Fiorentina vs Spezia
Italy Serie A
Date: Friday, 19 February 2021
Kick-Off at 17.30 UK
Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi, Florence.
Fiorentina and Spezia will raise curtain on the Matchday No 23 in Italian Serie A on Friday evening when they take on each other at Stadio Artemio Franchi.
The hosts could get in troubles in case of a potential failure here having lost each of the last two league outings.
Viola are now only seven points above the red zone line. They haven’t kept a clean sheet in six consecutive league matches, producing no more than two goals in the last three along the way.
The story is opposite with Aquilotti who are enjoying a two-win streak going into the tie in Florence.
Vincenzo Italiano’s men produced the biggest upset of the previous round, beating the table-toppers Milan 2-0 on the home patch.
Spezia are now two points above Fiorentina in the bottom half of the league standings and another victory here would completely move them away from the relegation scrap.
Fiorentina vs Spezia Head-to-head
- The two outfits did not have the opportunity to cross each other’s paths before this season.
- They’ve shared spoils in an eventful 2-2 draw when they locked horns in the first half of this Serie A campaign.
- The match was played in mid-October last year at Stadio Alberto Picco.
Fiorentina vs Spezia Prediction
Fiorentina are bookmakers’ favourites here, but it is really hard to justify the value of the 1.95 odds offered for their victory here.
We are much closer to a draw as the final outcome. The hosts can ill afford a failure and we expect them to start the match in a more careful fashion. Aquilotti will also want to continue their fine defensive displays from the last two games.
This is why we see the Under 2.5 goals FT as the best betting option here. You can back it at the odds of 1.61.
As for the outcome, we will go for the draw at the odds of 3.25. You can alternatively also take the 1.80 odds offered for Spezia not to lose on Friday at Stadio Artemio Franchi.
