Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Spezia and Empoli go head to head at Stadio Alberto Picco in the Serie A round 18. The Bianconeri failed to spoil Roma’s party at Stadio Olimpico (0-2), with the team remaining in the danger zone. Spezia are eager to put an end to their four-match winless run, but they face a difficult task in Sunday’s game. Sala has joined Leo’Sena in the recovery room, while Bourabia is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
The Azzurri, on the other hand, claimed a major scalp at the weekend, with the team beating Napoli on the road. Empoli are more of a team than Spezia, and given their signs of improvement, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the visitors. There are no fresh injury concerns in the away team ahead of the trip to Spezia.
