Spezia will be welcomed to Roma at the Stadio Olimpico on the 17th matchday in the Serie A campaign. The last time these two sides met was 23 May 2021 when they drew 2/2. In recent seasons, the two sides met four times. Spezia has won one, while Roma won one. Both teams have had half of the scoring chances in their last two games, which averaged 3.5 goals per match.
Roma lost against Inter Milan 0-3. It was not surprising that the final result came out as expected. Roma didn’t have enough possession time and had very few chances to score.
Spezia’s match against Sassuolo was a draw at home, ending in a 2-2 result. This performance earned them a point. Spezia had great chances in the first and second halves and scored in the 35th as well as the 47th minutes.
Magica has been dominant at home since the beginning of the season. They have won five out of eight matches played at home. Their success has been attributed to Roma’s excellent defensive performance. They have not conceded in half of their home matches.
Spezia has four points from six league games. They have much to prove in their away matches. Spezia is averaging 0.50 points per away match, which is slightly less than their home record. They will need to strengthen their defense to improve their results. Spezia has a 0% chance to keep a clean sheet away.
It’s not surprising that the hosts are the favorites to win this title. Although Lupa lost their last game at home they still have many advantages over their opponents. They won 63% in their home games, giving them confidence for the remainder of the tournament.
Spezia has not won any of the five matches they have played on the road. It would surprise no one if Spezia beat Lupa on Monday. Their away record is also very poor, with five consecutive away losses.
