Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Stadio Alberto Picco will host Saturday’s football game between Spezia and Napoli, the two teams with totally different ambitions in the season finale. The Bianconeri are fighting hard to secure the Serie A survival, while the Neapolitans are eyeing a place in the Champions League. Spezia do not seem to be at their sharpest at the moment, with the team failing to win the previous four league fixtures, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as underdogs in Saturday’s clash.
Nzola is banned for the match, while Mattiello remains sidelined through injury. Genaro Gattuso’s men, on the other hand, dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Cagliari, meaning that they are desperate to emerge triumphant in the Stadio Alberto Picco showdown. Napoli are more of a team than Spezia, and seeing that Gattuso can count on key players, away win should be considered.
