Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Spal and Pisa take on each other at Stadio Paolo Mazza on day 19 of the new Serie B campaign. Spal proved their worth in a hard-fought 1-0 win over Parma, with the team escaping the relegation zone, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to secure the Serie B survival. Both Christian Dalle Mura and Salvatore Esposito are banned for the match, while Raffaele Celia and Gabrieli Moncini miss out with injuries.
Meanwhile, Pisa aim to build on a thrilling 3-0 win over Brescia, but seeing that they have recorded only one win on the travels this term, we are tempted to put our money on draw. With no fresh injury worries to report boss Luca D’Angelo is unlikely to make changes to the team that outplayed Le Rondinelle. A man to watch in the away team will be Ettore Gliozzi, who scored a brace at the weekend.
