Football Whispers' Predictions for Spezia vs Bologna

Bologna go in search of their first win in Serie A this season at the fifth attempt when they make the trip to Spezia on Sunday. The hosts have picked up 4pts from their opening four matches but don't have the best of records against Bologna in recent seasons.

Bologna to Win

Bologna have won each of their last three meetings with Spezia in Serie A, claiming a 1-0 win in this very fixture last season. We're backing the visitors to pick up a 3pts and move ahead of Spezia in the table this weekend but expect the game to be closely fought. Spezia failed to win their last home game against Sassuolo and have lost two of their last three outings in Serie A. Bologna have faced two tough away games so far against AC Milan and Lazio but only narrowly lost on both occasions.

Marko Arnautovic to Score

Bologna might not have made a fast start to the new Serie A season but their top scorer from the previous campaign has. Former Stoke City frontman, Marko Arnautovic, has scored all of Bologna's three goals so far this season and we're backing the Austrian international to find the back of the net against Spezia this weekend. The 33-year-old scored 14 goals in Serie A last season and was subject of interest from Man Utd over the summer, so you can see why we're backing him to score on Sunday.

Can Bologna secure their first win of the season?

Spezia made the trip to Juventus in midweek and fell behind after just 9-minutes to a goal from Vlahovic. While Spezia managed to stop the floodgates from opening, the visitors didn't offer much of a threat going forward and in second-half stoppage-time, Juve confirmed their win with a goal from their new signing Milik.

Spezia Predicted Lineup – Drągowski, Nikolaou, Bastoni, Hristov, Kiwior, Holm, Bourabia, Reca, Kovalenko, Nzola & Gyasi

Bologna would have been very disappointed not to have secured their first win in midweek when they played host to Salernitana. A penalty from Arnautovic put the home side in front early in the second forty-five and as the time ebbed away it looked like Bologna had done enough to win the game. However, Salernitana ventured forward 2-minutes from time and Dia fired home an equaliser much to the dismay of the Bologna faithful.

Bologna Predicted Lineup – Skorupski, Soumaoro, Lucumí, Kasius, Cambiaso, Medel, Schouten, Vignato, Domínguez, Arnautović & Sansone

Team News

Spezia: Salvador Ferrer is a doubt and Kelvin Amian Adou isn't expected back in action until October.
