Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Chievo play host to Spezia at their Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi in the Serie B playoffs semis, first leg. Thanks to a 1-1 draw with Empoli, the Mussi Volanti set up a meeting with the Bianconeri, and, no doubt, they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the upcoming double header. Chievo have been impressive at the back, and we are positive that they will rely on their rock-solid defence in Saturday’s football match.
Despite failing to convert a penalty in the 1-1 draw with Empoli, Serbia international Filip Djordjevic will lead the line for the hosts. Experienced midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini, on the other hand, misses the game with injury. Spezia finished the regular season in third place in the standings, seven points behind automatic promotion places. Considering that under 2.5 goals have been netted in four of Spezia’s last five league fixtures, a low-scoring affair is on the cards in the “City of Love”.
