Napoli vs Spezia
Italy Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 6 January 2021
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Diego Armando Maradona, Naples.
Napoli finally returned to the winning ways as they beat Cagliari (1-4) over the weekend as Zielinski (x2), Lozano, and Insigne all found the net. They ended a three-match winless streak where Inter (1-0) and Lazio (2-0) beat them on the road and Torino (1-1) snatched a point in Naples, now desperate to rediscover consistency.
Partenopei sit 4th with 28 points to their name and a game in hand to all sides above them. They have been scoring numbers of goals at Diego Armando Maradona Stadium quite regularly and will surely want to show off once again, as Gattuso bases their success on an attacking approach despite some injury woes.
Spezia, on the other hand, dropped into the relegation zone with a home loss to Verona (0-1) to kick off the new year. They now suffered three losses in a row and although we’ve seen some very tough challenges this term – including the defeats to Inter (2-1) and Genoa (1-2) in December – we feel it will be very tough to recuperate at this point.
Napoli vs Spezia Head-to-head
- Napoli beat Spezia (3-1) here in January 2017 and made their way past the rivals in Coppa Italia.
- Partenopei have never seen a loss to Spezia with five head-to-head clashes behind them.
- Spezia were denied points back in 2006/07 when they met in Serie B.
Napoli vs Spezia Prediction
Spezia have struggled lately and we feel this could prove costly here, as Napoli should be able to pounce and capitalize on chances created. We’ve seen them in good shape last week and we’ll back them to build on the performance, but we don’t see it as smooth sailing as we go for a Home win and a YES on Both teams to score at 2.75.
With that in mind, we are making a case for another high-scoring contest in Naples and we’ll go for Over 3.5 Goals FT, which comes at 2.20 and has caught the eye of many. Spezia will have everything to play for and we hope for an attacking approach, which goes in line with our prediction here.
