VICENZA V BENEVENTO
In that match, Vicenza had 35% possession and 17 attempts at goal with 6 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Vicenza was Stefano Giacomelli (66'). Crotone had 12 shots on goal with 2 of them on target.
It has not been often in recent games where Vicenza have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that Vicenza have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 12 goals along the way. That pattern isn’t assured to be continued here, though.
Coming into this clash, Vicenza have not won at home in their last 6 league matches. That's never good.
Benevento will go into the meeting following on from a 4-0 Serie B win in the defeat of Reggina in their most recent fixture.
In that game, Benevento had 49% possession and 27 attempts on goal with 7 of them on target. For Benevento, goals were scored by Mattia Viviani (11'), Gianluca Lapadula (24'), Artur Ioniţă (57') and Andrés Tello (69'). Reggina got 7 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target.
A tendency of at least one team not scoring a goal in games featuring Benevento has become apparent of late. Examining their last six outings reveals that it has occurred 5 times. During these clashes, their opponents have managed a goal aggregate of 6 while Benevento have scored 10.
Prediction: Over 1.5 Goals
PORDENONE V ALESSANDRIA
Pordenone will play in this game following on from a 2-2 Serie B tied result vs Frosinone.
In that match, Pordenone had 39% possession and 10 attempts at goal with 2 on target. For Pordenone, the scorers were Alberto Barison (48') and Nicolò Cambiaghi (86'). Frosinone had 26 shots at goal with 7 on target. Gabriel Charpentier (74', 96') was the scorer for Frosinone.
It’s not been often in recent times where Pordenone have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The reality is that Pordenone have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 games, letting in 8 goals on the way. Despite that, we will just have to wait and see whether that pattern shall be maintained in this match.
Going into this one, Pordenone are without a home win in the past 7 league games. Their supporters are understandably frustrated.
Alessandria will come into the clash following a 1-0 Serie B win as they beat Cremonese in their previous game.
In that match, Alessandria had 38% possession and 9 shots on goal with 4 on target. The scorer for Alessandria was Mattia Mustacchio (48'). For their opponents, Cremonese had 10 shots on goal with 5 on target.
Over the course of 5 of the previous six games featuring Alessandria, a comparatively low number of goals have been hit between them and opposing teams. The overall average number of goals per game in that spell comes out as just 2, with the number of goals averaged by L'Orso equalling 1.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
REGGINA V ASCOLI

The stats don’t lie, and Ascoli have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 6 goals in total. In defence, Ascoli certainly have room for improvement.
Prediction: Under 3.5 Goals
