Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Spezia will look to recover from a massive 4-0 loss to Como when they face Cremonese in the Serie B round 21. The Bianconeri suffered a dip in form, with the team conceding nine goals in total in the last three league matches and they must be low on confidence ahead of Saturday’s encounter. Reca continues to miss out with injury, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
The visiting team, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 3-2 loss to Palermo, with the team beating Cosenza in front of home fans. Cremonese have a chance to climb to the automatic promotion berth in the Serie B standings and we predict that they will take advantage of the current situation in Spezia’s dressing room. Both Mouhamadou Sarr and Felix Afena-Gyan are out of contention for the visiting team.
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.
