Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Tuesday’s football game at Stadio Paolo Mazza pits together Spal and Chievo, the two teams, who are eyeing promotion to the Serie A. Following six consecutive wins in the Serie B, Spal suffered a 2-0 loss to Cittadella in their last league match. The Biancazzurri have been impressive at their Stadio Paolo Mazza this season, with the team eyeing their fifth consecutive home win. Keep in mind, though, that Berisha, Dalessandro, Dickmann, and Floccari are all sidelined through injuries for the hosts.
Chievo, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-0 win over Reggina, but given their anything but brilliant away record, we are tempted to put our money on SPAL this time out. There are no absentees in the away team ahead of the trip to Ferrara. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be experienced attacker Alberto Paloschi.
