Spezia vs Roma
Italian Serie A,
Sunday, 23 May 2021
Kick-off 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Alberto Picco.
Will Roma finish another disappointing Serie A campaign victorious on Sunday evening when they travel to Stadio Alberto Picco to take on Spezia? A win would secure them the 7th-place finish and a place in the UEFA Conference League next season.
Roma have had a dreadful domestic campaign in this term of Serie A and their fans can’t wait to see Jose Mourinho taking over Paulo Fonseca at the helm at the start of the next season.
We thus have plenty of reasons to question Roma’s morale and motivation ahead of this trip to La Spezia. Does the new European competition sound attractive for their fans?
We wouldn’t say so. This is why we would advise you to be very careful with the away win picks despite Roma’s strong showing in the last weekend’s city derby against Lazio.
Spezia will enter the final day fixture in the highest of spirits after a demolishing 4-1 victory over Torino eight days ago.
M’Bala Nzola was the main catalyst (scored a brace) for the victory that has officially kept Serie A debutants Spezia in the elite class for the next season.
The hosts will thus no doubts be encouraged to end their inaugural top-flight campaign with another victory. A Roma scalp would certainly be the icing on the cake for Vincenzo Italiano and his troops.
Spezia vs Roma Head-to-head
The two sides have already played each other twice this season. They met in the last 16 round of Coppa Italia when Spezia advanced with a 2-4 extra-time victory at Stadio Olimpico (the match was registered 0-3 for the visitors, though).
Roma got their revenge just four days later celebrating a 4-3 victory at the same venue.
This will be the teams’ fourth head to head encounter.
Spezia vs Roma Prediction
Roma did keep things quiet at the back last weekend against Lazio, but they have been anything but meticulous defensively throughout the season.
After all, the Romans will travel to Stadio Alberto Picco off the back of five consecutive away defeats across competitions. They shipped 17 goals in the process (more than three per game).
Since Spezia found the back of the net in all of the last eight home outings in the league and since they’ve just put four goals past Torino last weekend, the home win looks delicious at the 4.75 odds.
