Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Stadio Alberto Picco will host Sunday’s football game between Spezia and Monza. The Bianconeri are eyeing their first league win since March 10, 2023 when they shocked Inter and they are desperate to move away from the danger zone. Wales defender Ethan Ampadu is back from suspension, while all Moutinho, Beck, Zovko, Zurkowski, and Holm remain on the sidelines with injuries.
The Biancorossi, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Inter and Fiorentina, but they have little to play for in the remainder of the season. Considering that Spezia are desperate to secure the Serie A survival, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the relegation-threatened hosts. Since Stefano Sensi has overcome his injury, Raffaele Palladino should have a full squad to choose from. In the first half of the season Monza defeated Spezia 2-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Team (Spezia):
Spezia is a professional Italian club based in Spezia, Liguria. The Bianconeri secured promotion to the Serie A in the 2019/20 season, with the team beating Frosinone in the Serie B playoffs final. Spezia are well known for their black and white home jerseys, and black is the dominant colour of their away kit.
The club’s home ground Stadio Alberto Picco has the capacity of 10,336 people. The venue was opened back in 1919, with architect Gregotti being in charge of the project. In 2002 the club chiefs decided to reach an agreement with Inter which saw Spezia become Inter’s feeder club.
As a result, the likes of Goran Pandev, Aco Stojkov, and Alex Cordaz joined the Bianconeri in the first season. Spezia then suffered a bankruptcy, but in 2008 they were re-founded. In the 2020/21 season the Bianconeri will compete in the Italian elite division for the first time ever.
