Spezia vs Cremonese
Italian Serie A
Date: 16 October 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Alberto Picco (La Spezia).
Spezia will be hoping to rebound from successive losses to Lazio and Monza on Sunday afternoon when they play host to Cremonese in the 10th round of Serie A.
The visitors are one of just two winless teams after nine rounds of the competition. They share the very foot of the standings with Sampdoria, both teams sitting at three points at the moment.
Spezia, on the other side, managed to get two wins in nine games. Both came at their Stadio Alberto Picco where Luca Gotti’s men have shown much better performances than on the road.
While Spezia lost all five games on the road, they have a great record of two wins and draws apiece in four league outings in their own backyard this term.
The visit of Cremonese is an ideal opportunity for the hosts to even improve this record at Stadio Alberto Picco.
Cremonese will come into this off the back of a tough home loss to Napoli (1-4) last Sunday.
The visitors own the worst defensive record in the league with 19 goals conceded in the opening 9 fixtures.
This will be the music to the ears of M’Bala Nzola who has bagged three goals for Spezia so far in the season.
Spezia vs Cremonese Head-to-head
- Spezia have won each of the last three competitive clashes against Cremonese on the home patch.
- The teams last met each other in the 2019/20 Serie B campaign when Spezia took four points from two meetings with Cremonese.
- Only one of the previous seven head to head encounters between the two teams saw goals scored at both ends.
Spezia vs Cremonese Prediction
There is definitely value to be found with Spezia here knowing they have won and drawn two apiece of four league games at Stadio Alberto Picco this season. They are up against the worst team in the competition here and we have to take the home win pick at the 2.45 odds.
No other team in the league have conceded more than Cremonese’s 19 goals. We thus also like the 3.10 odds offered for Spezia’s top scorer M’Bala Nzola to score anytime here.
