Roma vs Spezia
Italy – Coppa Italia
Date: Tuesday, 19 January 2021
Kick-off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Roma came straight to the 1/8 final in the Coppa Italia this season. The host has been winless in their recent two fixtures in Serie A. Their previous clash was a 3-0 loss on the road against Lazio last time out.
Spezia has been unbeaten in their recent three fixtures in Serie A. This came after an eight-game winless run in the league, which gives more hope for the away team. Their previous encounter in the schedule was on the road. And they shared the spoils with Torino in that goalless scoreline.
Roma vs Spezia Head-to-head (h2h)

- But the away team later won the 1/8 final in penalties (0-1).
Roma vs Spezia Prediction
Roma is one of the best teams in Serie A and facing a promoted team in the league for Coppa Italia will not be an enormous task for the home team. The host enjoys the ground advantage in the game and has lost none of their last 17 home matches across all major competitions in their schedule.
It has to be noted that the last defeat for Roma came against Lazio, which is one of the strongest contenders in the league. Besides, their squad strength is above par with what the away team can offer in the middle for the upcoming clash on Tuesday.
Spezia has their luck turn in favor of the last two fixtures in the campaign. They had to defeat Bologna with a 4-0 scoreline at home in the previous Coppa encounter to reach the 1/8 finals. However, defeating the host is easier said than done for the visitor still struggling in Serie A.
The tip for BTTS will probably come in handy, as both teams are likely to see the back of the net in ninety minutes. Apart from that, the combined tip of a home win and under 3.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter to yield decent returns.
