Verona vs Spezia
Italy Serie A,
Date: Sunday, 3 October 2021
Kick-off 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.
Verona are looking for their second win of the season on Sunday afternoon when they host Spezia in the 7th round of the Serie A.
Verona opened the season with three subsequent defeats under the new manager Eusebio Di Francesco.
The former Roma manager was immediately sacked after the third defeat (1-0 at Bologna) as he gave his place to Igor Tudor.
The Croatian manager (former Juventus center-back) instantly brought a positive shock. With him in charge, Verona are yet to lose.
They saw off Roma 3-2 on Tudor’s managerial debut, a win that was followed by back-to-back high-scoring draws against Salernitana and Genoa.
While Tudor did manage to instill some confidence into Verona’s attackers (the team bagged at least two goals in each of three league games under his leadership), he must be worried about the performances at the opposite end.
I Gialloblu are conceding goals with ease this season. They shipped two or more in each of the last three league games despite playing the likes of Salernitana and Genoa in the last two along the way.
Goals should be on the cards once again this Sunday for Verona as well given they are about to face Spezia who boast the joint-worst defensive record in the competition (15 goals shipped in the opening 6 rounds).
The visitors lost four of the last five league affairs. To be fair, they have played the likes of Lazio, Juventus, and Milan in the process.
However, they have also conceded goals to Cagliari, Udinese, and Venezia this term.
Verona vs Spezia Head-to-head
- Verona took four points from two H2H clashes against Spezia in the previous term of Serie A.
- Neither of these matches produced three or more goals.
- Four of seven head to head outings between these two sides at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi ended without a winner.
Verona vs Spezia Prediction
Neither Verona nor Spezia have done well defensively of late and we can hardly see either of them keeping things quiet at the back here.
We will alternatively back Giovanni Simeone (scored his first goal of the season last weekend at Genoa) to score anytime at the 1.83 odds.
