Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Buoyed by a hard-fought 1-0 win over Reggina, Spal will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Ascoli on Saturday. The Gli Spalini are eager to escape the danger zone, and they should take advantage of the current situation in Ascoli’s dressing room. Since Daniele De Rossi has a full squad to choose from, home win should definitely be considered. Meanwhile, I Picchi suffered a dip in form, with the team losing to both Reggina and Ternana in the previous two league fixtures.
Ascoli have been struggling in front of goal of late, which is yet another reason why we are going to bet on the home side. Central midfielder Fabrizio Caligara is out of contention with injury, but there are no suspended players in the away team. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a 1-1 draw, but home win should be considered this time out.
Highlighted Player (Alberto Pomini):
Alberto Pomini is a 185-cm-tall goalkeeper who played for Verona during his youth career. In 2001 he moved to San Marino and he made 17 league appearances for the club in the Serie C2. At the end of the season he signed a deal with Bellaria and after playing 20 games for the club, he moved to Sassuolo in 2004.
Pomini played for the Neroverdi in the Serie C2 back then, but the club have been making progress year by year. Sassuolo are currently playing in the Italian top flight, but it has to be noted that Pomini did not see any game action in the 2015/2016 Serie A campaign. The Italian goalkeeper wore No. 17 on his shirt between 2008 and 2012, but following Davide Bassi’s departure he received number 1 shirt.
Alberto Pomini was born in Isola della Scala, Italy on 17 March, 1981. He has a contract with Sassuolo which expires at the end of the 2016/2017 Serie A campaign. His agent is Danilo Caravello.
