Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Stadio Romeo Menti will host Saturday’s football game between Vicenza and Spal, the two teams who shared the spoils with Salernitana and Empoli respectively at the weekend. The Biancorossi just can’t find their best form in the 2020/21 season, with the team recording no more than five win in the process. Even though Ierardi should be the only absentee in Domenico Di Carlo’s team, home win should not be considered.
Spal, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their one-month winless run in the Italian second tier. The Spallini came from behind to share the spoils with Empoli in their last league match, and given Vicenza’s anything but splendid form in 2021, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. In their last meeting at Stadio Romeo Menti the two teams shared the spoils. Spal boss has no fresh injury worries ahead of the trip to Veneto.
