Hellas Verona is welcoming Spal to Marc Antonio Bentegodi in round 37 in Italian Serie A.
It’s a good thing Verona has secured their Serie A status even before the restart because they have been in a terrible form since the restart. Verona has won only 2 of their last 11 games in Serie A, and they have conceded at least 1 goal in all of those games. With 46 points, Verona is now in 9th place in the standings, far away from the relegation zone. Nobody expected Verona to be this high in the standings this season, but their defense was solid, and that is the biggest reason why Verona is this high. Verona has conceded 48 goals so far this season while scoring 44 goals.in their latest Serie A game against Lazio at home, Verona has had 56% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, and solid 82% of the correct passes. The first half was good for Verona, and the score was 1-1, but in the second half Verona was playing bad on the defensive end, and they conceded 4 goals. Verona has lost this match 1-5. Pessina is Verona’s top goalscorer with 7 goals, while Di Carmine added 6 goals. Lazovic has 7 assists. Pazzini, Kumbulla, and Adjapong are all injured and will not be in the lineup for this game. Overall, this was a decent season for Verona, and they certainly have a lot to be sorry for. Maybe the next season will be even better.
Spal is the weakest team in Serie A, and they are deservedly in the last place in the standings with only 20 points, 26 scored goals, and massive 71 conceded goals. Spal has 8 losses and 2 draws since the season restart, and they have scored only 6 goals in their last 10 games while conceding 27 goals. Petagna is Spal’s top goalscorer with 12 goals and he will most likely be leaving the club. Berisha is the only injured player, while Castro, Floccari, and Sala are all still questionable for this match. In their latest Serie A match against Torino at home, Spal has had 55% of ball possession, but only 1 shot on goal, 0 corner kicks, and decent 84% of the correct passes. This match ended in a 1-1 draw. I’ve said this before, but it is better for Spal to get relegated to Serie B where they will be able to win more games and be more competitive, especially if they lose some of their strongest players after the season ends. Good luck in Serie B next season, Spal.
Verona is the better team here, but they have never actually beaten Spal at home. Neither Verona nor Spal are playing well at the moment, but Verona has been doing something unusual for them as of late, and that is dominating the possession. I will side with Verona at home in this match.
