Frosinone form and stats

The visitors are W6-D5-L6 on the road this term. That's in the Serie B. Frosinone seem to be suffering from homesickness with two consecutive losses away. Third time lucky?

Frosinone are travelling after their nice 3-1 home win in the Serie B against Pisa (placed 13th). A 0-2 defeat away at Pordenone before that.

Frosinone are the outsiders in this one, but not by much. Their performance in similar games (being the away team and moderate outsiders) is zero wins, zero draws and six defeats. From a total of six matches.

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

Scoring goals is the main ingredient in creating success in football, and not only at home. So far Frosinone have scored 17 goals in 17 league games away. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 0 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. Frosinone have conceded 21 goals in these away matches.
