Preliminary Review and Match Prediction for Spezia vs Napoli 

Gathering 36 points from 37 games in Serie A, Spezia survived in the top flight of Italian football for the second consecutive season. Notably, the Little Eagles had almost the same season as they did in the last one as their stats suggest that they had two fewer points than they did the last term at this stage. 

In the last round, Spezia beat Udinese 3-2 in Udine ending a five-match unbeaten run and four straight defeats. Surely, coach Thiago Motta will hope to end the season with a positive result. To point out, Spezia conceded at least one goal in 14 of their 18 home games and lost their last three home matches. 

Napoli’s rocket start to the season wasn’t enough to win the Scudetto for the first time since 1990. In fact, the Blues topped the Serie A for 12 rounds at the start of the season but somehow allowed both Milan teams to topple them. In the last eight games, Napoli are performing at their best again. 

To illustrate, Spaletti’s team picked up 16 points from the last eight rounds. Also, upfront, the likes of Mertens Insigne and Osimhen are showing great form and raised Napoli’s average of goals scored to 2.50 in eight fixtures. That is a 30% increase from their season average of 1.92 goals per game. 

Spezia vs Napoli Prediction 

We expect an open game as both teams want to end the season with a victory. Four of the last five h2h matches produced over 2.5 goals and we predict a similar outcome combined with a double chance of a home or away win. 

Safe Bet

The average total number of corners in Spezia games is 9.73 while Napoli’s is 9.08. At home, Spezia usually win 4.00 corners per game and their opponents, 5.50. Thus, with odds of 1.52 at Vbet, we predict to see over 8.5 corners in this match.

Get Rich Quick

The second half of Spezia’s last five matches saw two or more goals. Likewise, in the second half of Napoli’s three of their last four games, there were two or more goals. With odds of 2.85 at Vbet, we will back for the second half in this game to produce over 2.5 goals.
