Our prediction for this Serie A match:
After dropping two points in a 1-1 draw with Verona, Juventus will be looking to return to winning ways when they take on Spezia at Stadio Alberto Picco. In Cristiano Ronaldo’s absence, Dejan Kulusevski produced a brilliant display in the previous two games in all competitions, and the 24-year-old Swedish winger is pushing for yet another start. Speaking of CR7, he should return to the starting XI after overcoming coronavirus.
Juve failed to turn their dominance into victory in the 1-1 draw with Verona, and they are surely capable of beating Spezia on Matchday 6. The hosts head into Sunday’s match following back-to-back draws with Fiorentina and Parma, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against the title holders. Leonardo Bonucci picked up a knock at the weekend, but he should recover in time to face Spezia. Anyhow, we predict that the Italian giants will return to winning ways in the Serie A this weekend.
Highlighted Player (Luca Mora):
Luca Mora began his senior career at Castellarano (2007-2009) and in 2009 he moved to fellow lower-league club Crociati Noceto. Two years later he signed for Pro Patria and after making 32 appearances in the league for the club, Mora joined Alessandria.
The Italian midfielder, who was born in Parma on May 10, 1988, quickly established himself as a first team regular at the club and you should know that he scored six goals in 86 appearances in the league for L’ Orso. In 2015 he moved to SPAL and he has been playing for the Biancazzurri ever since.
Luca Mora scored seven goals, while providing three assists for his team mates in 35 appearances for SPAL in the 2016/2017 season. Mora’s main position is central midfield, but he plays as a left midfielder as well. His contract with SPAL, who will compete in the Serie A in the 2017/2018 season, expires on June 30, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Juventus):
Juventus are considered one of the greatest European football clubs. The Bianconeri (The White and Blacks) have won two Champions League trophies (1985, 1996) and they did well to clinch three UEFA Cup titles (1977, 1990, 1993). The Italian giants have won 32 Serie A trophies and it is well known that a number of star players were part of Juve in the past.
The likes of Alessandro Del Piero, Zinedine Zidane, Michel Platini, Lilian Thuram, Filippo Inzaghi, Pavel Nedved and David Trezeguet all played for Juventus, whilst legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has yet to retire. Juve were stripped two domestic trophies during the “Calciopoli” scandal, but despite being relegated to Serie B, the club quickly brought glory days back to Turin. The Bianconeri used to play their home games at Stadio delle Alpi, but nowadays they welcome their rivals at Juventus Stadium.
The capacity of the stadium is 41,475. La Vechhia Signora (The Old Lady) is yet another nickname of the club. Juve’s biggest rivals are Torino and the two local rivals take on each other in the Turin derby.
