Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Buoyed by a 2-0 win over Lazio in the Derby della Capitale, Roma will be aiming to book their place in the Europa Conference League when they face Spezia in the last game of the season. The Romans missed out on a place in the Champions League, but a win over Spezia will see them represent Italy in European competitions for yet another term. Even though all Calafiori, Spinazzola, Diawara, Pellegrini, Veretout, Pau Lopez, Zaniolo, Ibanez, and Smalling are sidelined with injuries, away win should be considered.
Spezia, on the other hand, secured the Serie A survival thanks to a 4-1 win over Torino. The Bianconeri have already got their job done, meaning that a loss to Roma would not hurt them too much. Farias is banned for the hosts, while Mattiello and Chabot remain in the treatment room. In the first half of the season Roma defeated Spezia 4-3 thanks to Pellegrini’s stoppage-time goal.
