Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Stadio Oreste Granillo will host Saturday’s football game between Reggina and Frosinone, the two teams who are level on points in the Serie B standings. Reggina head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Pordenone where substitute Galabinov scored a late equalizer. The Bulgaria international returns to the starting XI against Frosinone, while experienced winger Jeremy Menez is rated doubtful for the game. Similar to Reggina, Frosinone are undefeated in the 2020/2021 Serie B campaign.
The Canarini have already kept three clean sheets in the new season, and, taking everything into account, a low-scoring draw is on the cards at Stadio Oreste Granillo. Nicolo Brighenti is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. It has to be noted that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of Frosinone’s previous two away games in the Serie B.
Highlighted Player (Francesco Zampano):
Francesco Zampano is a product of Sampdoria’s youth school. The pacey full back, who is capable of playing as a midfielder as well, began his senior career at Entella, making 51 league appearances for the club between 2011 and 2013. At the end of the 2012/2013 campaign he moved to Verona, but he was immediately sent on loan to Juve Stabia.
After playing 33 league games for the club in the 2013/2014 season, he signed a loan deal with Pescara. In July, 2015 Zampano signed a permanent deal with Pescara and it has to be noted that he made 38 league appearances for the club in the 2015/2016 Serie B campaign.
The Italian footballer, who was born in Genoa on 30 September, 1993, has three caps for Italy U20, but he has yet to make his debut for the senior team. His contract with Pescara expires on 30 June, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Frosinone):
Back in 1912 Frosinone were founded as Unione Sportiva Frusinate and it has to be noted that the colors of the team were originally red and blue. They were later changed to the current yellow and blue and the Canarini have been wearing those kits ever since. Frosinone made their first ever appearance in the Serie A in the 2015/2016 season, but they failed to secure the promotion.
The Canarini finished the season in 19th place in the standings, eight points behind Udinese, who eventually avoided relegation to Serie B. However, two years later Frosinone returned to the Italian top flight as they defeated Palermo 3-2 on aggregate in the play-offs final.
The club play their home games at Stadio Benito Stirpe, the stadium that was opened in 2017. The venue can hold 16,227 spectators and it is owned by the Municipality of Frosinone. The construction cost €20 million.
