Paganese hope to sell some tickets for this game even though the season has been rough so far with 12 points and a 18th position in the Serie C: Girone C table. Visiting Catania holds 7th place with 27 pts.

Insights:
  • Paganese have yet to win a game at home.
  • Catania haven’t played a single 0-0 game 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.

Paganese form and stats

The home fans haven’t been spoiled with victories in the Serie C: Girone C this season. Paganese have only managed 0 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses from their games here at Stadio Marcello Torre. With ten home Serie C: Girone C games in a row without a win, the Paganese fans could feel they are not getting value for their money. It remains to be seen whether this unfortunate streak, which started after the Ternana game long ago, can be stopped today. It's trouble wherever Paganese are playing these days as they have suffered five straight defeats now, regardless of arena. They really need to get back to winning ways.

Paganese's previous game was also a home match, the defeat 1-3 versus Casertana (placed 13th). A defeat was the result before that one, 0-1 away at Potenza Calcio.

The lack of attacking qualities in Paganese means that they have only scored 5 goals in 10 league home games, less than half a goal per match. Defensively it’s touch-and-go for the home team as 18 goals have been conceded. It's worth mentioning that 10 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 home matches.
