Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Out-of-sorts Venezia will be looking to escape the relegation zone when they take on Frosinone in the Serie B round 9. I Lagunari failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to Bari, and they face yet another difficult task against the Canarini. Both Maximilian Ullmann and Sergio Romero are sidelined with injuries, while Domen Crnigoj and Aarron Connolly are major doubts.
Frosinone, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Parma, with the team beating Spal 2-0 in front of home fans. The Canarini, though, are on a three-game losing run on the road, which is the main reason why we are going to put our money on draw. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of Friday’s clash, but Croatia forward Karlo Lulic could sneak into the starting line-up.

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.
