Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Stadio Paolo Mazza will host Saturday’s Serie B game between Spal and Monza. The Gli Spallini quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Pisa, with the team rolling over Pordenone 5-0 before the international break. Teenage attacker Lorenzo Colombo should keep his place up front as a lone forward after opening his goal-scoring account in the triumph over Pordenone.
Monza, on the other hand, continue life without Kevin-Prince Boateng and Mario Balotelli, who left the club in the summer transfer window. Considering that the Biancorossi are not regarded as good travelers, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Spal. Denmark international Christian Gytkjaer is pushing for a start for the visiting team after scoring the winner against Cremonese. In their last encounter in the Italian second tier the two teams played out a 1-1 draw.
