Today's Predictions for Spezia vs Monza

Spezia have won only one of their last 13 matches in Serie A ahead of their tussle with Monza on Friday evening. Read our top Spezia vs Monza predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Monza Draw no Bet

Monza showcased their ability to upset the odds again at the weekend when they beat red-hot Fiorentina 3-2, just a little over a week after they had produced another surprise win at Inter Milan. Raffaele Palladino’s troops should be high on confidence following their back-to-back victories and Monza could put more points on the board when they visit Spezia on Friday. The hosts have failed to win 12 of their last 13 Serie A fixtures and our opening Spezia vs Monza prediction recommends opposing them. Spezia have tied in four of their last five however, so side with Monza in the draw no bet stakes for a safety net.

Both Teams to Score

For the second of our football betting tips today, we’re lining up a bet in the goal markets, where both teams to score catches the eye at a backable price. Spezia have swapped goals with their opponents in four of their last six fixtures, while BTTS has also landed in five of Monza’s last seven tussles in the division. With those records digested, a wager on both teams to notch is favoured again at the odds quoted.

Spezia vs Monza Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Spezia vs Monza lineups and team news for Friday’s encounter below.

Spezia

João Moutinho has a muscle complaint and is a doubt for Spezia this week, while Peter Zovko has been ruled out. Emil Holm won't play again this season and will be a big miss from Spezia's defence. Third from bottom Spezia drew 1-1 at relegation rivals Sampdoria at the weekend.

Predicted Lineup for Spezia: Zoet – Amian, Wisniewski, Nikolaou, Bastoni – Ekdal, Esposito, Bourabia – Gyasi, Maldini, M'Bala Nzola

Monza

Monza have a strong squad at present and their treatment room is virtually deserted ahead of Friday's game. Monza's win over Fiorentina last time out allowed them to move up to 12th position in the Serie A table with seven games left to contest.

Predicted Lineup for Monza: Di Gregorio – Izzo, Mari, Caldirola  – Ciurria, Pessina, Rovella, Augusto – Colpani, Caprari, Mota

Player to Watch – Matteo Pessina

Matteo Pessina was Monza’s match-winner at the weekend when he netted the game’s decisive fifth goal from the spot in his club’s 3-2 win over Fiorentina. The 26-year-old has now scored four goals and claimed two assists for the campaign in Serie A and Pessina has the technical skills to make a difference again on Friday.
