The Little Eagles welcome Venezia to the Stadio Alberto Picco on Saturday for this Serie A match. Saturday's match will be the first meeting between these two sides in La Spezia in the history of Serie A. Home advantage has been good for Spezia in this head to head in the past, with six of their seven victories coming in front of their own fans.
Spezia Calcio come into the match having picked up three points from a maximum of 18 from their last six matches.
Aquile lost their last league match away to Sassuolo Calcio. Expected goals of 2.4 to 0.3 in favour of Sassuolo indicates perhaps it was a fair result albeit a slightly harsh scoreline.
Daniele Verde’s equaliser before halftime wasn’t the start of a comeback but instead a mere consolation goal in the end. Verde now has six league goals this season for Spezia and is 2.87/1 to get on the scoresheet again here. The final score of the match was 4-1.
Their opponent on Saturday, Venezia, come into the match on a run of five league games without a win and have also failed to score in each of their last two league matches. They have picked up four points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.
The Winged Lions also lost their last league match at home to Sampdoria Genoa. Expected goals of 1.6 to 1.4 in favour of Venezia indicates they were a little unfortunate to get nothing from the match.
Perhaps the xG of the game is a little misleading though given that Sampdoria dominated the first half and got a two-goal lead before coasting through the second half in which Venezia created chances but failed to score. The final score of the match was 0-2.
David Okereke is Venezia’s top scorer with six goals in Serie A this season and is 4/1 to score against Spezia Calcio on Saturday.
