The Little Eagles welcome Atalanta BC to the Stadio Alberto Picco on Sunday for this Serie A match. Spezia looked safe a few weeks back but could easily get sucked into the drop zone if their losing run continues with the sides below them all picking up the odd win where they are not.
Atalanta are one of four teams battling over the UEFA Europa League and UEFA Europa Conference League places next season. However, they are currently three points behind the two Roma based clubs and can’t afford to drop any more points as they have done the previous two weekends.
Spezia Calcio come into the match on a run of four league games without a win. They have picked up four points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.
Aquile lost their last league match at home to Lazio Roma. Expected goals of 3.1 to 1.6 in favour of Lazio indicates perhaps it was a fair result. Ivan Provedel will be disappointed with his own goal here which made Spezia's task a more difficult one. The final score of the match was 3-4.
Daniele Verde is Spezia Calcio’s top scorer with six goals in Serie A this season and is the 12/1 favourite to score the opening goal against Atalanta BC on Sunday.
Their opponent on Sunday, Atalanta BC, come into the match on a run of three league games undefeated. They have picked up five points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.
The Goddess shared the points in their last league match at home to US Salernitana. Expected goals of 1.5 to 1.4 in favour of Atalanta indicates both teams probably deserved only a point. It was Mario Pasalic's late goal that proved enough to rescue a point for Atalanta having been chasing the game since midway through the first half. Pasalic now has 12 league goals this season for Atalanta and is 6/1 to get the final goal of the game once again here. The final score of the match was 1-1.

Kevin Agudelo wasn’t able to complete the match against Lazio and was withdrawn with ten minutes left on the clock. Viktor Kovalenko will hope to take his place if he hasn’t recovered in time for this one. Ebrima Colley and Leo Sena will be unavailable for The Little Eagles due to injury on Sunday.
Spezia Calcio may look to make a few unforced changes to the side who lost against Lazio Roma in their last league match. Emmanuel Gyasi was particularly disappointing and could find himself on the bench here.
Atalanta BC team news
Injuries will rule out Rafael Tolói, Giuseppe Pezzella (torn groin), Josip Ilicic (depression), and Bryan Cabezas (cruciate ligament) for the trip to the Stadio Alberto Picco.
Atalanta BC may look to shuffle their deck voluntarily having drawn against US Salernitana in their last league match. Duván Zapata had a torrid time in front of goal before being subbed off early in the first half and could lose his place leading the line for the trip to Spezia.
