Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Spezia did well to beat the odds in midweek, with the team shocking Napoli at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona. The Bianconeri did well to put an end to their three-game losing run in the Serie A, with the team recording their third triumph of the season. Spezia aim to escape the danger zone, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Monday’s clash.
Ismajli is banned for the match, while Bastoni, Acampora, and Ricci have all been tested positive for coronavirus. Verde, Mattiello, Zoet, Galabinov, and Capradossi are out of contention with injuries. La Samp are high on confidence following a 2-1 win over title-chasing Inter, and given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Both Gabbiadini and Ferrari are sidelined with injuries, while Ekdal will have to serve his ban against Spezia.
