Spezia vs Inter Milan
Italy Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 21 April 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Alberto Picco, La Spezia.
Inter ended an 11-game winning streak on Sunday evening when they drew 1-1 at Napoli. Nonetheless, I Nerazzurri still have a healthy nine-point advantage on city rivals Milan at the very top of the Serie A standings and a miracle should happen for them not to claim Scudetto trophy.
Antonio Conte’s men will have a nice opportunity to instantly return to winning ways on Wednesday night when they travel to Stadio Alberto Picco to take on bottom-half Spezia on Matchday No 32.
Aquilotti suffered a tough 4-1 defeat at Bologna at the weekend. They are still seven points above the red zone line and should not feel such a massive pressure yet.
Of course, it is hard to expect points from the clash against the table-toppers, especially after shipping five goals to a mid-table side just three days ago. This is why we can hardly look past the away win pick here.
Spezia vs Inter Head-to-head
These two outfits did not have an opportunity to lock horns before this term of Serie A.
Inter celebrated a narrow 2-1 victory when they met each other for the first time ever in mid-December last year at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
Spezia vs Inter Milan Prediction
Antonio Conte has found the right formula to keep things tight defensively for his team lately. Inter have indeed been very tough to break down in the last couple of months. They did not ship more than one goal in 14 consecutive Serie A affairs. I Nerazzurri allowed only three goals in the last six league outings. Although they have not been the most prolific team in the division lately, we just can’t imagine a scenario in which Romelu Lukaku or Lautaro Martinez fail to deliver the goods past the leaky defence of Spezia’s.
The hosts have played in a completely opposite fashion to Inter’s recently. They will go into this off the back of six successive games in which both teams scored. Vincenzo Italiano’s men conceded at least two goals in four of the last five league matches. We’ll back the table-toppers and go with Inter to win by two or more goals difference at the odds of 2.05.
