Stadium: Alberto Picco (La Spezia)
Spezia and Genoa will meet in another Tuesday match in Serie A, where the midweek tour kicks off. Let's pick out a few bets on this crucial encounter between the struggling teams for survival at once.Get Your Welcome Bonus!
Spezia have already lost six games
Thiago Motta's side suffered their sixth defeat on Friday when they made an unsuccessful trip to Genoa to face Sampdoria. The only goal of the season came on 90+5, with Sampdoria trailing 2-0 after 36 minutes. La Spezia had no chance of scoring in this game.
Neither do we particularly believe that this modest side can keep their place in Serie A for next season. At least with coach Motta, there is certainly no chance. Strangely, some experts and analysts have been holding out hope for the Brazilian-Italian specialist at the head of La Spezia.
Genoa are in trouble
At the start of the season, Genoa had a change of ownership. But what good was the transfer campaign if it was still Preziosi who wanted to save before selling the club. As a result, the Griffins started the new league season with a distinct lack of players. Because of this, incidentally, sporting director Francesco Marroccu was sacked the other day. But then again, what good is that now?
Genoa need to survive the winter period of substitutions somehow and not lose too many points by then. Coach Davide Ballardini is doing all he can. Thanks to him, as well as captain Crisito and the scoring talent of Destro, the Griffins have six points under their belt. The team is 18th in the standings, but it could have been much worse.

On the previous matchday, Genoa lost 2-3 to Torino. The Griffons have now conceded 21 goals. Salernitana show the same number, and only La Spezia conceded 22. It is unclear how a match between two defences so weak can be a low-scoring one. Well, it probably won't be.
