Reggina form and stats

The visitors are W3-D2-L1 on the road this term. That's in the Serie B. Having won their last three away games Reggina has no reason to fear anyone.

Reggina failed to get anything from their last game, a Serie B home match vs Cremonese (placed 5th) that ended with defeat 1-2. Reggina goalkeeper Stefano Turati was glad for a first-rate day's work vs Cremonese, but despite achieving six saves the defeat could not be helped. Stefano Turati (goalkeeper) was the best performer with a rating of 8.02. Turati saved a penalty and stopped the opponent with six saves.

Preceding that game was the away victory against Cosenza with the score of 1-0.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Reggina playing away and similar expectations, we found 15 relevant matches. Results were five Reggina wins, six draws and four defeats.

A quick return to home after this game, as Reggina are hosting Ascoli in the Serie B only three days away.

Reggina have a decent goal production going in their away games, although not fantastic. In 6 league away games 6 goals have been scored. They concede less than a goal on average per away game (4 so far).

Head 2 Head

Head-2-head stats last four meetings: four - zero - zero (Benevento wins - draws - Reggina wins). As for goals, three matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), one had two or less.
