Spezia vs Udinese
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 12 September 2021
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Alberto Picco.
Udinese are on a great run lately, and they also have a better h2h record in recent meetings against this rival. Meanwhile, Spezia are on a long unimpressive streak, and are conceding goals in huge numbers. Surely expect the former to have the edge this weekend.
Udinese are unbeaten so far this campaign, and are placed sixth in the table at the moment. The five teams placed above them are easily some of the very best teams in Italy.
Going on, the team has also conceded just two goals till now this new campaign, and only a handful of squads in the Serie A have managed to keep better defensive stats than that.
In the meantime, Spezia are yet to post their first win in the league, and they have also conceded the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition.
By the looks of things, it’s expected that Udinese will emerge victorious this Sunday at the Stadio Alberto Picco.

Spezia vs Udinese Prediction
Spezia lost 6-1 on the road the last match-day, against Lazio. In the meantime, Udinese won 3-0 at home against Venezia.
Going on, Spezia had conceded two or more goals in five of their former seven games, and they are also on a 19-fixture streak without a clean sheet. Do also note that they have a total of two clean sheets at home in the past 12-month period.
Moreover, they were also winless in 15 of their past 19 match-ups.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a five-fixture unbeaten run, and four of these were wins. They had also scored a total of 12 goals from their past four games.
And in addition, they also have a good h2h record against Spezia recently – particularly at this venue.
As such, expect a win for Udinese this weekend.
However, their defense has been poor on the road in the last several months, and they have also conceded quite heavily in h2h clashes. In fact, they have a total of two clean sheets on the road in the past 12-month period.
As such, expect Spezia to find the back of the net at least once.
