Lazio vs Spezia Prediction & Match Preview



03 April 2021 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET Serie A Stadio Olimpico

Buoyed by a hard-fought 1-0 win over Udinese, Lazio will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Spezia at Stadio Olimpico. 

The Biancocelesti are eager to keep their Champions League hopes alive, and we are positive that they will go all-out attack in Saturday’s football match. 

Since Simone Inzaghi has a full squad to choose from, except for Luiz Felipe and Fares, we believe that home win should be considered.

The Bianconeri, on the other hand, are tough to beat at home, but given their three-game losing run on the road, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the capital club. 

In the first half of the season Lazio defeated Spezia, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the home side. All Estevez, Ramos, Galabinov, and Saponara are out of contention for the visitors.

Team News:

Lazio midfielder Luis Alberto will undergo medical examinations on an ankle problem before Saturday but is expected to miss the game with Spezia.

The Spaniard suffered the injury in training on Wednesday after receiving a strong challenge from defender Nicolo Armini.

Defenders Luiz Felipe (ankle) and Mohamed Fares (knee) are also unavailable for selection with injuries.

Forwards Joaquin Correa and Felipe Caicedo are hoping to earn their place back in the starting lineup ahead of Vedat Muriqi, who has begun the last two matches.

Spezia trio Nahuel Estevez, Ivan Provedel and Juan Ramos all remain out after testing positive for coronavirus, while Federico Mattiello (fatigue) and Riccardo Saponara (ankle) are also unavailable for selection.

Italiano is unlikely to make too many changes to his first XI but could start top scorer M'Bala Nzola ahead of Piccoli up front, while winger Daniele Verde may also feature at the expense of Diego Farias.

Lazio possible starting lineup:
Reina; Patric, Acerbi, Radu; Lazzari, Escalante, Leiva, Milinkovic-Savic, Marusic; Correa, Immobile

Spezia possible starting lineup:
Zoet; Vignali, Ismajili, Erlic, Bastoni; Pobega, Ricci, Maggiore; Verde, Nzola, Gyasi
