Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Udinese will be aiming to record their first win of the season when they take on Spezia at Dacia Arena in a postponed fixture. The Zebrette kicked off the new Serie A campaign with a 1-0 loss to Verona, but their performance in the season opener was anything but poor. Udinese failed to turn their dominance into goals in the defeat at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi, and it is no wonder they are seen as favourites to win the midweek clash.
The likes of Jajalo and Mandragora are likely to miss the game with injury for the hosts. Spezia, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the opening match of the season, with the team losing 4-1 to Sassuolo at home. The newcomers face a difficult task in the Dacia Arena clash, and given Udinese’s display in the second half of the match against Verona, home win should be considered.
