Free Pick Serie B: Spal – Pisa

Spal is playing an amazing season and in fact they are 2nd in table with 51 points and with 3 wins and 1 draw in last 4 games.
This is amazing for a new promoted team and for a team who started the season just focused to avoid the relegation.
At home they are very strong with an overall record of 9-3-1 and also with 4 wins and 1 draw in last 5 games with wins over Perugia, Benevento and Spezia.
For today the usual 3-5-2 is sure and the only doubt in the lineup will be in midfield between Castagnetti and Arini, with the first in little advantage. In offense, again, the duo Floccari-Antenucci.

Pisa after a lot of trouble with the society (as i wrote many times) now is more quiet.
They won a great game in away against Ascoli (2-4) and than they obtained a good draw against Carpi at home (0-0).
In away they are the team who drawed more in the league (8 times) and also the best defense (12 goals).
For today Di Tacchio will be back after the DQ, Lisuzzo and Landre are both out like Avogradi.

Both teams played in the midweek so today they could be a little bit tired because the lineup will be more or less the usual.
I think Pisa will play in the classic way with a lot of defense.

Under 2,5 @1.52  (1-1)

Free Pick Serie B: Pro Vercelli – Benevento

Pro Vercelli is in fight for avoid the relegation and now the standings is pretty close especially for the salvation fight.
They are not in a great moment with 1 point in last 4 games. They obtained a draw against Cittadella (0-0) in away and lose 3 matches against Trapani (1-3 at home), Spezia (0-2 at home) and in last turn 3-1 against Ascoli in away.
For today Provedel is back after the ban of 1 game, Vives will be again the central midfielder but in offense they can’t count on LaMantia (injured) and the duo will be Aramu-Comi.

Benevento is in fight for a place in the playoff zone or (with a bit of lucky) for the direct promotion.
They won 3 of last 5 games and obtained 10 points in last 5 games. In last 3 games they won against Carpi (3-0) at home, then drawed against top class Verona for 2-2 in away and in last one they won against Latina for 2-1 at home.
For today mister Baroni can count on all his usual holders, the only doubt is about striker Ceravolo who has a little problem.
If he will play, so, Cissè will start in the trio in his back. If he’ll not play, so, Cissè will start as striker and Pajac will take the spot in the trio behind him.

Benevento is a good team and for me can take something from this game.

Benevento +0,5 @1,50 (0-0)

Free Pick Serie B: Cittadella – Pisa

Cittadella started the season in a really great way with a lot of wins and great results but they are a new promoted team and now it’s arrived the time of the season when they pay a little bit that thing.
Actually they are still in the playoff zone but are in a bad moment with 3 lose in a row and 4 lose in last 5 games.
They lose 3 in a row against Carpi (2-0 in away), Spal (1-2 at home) and Cesena (3-0 in away).
The home record is still good with 5-0-4 and with 3-0-2 in last 5 games.
They will have out Chiaretti and Kouame in offense so it’s probable a start for Arrighini. The other only doubt is between Lori and Strizzolo with the first favourite.

Pisa played well in last period and is undefeated in last 3 games with a win and 2 consectuive draws against Pro Vercelli and Bari (both for 0-0).
But in this week, after the great news of last time for the change of the society, the situation is agin very bad because the transaction blow up and now the team is still with no future and no money.
The commune said that they will do anything to make possible the end of the season for Pisa but as i said the situation is not good.
Gattuso and his guys played all the season with that situation and i think that they will continue to do that.
In offense it’s possibile Gatto and Varela with Eusepi and not Cani.
Lazzari, Crescenzi, Mudingayi e Tabanelli are all still out.

I want to take my shot on under but i think that also a draw could be a probable result.

Under 2,5 @1,62  (1-0)

Free Pick Serie B: Avellino – Pisa

Avellino is in battle for avoid the relegation and the situation isn’t so good with just 1 point in last 3 games.
They lose against Spal (3-0 in away), against Frosinone (0-1 at home) and draw against Carpi (1-1 in away). This week was not easy for the society with a huge dispute from the fans over the President and the GM and also the trainer Toscano had a healthy problem and today will not be on the bench. The players unavailable are Soumarè and Verde, but also Migliorini is DQ.
So they will start with a 4-4-2.
At home they are 3-2-2 with 4 result of 1-0/0-1 in last 5 games.

Pisa is a team still in trouble with not an easy societary situation but after months and months it’s a classic for them.
They have still 15 points and are without a win in last 5 (0-3-2) and arrive to this match after 2L in a row against Perugia (0-1 at home) and Cesena (2-0 in away).
Gattuso will not have Golubovic (DQ) and Crescenzi.
In last 5 matches they scored just 1 time and in away they scored 2 goals in 7 games.

I want to take this under option here.

Under 2,5 @1,52  (1-0)

Free Pick Serie B: Latina – Pisa

Latina is a team actually in 19th place (a place valid for the playout zone but it’s really too early to think about that).
They are 1-3-1 in last 5 games but obtained 3 points in last two against Trapani (a win at home for 2-0) and against Carpi (a lose in away always for 2-0).
At home they are a decent team with 1-3-0 and before the win over Trapani they drawed 3 times against Ternana, Benevento and Spezia.
For today they will have out for sure the defender Brosco who will be replaced by a young guy like Mauro Coppolaro. In offense Acosty and Boakye will start for sure by the first minute and the only doubt is between Corvia (the favourite) and Paponi.

Pisa is 11th but after a good start they have a little down with 1 draw and 2L in last 3 games. They draw against Carpi (1-1 in away) and lose two in a row against Spal (0-1 at home in a really close game) and Vicenza (0-1 at home but in a match where they deserved the L).
After the game against Vicenza Gattuso was really upset and said that he want his team focused on the defnese, wasnt a team aggressive and ready to commit fouls when it’s necessary and not think about yellow cards.
For today the only absence will be Eusepi who will be replaced by Cani and in midfield will start again Sanseverino, instead in offense will play Gatto instead of Mannini.

For me we’ll see another game where Pisa will try to play focused on defense because for them also a draw could be a great result and Latina will be free to play the ball. I want to take a shot on the under line.
