COMO V FROSINONE
It has been a rare occasion in recent games where Como haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that Como have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, leaking 6 goals on the way.
In their last fixture, Frosinone drew 0-0 in the Serie B match with Perugia.
In that match, Frosinone had 41% possession and 13 attempts on goal with 4 on target. Perugia had 12 attempts on goal with 3 on target.
A run of outstanding showings by the Frosinone defence has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 4 from their last 6 outings in total. During the same period, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 10. That being said, we must now wait to see whether the trend might be replicated in this match.
Coming into this fixture, Frosinone have not been beaten in their last 3 league matches away from home.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
BRESCIA V CROTONE
Brescia will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following a 1-3 Serie B triumph over Alessandria.
In that match, Brescia had 45% possession and 15 shots on goal with 8 of them on target. For Brescia, the goalscorers were Mehdi Léris (55'), Filip Jagiełło (69') and Rodrigo Palacio (93'). For their opponents, Alessandria got 8 shots on goal with 4 on target. Simone Corazza (74') scored for Alessandria.
In their prior 6 fixtures, Filippo Inzaghi's Brescia have celebrated scoring a combined total of 14 times, an average number of goals scored per match of 2.33.
Last time out, Crotone drew 1-1 in the Serie B match with Reggina.
In that match, Crotone managed 55% possession and 13 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. The scorer for Crotone was Ahmad Benali (58'). Reggina had 6 shots on goal with 2 of them on target. Andrey Galabinov (43') was the scorer for Reggina.
The stats don’t lie, and Crotone have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing their opponents hit 10 goals in all. In defence, Crotone can certainly do much better. Previous results aside, it remains to be seen whether the trend shall persist in this match.
Prediction: Under 3.5 Goals
DORDRECHT V TELSTAR
FC Dordrecht will be looking to improve on their last outing here after the 3-1 Eerste Divisie defeat in their last game at the hands of Excelsior.
In that match, FC Dordrecht managed 44% possession and 8 attempts on goal with 1 of them on target. The only player to score for FC Dordrecht was Nikolas Agrafiotis (29'). At the other end, Excelsior got 18 shots at goal with 8 on target. Marouan Azarkan (47'), Julian Baas (60') and Thijs Dallinga (93') scored for Excelsior.
It has been all too rare in recent games that FC Dordrecht have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that FC Dordrecht have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 games, letting in 11 goals along the way.
Heading into this contest, FC Dordrecht have not won at home in their last 7 league matches. Their supporters are understandably frustrated.
In their previous fixture, Telstar drew 1-1 in the Eerste Divisie tie with Almere City.
In that game, Telstar had 46% possession and 13 attempts on goal with 4 on target. The scorer for Telstar was Rein Smit (72'). Almere City had 14 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. Lance Duijvestijn (50') scored for Almere City.
The stats don’t lie, and Telstar have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, seeing their opponents hit 14 goals overall. Defensively, Telstar could really do with shoring things up. Such a trend might not be continued into this next game, however.
Ahead of this clash, Telstar have not won away from home in their last 12 matches in the league. A poor run.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
