Spezia should have enough opportunities to score against this Roma team, albeit one goal might not be quite enough.
We’re aiming for a very competitive game with Roma winning closely after 90 minutes.
Spezia has lost just once in their last six matches, and they will be playing at home against Roma, but despite that the market deems them as underdogs in this @ 4.80!
Roma on the other hand, has not lost a single game in their last 6 matches, so they are coming in on a similar form too, but Mourinho’s side are 7th on the table!
Against the 16th placed Spezia Calcio, the travelling side of Mourinho are the favourites to win @ 1.86.
Spezia has made it a pattern of drawing games in recent times, they have drawn 3 of their last 5 games in the Serie A (W:2). The possibility of yet another stalemate against Roma, stands @ 3.80.
Total goals over/under
The odds that the total number of goals scored will be over 2.5, stands @ 2.10.
While the odds that the total number of goals will be under 2.5, stands @ 1.85.
Mourinho’s sides have a playing style that leans towards defensive play, so we often don’t see many goals in a Roma match!
So that has led the market to believes that this will be yet another low scoring contest, where Roma will win!
