Spezia vs. Napoli Predictions & Betting Tips

The final day of the Serie A season is here as we look ahead to Sunday afternoon in these Spezia vs. Napoli predictions. Neither side has anything to play for this weekend, so the action at the Stadio Alberto Picco may be little more than an exhibition.

Spezia vs. Napoli odds

1 – Napoli to win – 7/12

2 – Over 2.5 goals – 8/15

3 – Napoli to keep a clean sheet – 9/5

4 – Osimhen to score first – 4/1

5 – Insigne to score anytime – 6/5

Napoli travel to the Stadio Alberto Picco on Sunday perhaps wishing that the season would last just a little longer. The Partenopei have been in scintillating form over the past few weeks, but will have little to show for it come the end of the Serie A season this week. 

The campaign has not gone as well for Thiago Motta’s Spezia side, although they will be glad to have safely avoided relegation with one game to go. Last week’s dramatic win at Udinese ensured the Aquilotti will be in Serie A next season, although will have done little to reassure their doubters. 

With third place guaranteed, there may be little motivation for Napoli to play to their best this weekend, but even at half speed their quality is expected to ensure the win. Spezia surprised their rivals with a 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture, but it is Luciano Spalletti’s side who we tip to take the three points this time around. 

The evidence of the past few games shows two teams in opposing form. Even with their recent win, Spezia have conceded two goals or more in their last five Serie A fixtures. Against a Napoli side averaging 1.9 scored per game, a bet on over 2.5 goals could pay off. 

That said, the visitors have a highly impressive defensive record, with just one goal conceded across their last three games. The Spezia front line may have improved in recent weeks, but a bet on Napoli to keep a clean sheet still has a good chance of being a winner. 

With their defence looking solid, Spalletti’s front line should thrive at the Stadio Alberto Picco. Victor Osimhen was on the scoresheet once again last week to improve on his goal tally for last season. The Nigerian is our tip to score first on Sunday, while outgoing Napoli captain Lorenzo Insigne is worth a punt to mark his final appearance for the club with a goal.

Spezia team news

Ebrime Colley, Leo Sena and Petko Hristov are all major doubts for Sunday’s game and are unlikely to feature. Simone Bastoni is also out, meaning another start for Jakub Kiwior in central midfield. Thiago Motta may hand a start to Salvador Ferrer after the full-back impressed against Udinese. 

Napoli team news

No changes are expected from Spalletti for this weekend’s match. With nothing to play for, the Azzurri coach may opt to hand opportunities to the likes of Diego Demme and Andrea Petagna, who have lost their spots in their Napoli starting XI of late. 

Kiyine given two-match Serie A ban for kick in the crotch

The Disciplinary Commission has announced the suspensions for the final Serie A round of the season, including a two-match ban for Sofian Kiyine after he kicked Lorenzo Pellegrini in the crotch.

That incident occurred during Roma’s 1-1 draw with Venezia, as Kiyine was caught on camera by VAR booting midfielder Pellegrini between the legs.

Kiyine, who is on loan from Roma’s rivals Lazio, also received a fine.

Sampdoria midfielder Omar Colley was given a one-match ban and a €10,000 fine for insulting the referee.

The season is over for these players, who were suspended for the Week 38 fixtures due to an accumulation of yellow cards.

They are Ederson (Salernitana), Patric (Lazio), Koray Gunter (Verona), Emmanuel Gyasi (Spezia), Youssef Maleh (Fiorentina), Ruslan Malinovskyi (Atalanta), David Okereke (Venezia) and Antonio Junior Vacca (Venezia).

Cagliari were fined €8,000 because their fans threw a firework and other objects onto the pitch during the 3-1 home defeat to Inter.

Thiago Motta: ‘Spezia players will remain in history’

Spezia coach Thiago Motta said his players will ‘remain in history’ after guaranteeing their place in Serie A for next season.

The Liguria club needed two points from the remaining two rounds to secure their top flight status for another year and got it done early, coming back from a goal down to win 3-2 away to Udinese.

That got the party started at the Dacia Arena and Thiago Motta seemed moved to tears by the achievement.

“It is a wonderful moment for all we have done to get here. It’s not easy when you already know the other results, as it can be distracting for the lads, but they stayed focused today,” the coach told DAZN.

“These lads have worked so hard from the first day and they will remain in history, because they achieved something extraordinary. I feel privileged at being able to work with this team.”

The former Genoa, PSG and Inter player then joked when asked how the Spezia players were going to celebrate their Serie A safety.

“If the lads don’t invite me along, I’m going to be furious! We win and lose all together, there is still one more game to play and we want to give our best, but today we celebrate.”

Thiago Motta’s future at Spezia is far from certain and there seemed to be moments during the season when he was on the verge of dismissal.

“There is trust between me and the lads, today we just want to focus on celebrating this result.”
