AS Livorno vs. Vicenza / Serie B – On the first day of the weekend we have among our analysis included one type from the 13th round of the Italian Serie A, the one which will be played between the fifth Livorno and eighth Vicenza, which now has three points less. But these two teams are actually equal which is best confirmed by the fact that in the last six matches, they played a draw five times, while only three seasons ago Livorno managed to celebrate at home. Begins: 14.11.2015 – 15:00 CET
But we must also know that they just at the end of that season, managed to win a place in the elite rank of Italian football, where they expressly returned to Serie A, where they last year because of one place lost placement in the playoffs. That is why they during this summer further reinforced the team, while they at the same time on the bench left the ambitious young coach Panucci, which only means that the expectations of their management are really big, and focused on placement in Serie A.
For now, they are on the right track, because they are only four points away from the second-ranked Crotone, provided that they prior to the last were even better ranked on the table, but then came a little unexpected away defeat by Pro Vercelli, which is why they were in the meantime overpassed in the standings by Bari. However, they are now again returning to their own territory, where they are this season already playing much better than on the side and therefore Panucci announced a maximally serious and aggressive approach against very nasty Vicenza. As for the composition, it has recently been quite stabilized, while the injured defenders Emerson and Kukoc and midfielders Biagianti and Vajushi are still out of action.
Probable lineups AS Livorno: Pinsoglio – Maicon, Vergara, Ceccherini, Gasbarro – Luci, Schiavone – Aramu, Pasquato, Jeleni? – Vantaggiato
As for the guests from Vicenza, they had an even better opening of this season and they in the first seven rounds made three wins and four draws, but then in the next four games, they suffered three defeats and have therefore fallen into the middle of the table. However, in the last round they celebrated at home with safe 3-0 over Ascoli and thus again broken through to eighth place, while they are big seven points behind the second Crotone.
But what is at this point perhaps the most concerning for their coach Marino is that they in the last two performances recorded defeats by Pro Vercelli and Cagliari, so he will certainly have something to change in the approach before this match in Livorno. As for the composition, it will probably remain the same as in the previous round, especially because the injured central defenders Brighenti and Manfredini, midfielder Gagliardini and strikers Galano and Pozzi are still out of action.
Probable lineups Vicenza: Vigorito – Laverone, Sampirisi, Mantovani, D'Elia – Sbrissa, Cinelli, Urso – Vita, Raicevic, Giacomelli
