Genoa will welcome Spezia to Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris for a matchday 21 fixture in Italy Serie A. The last meeting on 26th October 2021 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met four times in the most recent seasons. Genoa has won 2 matches, and Spezia failed to win on every occasion. Recent outings average 2.75 goals, while both teams score 75% of the time.
Genoa's latest fixture against Sassuolo ended in an away 1-1 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair. Genoa set the tone early and scored in the 6 minute.
Spezia's recent game against Hellas Verona ended in a home 1-2 loss. Spezia's strikers were frustrated by the lack of good chances. Spezia deserved to score in the second half and did so in the 85th minute.
So far, Zena plays better on the road than at home. They win 0.67 points per away game on average compared to 0.45 points at home. Although Genoa is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 27% home clean sheets.
Spezia has picked up 13 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Spezia wins 1.08 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Spezia kept a clean sheet in just 17% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Draw or Spezia.
Both teams struggle in defence and concede on regular occasions. Genoa failed to keep a clean sheet in 27% of home games, while Spezia conceded in 17% of away games. On average, both teams score in 53% of Genoa's home and Spezia's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
