Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Buoyed by a 2-0 win over Venezia, Milan will be aiming to stay in the title race when they take on Spezia at Stadio Alberto Picco on Saturday afternoon. The Rossoneri are eyeing their fifth win of the season, and they should take advantage of Spezia’s shaky defence. All Kjaer, Calabria, Krunic, Bakayoko, and Ibrahimovic are sidelined with injuries, but Olivier Giroud is back to contention. Theo Hernandez is pushing for a start after finding the net in the midweek triumph.
The hosts, on the other hand, suffered a 3-2 loss to Juventus on Wednesday evening despite taking the lead after 49 minutes. Spezia have been struggling at the back in the new Serie A campaign, and seeing that they have already conceded 13 goals in the process, away win should be considered. All Colley, Erlic, Agudelo, Leo’ Sena, and Kovalenko miss out with injuries for the hosts.
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 (Milan):
AC Milan are regarded as one of the biggest club in Italy. The Rossoneri compete in the Italian Serie A and they have won 18 domestic trophies. Speaking of the club’s European success, Milan have clinched seven Champions League (European Cup) trophies.
Milan were on the verge of beating Liverpool in the 2005 Champions League final, but the Premier League outfit came from three goals behind and eventually won the prestigious trophy on penalties. The Rossoneri play their home games at Stadio San Siro (80,018), the stadium that was opened in 1926. It is well known that Milan’s bitterest rivals are Inter and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals face each other in the Derby della Madonnina.
Milan were founded in 1899 by a lace-maker from England named Herbert Kilpin and a businessman Alfred Edwards. Milan’s home kits are red and black and that is why the team’s nickname is Rossoneri (The Red and Blacks).
The likes of Alessandro Costacurta, Paolo Maldini, Franco Baresi, Roberto Donadoni, Dejan Savicevic, Frank Rijkaard, Marco van Basten, Ruud Gullit and Andrea Pirlo are the most famous footballers who have represented the San Siro outfit.
