Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Lecco will be aiming to extend their unbeaten run to four games when they take on Spezia in a postponed Serie B game. Lecco have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team beating both Pisa and Palermo, while sharing the spoils with Reggiana, meaning that they are high on confidence ahead of Wednesday’s clash. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
The Bianconeri, on the other hand, aim to recover from a 3-0 loss to Cremonese. As Spezia failed to win the previous four league fixtures, we do not believe that they are capable of grabbing more than one point from the midweek game. To make things even worse for the away team, defender Dimitrios Nikolaou misses out through suspension. You should know that under 2.5 goals have been netted in three of the previous four meetings between the two clubs.
Highlighted Team (Spezia):
Spezia is a professional Italian club based in Spezia, Liguria. The Bianconeri secured promotion to the Serie A in the 2019/20 season, with the team beating Frosinone in the Serie B playoffs final. Spezia are well known for their black and white home jerseys, and black is the dominant colour of their away kit.
The club’s home ground Stadio Alberto Picco has the capacity of 10,336 people. The venue was opened back in 1919, with architect Gregotti being in charge of the project. In 2002 the club chiefs decided to reach an agreement with Inter which saw Spezia become Inter’s feeder club.
As a result, the likes of Goran Pandev, Aco Stojkov, and Alex Cordaz joined the Bianconeri in the first season. Spezia then suffered a bankruptcy, but in 2008 they were re-founded. In the 2020/21 season the Bianconeri will compete in the Italian elite division for the first time ever.
