Spezia is in a great position
With 8 rounds to the end of the championship, Spezia is in 16th place. Thiago Motta's team has 29 points, seven more than relegation zone leader Venezia. So a win in the upcoming game against their direct rival would increase their handicap to 10 points, practically securing the Eagles from relegation. Spezia is very close to stay in Serie A for the third season in a row.
Before the international break, Spezia played one of the most disappointing matches of the season, losing away to Sassuolo 1-4. In the last 6 matches the team had 5 defeats.
Venezia is beginning to fall apart
If things go on like this Paolo Zanetti's team will lose their chances of keeping their place in Serie A long before the end of the tournament. The team approaches the game against Spezia in 18th place. Cagliari are currently sitting in 17th place. The Sardinians are only three points ahead of the Venetians, but from a distance they look like a team with a lot more margin of safety.
In addition, the last few rounds were losing for Venezia. The bad streak reached four matches in a row. Venetians lost to Verona, Sassuolo, Lazio and Sampdoria.
- Spezia: Mehdi Bourabia, Ebrima Colley, Leo Sena, M'bala Nzola, Jacopo Sala will not play;
- Venezia: Thomas Henry, Sergio Romero, Luca Lezzerini will not play. Antonio Junior Vacca, Dennis Johnsen, Michael Cuisance are questionable.
In the first round of the current championship, Spezia beat Venezia away 2-1. Mehdi Bourabia scored the decisive goal on 90+4.Watch Free Live Stream
Expert Betting Tips
Spezia and Venezia conceded 54 goals each in the current championship. Only Empoli (55) and Salernitana (65) conceded more. Thus, it is safe to expect goals in their encounter. Moreover, Venezia will not be able to rely on the main goalkeeper Sergio Romero because of injury, which means that the chance of Venezia conceding increases. And after conceding, Paolo Zanetti's team will have to open up, go forward and score – the defeat will greatly complicate their lives in the fight to keep their place in Serie A.
Prediction: Both teams will score. And among the outcomes, we can choose a draw, as it is crucial for the opponents not to lose.
