Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Spezia and Bologna, the two teams who were hammered by Crotone (1-4) and Roma (1-5) respectively at the weekend, take on each other in the Serie A round 12 on Wednesday evening. Spezia extended their winless run in the national championship to four games, but the midweek clash against Bologna could be the turning point for the hosts. Julian Chabot, who collected his fifth yellow card in the loss to Crotone, misses the Bologna game through suspension.
Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the 5-1 loss to Roma, and they must be low on spirits ahead of the trip to Liguria. Anyhow, both teams to score betting option should be considered as both sides are likely to go for a win in the Stadio Alberto Picco showdown. When the two teams met in Coppa Italia last month Spezia defeated Bologna 4-2 after penalties.
