It's still early in the Serie C: Girone B season, but we are learning more and more about the teams. Here is the Fano - Imolese preview!

Fano and Imolese should both be in good shape for this meeting, as there's been enough days for both of them to train and rest since their last matches.

Fano form and stats

Fano are yet to win a home game, having collected 1 point from their first two Serie C: Girone B games here at Stadio Raffaele Mancini.

Fano are anxiously hoping for a goal as it's been 200 minutes since the last one in league fixtures. (Scored by R. Barbuti).

Fano's previous game was also a home match, the defeat 0-2 versus Sambenedettese (placed 11th). A 0-0 draw away before that, with Carpi the opponent.

This is expected to be a close game, with Fano perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Fano as a small favourite), we find 14 games. Fano has won four of these, drawn three and lost seven.

There's a new game coming up fairly quickly for Fano as they are travelling to their away game against Cesena in the Serie C: Girone B. That match is three days after this one.

At Stadio Raffaele Mancini, Fano has the goal stats of 1-3 (for/against) from 2 league fixtures.

Imolese form and stats

Things could have gone better for Imolese in their Serie C: Girone B away matches, but 3 points from 2 games is all right.

Imolese are travelling after their nice 2-1 home win in the Serie C: Girone B against Carpi (placed 9th). Preceding that game, the 1-2 loss visiting FeralpiSalo's place.

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

A new game in only three days for Imolese, the Serie C: Girone B home match versus Sambenedettese. Busy days.

2 goals so far away for Imolese, while their defence has allowed the opposition to score 2. All from 2 league matches away.

Head 2 Head

H2H stats regardless of arena (last four matches): Fano two wins, one draw and Imolese one victory. As for goals, zero matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), four games had two or less.
