Date: 11.01.2021 | Match at: 20:45 | League: ITALY: Serie A – Round 17 | Tip: X2 | Odds: 1.40 | Bookie: Unibet
- The Ligurian derby will bring together two teams that ahead of the round have seen a league high 13 of their matches produce over 2.5 match goals this campaign. Serie A (SA) newcomers Spezia sprang a huge surprise last round with a 2-1 win at Napoli, a match that saw them score twice beyond the hour mark to end their eight match winless league run (D3, L5).
- Bottom of the home table with zero wins (D3, L5), Spezia’s last five games here have at least been close with each of the three defeats coming via a one-goal margin. Goals seem a given, seeing six of Spezia‘s eight home SA outings have produced over 2.5 match goals and seen both teams score. They’ve led at the break just once in the league here however, opening the scoring just twice (D1, L1).
- Sampdoria’s last match saw them become only the second SA side to beat Inter this season (2-1), netting twice before the break. Consequently, nine of their previous ten competitive matches have seen both teams score and over 2.5 match goals. That said, the first strike has been crucial, as the winner has opened the scoring in the last five in a row (W3, L2).
- Inconsistent on the road (W3, D1, L4), Sampdoria have seen six of their eight away league outings produce over 2.5 match goals with five witnessing both teams score (W3, D1, L1). A clear area of weakness is evident as the visitors have conceded eleven of their 13 away after the break, with nine coming beyond the hour mark.
- Players to watch: M’Bala Nzola (SPE) has scored three of his last five SA goals inside the 60th-70th minute period. For Sampdoria, Balde Keita has registered two goals, a yellow card and a red across his last two appearances.
- Hot stat: None of Spezia‘s eight home league fixtures have produced over 10.5 corners, with just one witnessing over 9.5.
