It’s a relegation dogfight with both sides desperate for three points when Verona visit Spezia this weekend at the Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi. The Gialloblu have not lost to their weekend opponents in their last six meetings, winning all but one. But the Aquilotti are favorites going into Sunday’s clash.
The campaign has been a significant disappointment from a Spezia perspective following a busy summer transfer window. Having fired Thiago Motta in the summer and replaced him with Luca Gotti, the Aquilotti have picked up just two wins from their opening 13 games.
Simone Bastoni may be fit to return for Sunday’s game but will probably only make the bench. Viktor Kovalenko remains sidelined until the New Year, but Dimitrios Nikolaou is available once again at centre-back. Arkadiusz Reca will hope for a start having provided an assist in the defeat to Milan.
Fortunately for Sunday’s traveling side, their hosts have had an even worse campaign, with Verona currently on an eight-match losing streak, having won just once all season. Giangiacomo Magnani will slot back into the back line having served his one-match suspension mid-week.
Pawel Dawidowicz, Isak Hien and Federico Ceccherini will likely remain in the starting XI having missed last weekend’s defeat to Monza. Last weekend’s defeat to relegation candidates Monza has put further pressure on Salvatore Bocchetti to secure an all-important win on Sunday although a draw is more likely at the Bentegodi.
Overall, Spezia are slight favorites ahead of the clash, having put in spirited performances in defeat to Milan and Fiorentina in recent weeks. The visitors also have the benefit of an in-form forward with M’bala Nzola having scored twice as many goals as any other player that will feature on Sunday. Neither side has been particularly impressive going forward this season, yet two poor defenses could still result in a high-scoring match on Sunday.
