Spezia vs Genoa
Italy Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 23 December 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Alberto Picco, Spezia.

Genoa and Spezia have one last chance to end their winless streaks in 2020. These two teams will lock horns on Wednesday night at Alberto Picco, hoping to end this year in victorious style and maybe get away from the relegation zone. None of them has won any out of last five games across competitions.

Hosts have collected more points so far than Griffins, 11 in comparison to seven, so their burden is surely lighter. Bookmakers are slightly favouring Spezia to win the game at 2.20 odds, while chances for Genoa to secure first victory away from home this season are at 3.20. Both teams have scored and conceded a lot of goals lately, so we are expecting a lot of action.

Spezia vs Genoa Prediction

Interestingly, Spezia have gathered eight points on their away days in comparison to only three at this stadium. The best performances of the season were victories against Udinese and Benevento.

Coach Vincenzo Italiano had a lot of words of praise for 24-years old French striker Mbala N’Zola who scored six goals in just nine appearances. We might easily see this player wearing a jersey of some bigger team after the winter transfer window.

Spezia demonstrated decent form last weekend in a 1-2 loss to Inter Milan. The only goal for the team was act of Piccoli in the stoppage time.

Five out of the last six Genoa’s games have ended with both teams scoring at least one goal. The results are terrible, as well as standings. Team sits in the relegation zone with only seven points.

As mentioned above, both sides will be seeking three big points. BTTS should be the safest way to approach the fixture.
