The local coach may not count on Khouma Babacar, Diego Farias, Panagiotis Tachtsidis, Biagio Meccariello and Gabriel, due to injury.

In the last 12 home games for this competition there is 1 period that stands out: he scored 3 of his 7 goals between minutes (46’ ‑ 60 ‘).
The SPAL comes to this round without great motivation, after a 1-2 defeat at home against Sassuolo.
