Spezia vs Bologna Serie A Predictions by LeagueLane

Spezia vs Bologna
Italy Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 16 December 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Alberto Picco, Spezia.

Sinisa Mihajlovic was furious after watching his team concede five goals in the first half against AS Roma on Sunday. Bologna were defeated at home venue 1-5 and slipped to 12th position on the table. We are getting plenty of mid-week action and this squad will visit Stadio Alberto Picco to face Spezia.

Hosts have also been struggling lately, managing to collect only two points in the last four outings. Their main goal for the season is to avoid express comeback to Serie A, and so far situation is not looking that alarming with ten points from eleven games. In terms of the odds, visitors are labelled as warm favorites at 2.15 rate, even though Bologna lost four out of five away days.

Spezia vs Bologna Head-to-head

These two teams have met recently in Coppa Italia at Renato Dall’Ara stadium. Spezia have won the encounter 4-2 after extra time. Giulio Maggiore was the hero with two goals in the last twenty minutes.

Other than that, there was total of eight head to head clashes between these opponents in the past. The score is tied at three victories each.

Total number of goals scored in those is 23, which is close to 3.00 per duel.

Spezia vs Bologna Prediction

Only Torino and Spezia haven’t secured one single home victory in this Serie A campaign, so hosts surely won’t lack motivation. The current form is far from good though – fans were happy with a goalless draw against Atalanta at this venue, but the follow up losses to Lazio and last weekend to Crotone were far from decent performances. Team has conceded 23 goals in eleven matches, and they will have to work on that to achieve season goals.

Bologna were struggling even before abovementioned loss to AS Roma. They also lost to Inter Milan and Napoli, but results against mid-table teams are looking rock-solid, managing to beat Sampdoria and Crotone. We are expecting an open match with a lot of goals. Visitors are in crisis, so our secondary choice is going to be home win or draw double chance.

Spezia vs Bologna Bet Tips
