Frosinone vs Juventus by Enzo
Frosinone did well to get a victory over Bologna on Wednesday evening with a narrow 1:0 result, but the team is still far away from anything close to the salvation zone. Their visitors from Bologna had more of the ball possession, but quite a meaningless one, since neither of the teams looked specially very threatening, not in the first halftime at least. However, everything changed in the second half when Bologna's defender got red card and the visitors were forced to a bit more passive role from 64th minute on.
Hosts managed to use that opportunity well, increased the tempo and scored the winning goal from the penalty kick in 77th minute taken by Dionisi, getting the victory without much problems later on since the vistors had no power to respond futher. As said, they are still far away from a positive positions, since the team currently remains second from the bottom, having five points less than first safely placed side Sampdoria. Seventeen out of their nineteen points earned they took at home, so there is no doubt that they will be awaiting this game in order to take something from it, but with quality difference in mind, no doubt that the hosts will be having hell of a task this time.
Hosts should be playing in 4-3-3 formation with Dionisi, Ciofani and Tonev as strikers. Midfielder Oliver Kragl (3/0), left full back Daniel Pavlovic (12/0) and central defender Arlind Ajeti (5/1) are injured.
Juventus, on the other hand, continued with their great run, but this time a bit tougher then expected, getting only a narrow 1:0 victory over Genoa this Wednesday evening in front of own fans. They actually even weren't that superior in comparison to their opponent, but big teams are getting their victories even when not playing that impressive.
Only goal was scored in 29th minute due defensive error from visiting defedener Di Maio which led to an own goal. They were slightly better till the end of the game, but without creating many true chances in front of opponents goal, while their forward Zaza got red carded near the end of the match. It was thirteenth straight victory in Serie A for Juventus, as they continue to be just two points below leaders from Napoli. This means the team remains in a must win situation and knowing their form and current abilities, it's not much of a task for them. Juve should be playing in their usual 3-5-2 formation with Dybala and Morata as strikes. Forward Simone Zaza (10/3) is suspended now, while striker Mario Mandzukic (16/6) remains injured.
Absenttes are midfielder Sami Khedira (12/3) and defensive Martin Caceres (6/0) too.
It's extremely hard to see Juventus playing twice poorly in a row (or having poor approach in the game). Guests should be able to get a convincing victory here without showing their full potential.
