Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Buoyed by a 2-1 win over fellow newcomers Empoli, Venezia will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Spezia on Matchday 4. I Lagunari’s main goal is to secure the Serie A survival, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to turn the dream into reality. All Aramu, Fiordilino, Peretz, and Lezzerini are likely to miss the game with injuries, while David Okereke is pushing for a start after finding the net in the triumph over Empoli.
The Bianconeri, on the other hand, failed to impress in back-to-back defeats to Lazio (1-6) and Udinese (0-1), and seeing that Venezia regained a much-needed confidence at the weekend, home win should be considered. Amian returns from suspension, but both Erlic and Neo’ Sena are out of contention through injuries, speaking of the visiting team. The two teams have never met before in the Serie A.
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 (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.
