Spezia Draw no Bet

Two of Serie A’s prime relegation candidates meet at the Stadio Alberto Picco on Sunday when Spezia collide with Verona, and we’re tipping the hosts to harness home advantage against their rivals for the drop. With just four points collected in total on the road, Verona have the division’s worst away record, while Spezia have avoided defeat in eight out of 12 assignments at home. We aren’t quite confident enough to back the hosts to win this weekend however, though a stake on the Aquilotti in the draw no bet market could be an avenue to explore.

Both Teams to Score – No

Our second Spezia vs Verona prediction tips into the goal markets and we’re tipping both teams not to score at the Stadio Alberto Picco this weekend. Spezia have failed to register in four games on the spin on home soil, while Verona (six) have notched fewer times in their travels than any other outfit in Serie A. With few reliable goal-getters likely to be on show on Sunday, bettors are advised to back both teams not to score.

Spezia vs Verona Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Spezia vs Verona lineups and team news for Sunday’s fixture below.

Spezia

Keeper Jeroen Zoet and defender Emil Holm are out injured for Spezia. Joao Moutinho is listed as a doubt, while Simone Bastoni is out of action in midfield with a knee issue. Spezia earned a point thanks to a 2-2 draw at Udinese last time out, though they are still fourth from bottom in the standings.

Predicted Lineup for Spezia: Dragowski – Amian, Ampadu, Nikolaou, Reca – Bourabia, Ekdal, Verde, Agudelo, Gyasi – Nzola

Verona

Federico Ceccherini, Suleman Kakari, Milan Djuric and Thomas Henry are listed as injured for Verona, while Ajdin Hrustic and Miguel Veloso are doubtful. Verona limped to a 3-0 loss at home to Fiorentina last weekend, and they are still languishing in Serie A's drop zone, three points from safety.

Predicted Lineup for Verona: Montipo – Magnani, Hien, Dawidowicz – Faraoni, Tameze, Duda, Doig – Lazovic, Ngonge, Lasagna

Player to Watch – M'Bala Nzola

M'Bala Nzola scored twice for Spezia last weekend in the club’s 2-2 draw at Udinese and the Angolan attacker will be determined to do some more damage against Verona on Sunday. The 26-year-old also bagged a brace when Spezia beat Verona 2-1 in November and M’Bala Nzola will be aiming to punish the same defence on Sunday.
