Salernitana vs Spezia
Italy – Serie B
Date: Friday, 31 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Arechi.
The Garnets are placed 9th in the table – just below the final playoff spot, and they need to make up a deficit of one point in this final match-day. However, they are pitted against the third-placed Eagles.
The latter have already qualified for the playoff semis. But they have been in an unimpressive form lately, and before the post-season kicks in, the squad would definitely like to increase their confidence.
Considering their impressive overall form over the whole season, and their h2h superiority over the years against this rival, expect Spezia to record a win. However, taking into account the desperation of Gian Piero Ventura’s men, expect goals to come from both teams this Friday.
Salernitana vs Spezia: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Vincenzo Italiano’s men are on a two-game winning run against this opponent.
- They had also registered seven of the former ten wins.
- Also note that they had scored two or more goals in seven of the preceding eleven encounters.
- At this venue, the hosts had won four of the last five clashes.
- The latest meeting at this stadium had ended in a 1-0 win for the home team.
Salernitana vs Spezia: Prediction
The Eagles are placed third in the table, and they have already qualified to the semis of the playoffs. They were also unbeaten in four of their last five overall games, and remained so in 11 of their previous 15 away fixtures.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in eight of their last ten overall match-ups. Moreover, Italiano’s men had won their last two games against this rival, and had also registered seven of the previous ten overall h2h wins.
Taking these stats into account, expect Spezia to post the win this weekend.
However, understand that the hosts are desperate to qualify for the playoffs, and most importantly, they were unbeaten in 18 of their preceding 20 home appearances. For the reason, expect them to score at least once this weekend.
