Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Cremonese will look to retain top position in the standings when they host Alessandria to their Stadio Giovanni Zini on Matchday 33. Following back-to-back wins over Pordenone and Spal, the league leaders shared the spoils with Reggina in the last league match to retain their spot in top two. Even though defender Alessandro Crescenzi is banned for the midweek clash, the bookies see Le Tigri as favourites to beat Moreno Longo’s troops.
Alessandria, on the other hand, sit in the relegation zone ahead of Matchday 33, and given their poor run of results, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. You should bear in mind that I Grigi collected only one point in total from the previous four league fixtures. Midfielder Francesco Orlando is sidelined with injury, while Gabriele Bellodi is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
