Spezia vs Roma
Italian Serie A
Date: 22 January 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Alberto Picco (Spezia).
Roma stayed in contention for the UEFA Champions League positions with a 2-0 victory over Fiorentina last weekend at Stadio Olimpico.
The Romans took advantage of Dodo’s early red card for I Viola to pick up an easy three-pointer via a brace from Paulo Dybala.
Jose Mourinho’s men are now sharing the fifth place with Lazio and Atalanta while the likes of Juventus and Inter Milan are three points away at the third position in the standings.
The Portuguese manager can be satisfied with his team’s recent form. Rom may not play attractive football but they have three wins and a draw in four games in all competitions this month.
They will be looking to extend this fine thread on Sunday afternoon with the road clash against Spezia in Matchday No 19.
Claiming the spoils at Stadio Alberto Picco will be easier said than done knowing that Spezia are also unbeaten in three league games since the World Cup break.
The team led by Luca Gotti kept their net untouched in the last two league outings against Lecce and Torino.
However, it is also worth noting that Spezia have suffered a genuine disaster on Thursday afternoon, falling 5-2 away at Atalanta in the last 16 round of Coppa Italia.
It will be very interesting to see whether such a defeat will affect the team’s morale ahead of the clash with Roma this weekend.

- Roma lead the head to head tie by one win going into the seventh encounter with Spezia.

Spezia vs Roma Prediction
Jose Mourinho has become an expert for these so-called “easier games on paper”. We believe he will find a way to take his Roma to a narrow victory on Sunday at Stadio Alberto Picco.
Since both Spezia and Roma have done well defensively in the recent league matches, we will also back the low-scoring scenario here. The main bet is Roma to win & Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 4.00.
