Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Spezia and Verona go head to head at Stadio Alberto Picco on day 15 of the new Serie A campaign. Spezia recorded their last league win on November 7, 2020, with the team beating Benevento on the road 3-0, and, no doubt, they are eager to put an end to their seven-game winless run in the national championship. The newcomers are likely to fight tooth and nail against Verona, and we are positive that they will grab something from the match.
Terzi is banned for the game, while Verde, Mattiello, Capradossi, Leo’ Sena, Ferrer, Zoet, Galabinov, and Dell’orco remain in the recovery room. Verona, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Inter. The Mastini failed to win the previous three league fixtures, but, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the Spezia clash as well. Even though Dawidowicz, Favilli, Di Carmine, Vieira, Lovato, and Benassi are all sidelined with injuries, share of spoils is on the cards at Stadio Alberto Picco.

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.

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.
