The Frosinone leaves for this unmotivated party after a defeat, by 0-1, in the reception to the Lazio, reason why it continues going through difficulties in this Italian championship. We remember that visitors occupy a place in the descent zone, with only 13 points conquered. Without big surprises, coach Marco Baroni must use a more cautious strategy, looking for any space to apply the counterattack. Camillo Cian is the best score of Frosinone, with 6 goals scored. However, the brain of this team is midfielder Raman Chibsah, a player with great quality of pass and vision of the game. For this game the visiting coach can not count on the injured Brighenti, Dionisi and Ariaudo.
