Napoli vs Spezia
Italy Coppa Italia
Date: Thursday, 28 January 2021
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, Naples.
Thursday’s clash between Napoli and Spezia will provide the last Coppa Italia semi-finalist. The hosts, who are the defending champions, will enter the tie as heavy favourites despite losing the last two games they played.
The Partinopei clinched their sixth cup trophy last season by beating Juventus on penalties (0-0 in the regular time). They dispatched Empoli 3-2 at the start of the new Coppa Italia campaign thanks to Andrea Petagna’s late second-half winner earlier this month.
Spezia have already made a huge upset in the previous round when they eliminated Roma. Vincenzo Italiano’s men won the match at Stadio Olimpico 2-4 after the extra-time, but the game was either way registered as a 0-3 win for the visitors. Roma’s manager Paulo Fonseca made a huge mistake by making one more substitution than allowed on the occasion.
Napoli vs Spezia Head-to-head
- Napoli won three, drew two, and lost one of six head to head encounters with Aquilotti.
- However, Spezia’s lone victory came just in this season’s clash against Napoli, played at the start of this month. Aquilotti picked up a 1-2 win at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
- Three or more goals were scored in each of the last three head to head affairs between the two sides.
- Both teams were on target in four of the last five H2H meetings.
Napoli vs Spezia Prediction
Napoli’s ambitions of getting involved in the battle for Scudetto suffered a serious blow after the weekend’s 3-1 loss at Verona.
Partinopei thus continued with their inconsistent displays this season. They also revealed defensive holes having allowed five goals in the last two matches in all competitions. Since they shipped two goals in the previous Coppa Italia fixture against Empoli, and also two against Spezia in the aforementioned Serie A match earlier this year, we have reasons to expect the visitors scoring on Thursday.
Spezia played another high-scoring tie at the weekend when they fell 4-3 to Roma in the league. Italiano’s men have been on a decent run of three wins and a draw in four matches across competitions before the loss in the capital.
Each of the last three head to head games between these two likes produced three or more goals and we just have to back the Over 2.5 goals FT pick as the main betting option at the odds of 1.53. You can also try with Napoli to win & BTTS @ 2.87.
