Trapani vs Frosinone by Enzo
Trapani showed quite a good performance away to Brescia last weekend, but the team was unfortunate not to pull out all three points, ending the game in a 1:1 draw. Actually, they were the first one to concede in 62nd minute, however gained numerical advantage as the home team player got excluded in 66th minute and the visitors were able to create their own game much more easier from then on.
Eight minutes later Barilla scored the equalizer, while the team also lost two great opportunities till the end of the match to score the second one and win the game. Clearly, despite the result, the Sicilians have improved since gaining a new coach. He said that they respect Frosinone and know that they are one of the strongest sides in the league, but also that they will try to limit them this time. Trapani stands only two point above the relegation battle so no doubt that this game comes as a very important one for them. Suspended is midfielder Mattia Aramu (20/2), while injured remain full back Pavel Vidanov (4/1), central defender Mattia Caldara (17/0) and midfielder Enis Nadarevic (27/4), with the second two being a bit more important players.
Frosinone didn't play last weekend, as the game, derby game against Latina got postponed and the team surely lost a bit of their form and competitive balance due that decision. Previous to that, the team took a 4:1 victory on the road against Varese, showing clear intention that they want promotion this season.
As the coach has said, the team is in a very good form at the moment and that he doesn't doubt it at all. He also added that their target is either second position and direct promotion at the end of the regular part of the season, either third position that will bring them home advantage in the play-offs. He added that the team will play this game in order to win, like it's the last one of the season, also saying that the opponent surely improved since the first game played which Frosinone won 4:1. Full back Roberto Crivello (22/0) is still serving his suspension, while the team also misses winger Danilo Soddimo (22/1). Goalkeeper Mirko Pigliacelli (15/0) is injured, same as winger Luca Paganini (27/4). On the bright side, central defender Leonardo Blanchard (26/1) and midfielder Mirko Gori (22/1) are both back in the starting eleven.
Trapani is playing quite attacking football at home and having overall fast paced games. Frosinone is doing the same in last two months, having eight over 2.5 goals games out of last nine. Both teams to score and goals are written all over this game and will be my first choice here.
