Spezia vs Lazio Prediction & Match Preview

Spezia vs Lazio
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 5 December 2020
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Orogel Stadium Dino Manuzzi, Cesena

Even though we are still in the early stages of new football season, Lazio SS are already far behind the table leaders in Serie A.

The Sky Blues had so many slip-ups in the opening nine weeks, managing to collect only 14 points, nine less than 1st placed AC Milan.

Most recent loss to Udinese surely lowered team spirits and mentality, which was already on questionable level.

Can Inzaghi’s boys return to winning ways against newcomers to the elite this Saturday in Cesena?

Spezia are undefeated in the last three Serie A outings and close to the middle of the table. Still, visitors are huge favorites priced at 1.57 odds to win the match.

Spezia vs Lazio Head-to-head

There were no competitive head to head matches between these two teams in the past, which is not a surprise considering Spezia are having their debut in Serie A.

There was one friendly match in 2013 though and Lazio have won it easily 3-0 FT.

Spezia vs Lazio Prediction

Spezia’s playstyle is quite attracting considering they don’t have a lot of experience in playing against big teams.

So far this team achieved two victories, four draws and suffered three losses. Very decent for a squad with main goal to avoid relegation.

Total number of goals scored in their nine duels is 30, which is slightly above 3.00 per match.

Vincenzo Italiano’s boys have been very consistent when it comes to scoring, bagging at least one goal in six out of the last seven Serie A appearances.

Lazio have just returned from Dortmund where they faced Borussia (1-1 FT) in UEFA Champions League action. All they now need is at least one point at home against Club Brugge to secure the playoffs.

Next three Serie A games against relatively weaker opponents like Spezia, Benevento and Hellas Verona are nice opportunity to catch up with the top.

We are expecting visitors to take all three points here, but also concede at least one goal.
