AS Roma vs Spezia: Prediction and Betting Tips
AS Roma need to regroup
AS Roma are in the midst of a frustratingly inconsistent patch. Indeed, the Giallorosi have won three and lost four of their last seven assignments since late October in Serie A. In their last two fixtures, Jose Mourinho’s side lose to nil which left Roma nine points away from the top four. Moreover, if Roma lose this match, it will be just the third time that Mourinho has lost three consecutive matches in his career.
However, the Giallorossi have won all of their matches against teams who placed outside the top ten so far this term. Despite that, Mourinho must be concerned about his team’s recent home form. In fact, Roma have won just one of their last four games at the Olimpico. In addition, the Giallorossi scored just twice in that spell and conceded five which highlights their attacking problems as well as defensive weaknesses.
Spezia in search for a positive result
Going into this match, Spezia are in deep trouble as they are battling to stay away from the relegation zone. Although the Little Eagles halted a three-game losing streak with a 2-2 draw in the last round, they need to collect more points. Hence, Spezia are traveling to Rome with last season’s 3-0 win at the Olimpico on their minds and hoping to repeat a similar outcome.
The habit of dropping points continues to haunt Thiago Motta’s team. In fact, Spezia have now dropped a joint-league high 15 points after taking the lead this season. Moreover, Spezia’s away form is one of the worst in Serie A. The Little Eagles lost their last five road trip games, while an average of 3.13 goals conceded per 90 minutes on the road makes Motta’s task even harder to challenge for a point here.
AS Roma vs Spezia Prediction
Moral will be high at Roma after they finished top of their group in the Conference League last week and Jose Mourinho will be determined to put an end to his team’s unstable form and by securing a win here. For that scenario, the bookies have priced Roma as the favorites to win at odds of 1.40.
In the goals market, Roma’s last four of five home matches saw over 2.5 goals. Likewise, Speazia’s four of five away games saw the same number of goals and looking at both teams’ defensive performances recently, we can see that Roma and Spezia are vulnerable at the back.
To wrap up, we think we will see over 2.5 goals in this match which was the case as well in the clubs’ last three meetings, while backing both teams to score also appeals at the prices on offer.
