign, and, no doubt, they will give 100% to eliminate Modena in the Italian Cup last 32.
Both Jack Hendry and Vlad Chiriches are sidelined with injuries, while fellow defender Luka Lochoshvili is a major doubt. I Canarini, on the other hand, rolled over Como 5-1 in their last Serie B game, with the team extending their winning run to three matches. Anyhow, home triumph should be considered as Cremonese want this win more than Modena. The likes of Andrea Poli, Giorgio Cittadini, Mario Gargiulo, and Thomas Battistella are out of contention with injuries for the visiting side.
