Spezia is hosting Juventus at Orogel Stadium-Dino Manuzzi in round 6 in the Italian Serie A.
Spezia has lost only 1 of their last 5 games, and they are in solid form in Serie A. with 5 points, 7 scored goals, and 11 conceded goals, Spezia is in 15th place in the Serie A standings. In their last match against Parma on the road, Spezia has had 52% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 82% of the correct passes. Spezia was leading 1-2 at the half time, but they couldn’t defend for the entire second half, and Spezia has conceded a goal in the 92nd minute from the penalty spot. This match ended in a 2-2 draw. Galabinov is the leading goalscorer for Spezia with 3 goals, while Bastoni, Nzola, Rafael, Terzi, Ricci, and Gyasi have each added 1 assist. The injury list in Spezia is long, and Capradossi, Mattiello, Mastinu, Zoet, Galabinov, Ramos, Erlic, and Acampora are all on that list, and they will miss this game. For a newcomer to Serie A, Spezia is doing a fantastic job, but I’m afraid all the injuries will impact their game, and this is where their downfall starts. The good news for Spezia is that there is an international break coming up, which will give them the opportunity to regroup.
Juventus is also undefeated in Serie A, but they have only 2 wins, and 3 draws in Serie A so far this season. Juventus is in 6th place with 9 points, 10 scored goals, and 4 conceded goals. The breaking news for Juventus is that Ronaldo has tested negative for the Coronavirus, and he will be on the roster for this game, but he will not start, as coach Pirlo has confirmed. In their latest Serie A game, Juventus was hosting Verona, and they have had 61% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a solid 87% of the correct passes. Juventus was losing in the 60th minute, but they were able to tie the game in the 77th minute. The final score of this game was 1-1. Ronaldo has scored 3 goals for Juventus this season, while Kulusevski added 2 goals. De Ligt and Sandro are both injured, and they will miss this game. Chiellini is still questionable. Juventus has played against Barcelona in the Champions League earlier this week, and even though they had some good chances, and 3 canceled goals by Morata, Juventus has lost this match 0-2. I think Juventus is playing well this season, different than the last, but they are still pretty inconsistent in the attacking end, but now that Ronaldo is back, I see Juventus getting back to scoring goals.
The last two games Spezia and Juventus have played against each other were back in 2007, and Spezia has won 1 game, while the other one ended in a draw. Juventus is the better team here, and they have far fewer injuries. I’m siding with Juventus on the road in this one.
