Our football match prediction:
After eliminating Udinese and Palermo in previous two rounds, Spezia will be looking to claim yet another major scalp in Coppa Italia when they face Napoli at Stadio San Paolo on Tuesday evening. However, the Partenopei are likely to pose a much bigger threat for Domenico Di Carlo’s men than their previous rivals and the underdogs will have to be at their sharpest if they are to make a miracle in Naples. Maurizio Sarri’s men came from behind to beat Sampdoria in their last league game and it has to be noted that Lorenzo Tonelli scored the winner in the dying seconds of the game. The Neapolitans extended their winning run at home to three games and we predict that they are going to record a routine win over Spezia in Tuesday’s football match. When the two teams met in Serie B ten years ago Napoli recorded a 3-1 win over the Little Eagles.
