Spezia vs Udinese
Italian Serie A
Date: 8 November 2022, Tuesday
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Alberto Picco (La Spezia).
Spezia will be hoping to find a way out of their crisis on Tuesday night when they host Udinese in Matchday No 14 at Stadio Alberto Picco.
Luca Gotti’s men took just one point in the last five league outings. They have started to leak goals with ease in the recent weeks.
Spezia allowed two or more goals in four of the previous five matches. Fiorentina had 27 attempts against them nine days ago at this very stadium.
This is why we see this match as a great chance for Udinese to find their old form following a streak of four successive winless affairs.
Andrra Sottill’s men did not impress offensively in the latest matches. They failed to find the back of the net in the previous away outing, playing out only a goalless draw away at Cremonese nine days ago.
Udinese will, however, fancy their chances of another clean sheet here. Their counterparts have only scored 10 goals in the opening 12 games of the season.
The key to success for head coach Andrea Sottill will be to stop Mbala Nzola who has been by far the most dangerous Spezia player this season.
Nzola took his league tally to five goals by bagging the equalizer in the mentioned 1-2 home defeat to Fiorentina nine days ago.
Spezia vs Udinese Head-to-head
- This will be the sixth head to head meeting between these sides and each of the previous five encounters ended in away wins.
- Spezia celebrated a 2-3 victory in the previous meeting with Udinese in mid-may this year.
- Both teams scored just once in the last four H2H outings.
Spezia vs Udinese Prediction
Udinese are set as the 1.75 favorites to get the win here but we struggle to find the value there knowing they have not quite been enjoying their best form of late. Sottill’s men went on a four-game winless streak and they did not impress at all in the recent away match against the likes of Cremonese.
This is why we will rather back Spezia to find a way out of the crisis and claim the spoils in their last home match before the World Cup in Qatar. The value is huge with Spezia to win & Under 2.5 goals FT pick at the odds of 9.50.
