Serie B Review - Week 13

Testing 2-1

Thirteen games into the Serie B season and the table still has an unfamiliar look to it as Frosinone stay on top of the table, with Carpi in second, closely followed by Spezia in third.

Frosinone continued their excellent run of form with a 4-1 home victory over Trapani.  The hosts went ahead before the break through Austrian midfielder Robert Gucher, who hit a great strike from outside the box.   Davis Curiale beat the offside trap to make it 2 -0 with a cool finish after 53 minutes, and the Gialloazzuri were staying on top of the league.

Matteo Mancosu reduced the deficit from the spot on the hour for Trapani, but it didn't take long for Frosinone to regain control.  Trapani found themselves down to 10 men after Aramu was shown a second yellow card, then Frederico Dionisi scored after 78 minutes to restore the two goal advantage.   The fourth goal came in injury time through Curiale, a delightful chip over the keeper to seal the points for Frosinone.  Trapani drop to 8th after this loss.

Carpi gained an excellent point on the road with a 0-0 draw away at Bologna to cement their place in the top two.   The Biancorossi are now unbeaten in five games, and take on Cittadella at home this weekend.  Bologna continue their good form and are 6th.

Spezia played on Friday night at home to Crotone and ran out 2-1 winners.   Goals from Nigerian striker Ebagua and Niccolo Gianetti sealed the win.  Crotone pulled a goal back through Camillo Ciano but it wasn't enough for the visitors and they remain at the bottom of the table.

Avellino moved upto fourth place after defeating Modena, also 2-1.  Castaldo put the Biancoverdi in front after 21 minutes and Castaldo made it two on the stroke of half time from the penalty spot to put the visitors in control.  Modena hit back through Pablo Granoche  before the hour mark but Avellino held on for the victory.  The defeat drops Modena to 13th.

Elsewhere, struggling Ternana earned a great win by defeating Bari by a single goal. Pescara's topsy turvy season continued by defeating Brescia 3-1 away and Catania continued their march up the table after seeing off Varese 2-1.

Perugia got back to winning ways, beating Virtus Entella 2-1 at home. Virtus Lanciano defeated Livorno by a goal to nil and Vicenza came out victorious in their encounter with Pro Vercelli, again by a scoreline of 2-1.

Finally, Cittadella and Latina played out a 1-1 draw.

Bari 0-1 Ternana
Bologna 0-0 Carpi
Brescia 1-3 Pescara
Catania 2-1 Varese
Cittadella 1-1 Latina
Frosinone 4-1 Trapani
Modena 1-2 Avellino
