Spezia vs Benevento
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 6 March 2021
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Alberto Picco, La Spezia.
Both Spezia and Benevento have significantly complicated their top-flight lives by drastically falling in form in the last several weeks. The two sides are lock on 25 points in the bottom half of the standings ahead of the first game of the 26th round in Serie A on Saturday afternoon at Stadio Alberto Picco.
Aquilotti did nothing to harm the defending champions Juventus in a 3-0 defeat on Tuesday evening at Allianz Stadium. They have now taken just one point in the last three Serie A affairs. In Vincenzo Italiano’s defence, we have to say that his troops showed much better performances on the home patch lately. They won two, drew one, and lost one of the last four league outings at Stadio Alberto Picco. The streak includes an impressive 2-0 victory over Milan who sat at the very top of the ladder back then.
Spezia vs Benevento Head-to-head
- These two sides have battled it out in the second tier of Italian football just a year ago.
- Benevento claimed the maximum six points from two clashes against Aquilotti in the previous term of Serie B.
- Nevertheless, Spezia took a demolishing 0-3 win over Gli Stregoni when the two teams met this season in Serie A.
Spezia vs Benevento Prediction
While Spezia were capable of producing some sort of positive results recently, it was all about losses and draws for Benevento in the last couple of months. Filippo Inzaghi’s men just can’t catch a break as they will travel to La Spezia winless in nine straight league matches. Gli Stregoni have thus ruined everything they’ve done in a fantastic first half of the season.
The latest of Benevento’s failures came on Wednesday evening when they suffered a demolishing 0-3 home defeat to Hellas Verona. Inzaghi’s men have not scored a goal in three subsequent league matches.
We thus have to recognize the value in the 2.10 odds offered for Spezia to clinch a three-pointer in the first game of the Matchday.
We are also looking at backing Mbala N’Zola to score anytime past the vulnerable defence of Benevento’s. The French forward has scored 9 goals in 16 appearances for Aquilotti this season.
