Venue: Stadio San Vito-Luigi Marulla (24209 seats)

This match features two sides dwelling in the carpet of the Serie B, Cosenza having 15th place and SPAL lying 16th. A decent chance for one of the squads to improve their situation.

Insights:
  • Cosenza have scored at least twice as many goals as they have conceded at home.
  • Cosenza have scored at least twice as many goals at home as SPAL have scored away.

Both teams should be fairly well rested for this game, as they have had some quiet days to prepare. Hopefully this will translate into lots of action on the pitch.

It's quite the trip for SPAL when visiting Cosenza as the cities are 900 kilometers apart.
